Uría Menéndez recognised twice at the IFLR European Awards

Uría Menéndez was recognised twice at the IFLR European Awards in a ceremony hosted in London at the Hotel Grosvenor, receiving the award for Most Innovative Firm of the Year in Spain and the Best Deal of the Year in Private Equity for Blackstone’s IPO of Hispania.

This represents the fifth time that Uría Menéndez has won the award for Most Innovative Firm, having won it in the 2008, 2009, 2012 and 2018 editions (in 2013, Uría Menéndez - Proença de Carvalho received the award for the first time in Portugal), and the second consecutive year in which the firm was recognised twice at the event.

The Best Deal of the Year in Private Equity was awarded for the firm’s advice to Hispania in its IPO by Blackstone. The transaction, valued at EUR 1.7 billion, was completed on 22 June 2018.
