Last night the prestigious British publication International Tax Review named Uría Menéndez Spain Tax Firm of the Year in its eleventh annual edition of the European Tax Awards.

For another year, the Best Friends Tax Network to which Uría Menéndez belongs, received the European Tax Disputes firm of the Year award.
The awards ceremony was held in London and brought together representatives from numerous law firms, accounting firms and companies from across Europe. Jesús López Tello, a tax partner in the firm, said “The firm as a whole and the tax team in particular have had a very intense year, and it is an honour and a privilege that this effort and dedication are recognised by the many awards given by what is probably the leading publication in the profession. The renewed recognition of the Best Friends Tax Network is further acknowledgement and support for the working model we share with our best friend firms in the main European jurisdictions”.
International Tax Review is one of the most widely read and respected tax publications. For its annual awards, the editorial team takes into special consideration the size of the firm’s tax team as well as the complexity and innovation involved in the transactions submitted.
