Uría Menéndez continues to lead the way in Spain according to Chambers Europe 2018

Uría Menéndez remains the leader in Spain’s business-law market according to the 2018 edition of the Chambers Europe guide, published by the legal journal Chambers & Partners. The firm has continued to top the table, ranking Band 1 in twenty practice areas, Band 2 in seven practice areas and Band 3 in one practice area. Worth noting is Uría Menéndez’s status as the sole firm to be ranked in Band 1 for Real Estate.

In Portugal, Uría Menéndez - Proença de Carvalho has remained one of the country’s top firms, receiving recommendations in the majority of practice areas analysed.

With regard to rankings for individuals, once again we must highlight the special mentions for Luis de Carlos, as Eminent Practitioner in Capital Markets (Equity), and Ignacio García-Perrote (Employment), Duarte Garín (Real Estate) and Agustín González (Intellectual Property: Copyrights) as Star Individuals. Carlos Bueren and Daniel Proença de Carvalho are listed as Senior Statesmen for Dispute Resolution (Corporate Crime).
