Uría Menéndez continues to lead the way in Spain according to Chambers Europe 2019

Uría Menéndez continues to lead Spain’s business-law market according to the 2019 edition of the Chambers Europe guide, published by the legal journal Chambers & Partners. The firm has once again topped the table, ranking Band 1 in 19 practice areas, Band 2 in six practice areas and Band 3 in two practice areas.

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

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