Company Law and Corporate Governance

“It’s axiomatic but both clients and competitors agree that Uría Menéndez’s strength lies in the consistent standard of its lawyers, from respected senior partners to talented associates (…). They are very commercial and seem to have a good mix of international lawyers. Also they seem to have the best young people as well, so the firm has just the highest quality all the way through.” (IFLR 1000)
