September 27, 2010

Uría Menéndez was honoured by the British publication The Lawyer as Law Firm of the Year: Iberia at the second edition of its European Awards.

The award ceremony was held yesterday in Berlin. The event brought together representatives from a broad spectrum of the European legal sector. Diego Armero, partner of Uría Menéndez, received the award and stated that 'we are very proud to have received this distinction, which recognises, at a European level, the hard work of all the members of the firm, both in Spain and Portugal, to meet the needs of our clients in this complicated situation.'

Last year The Lawyer, which also hosts an awards ceremony recognising law firms around the world, decided to launch the European Awards to distinguish the work and evolution of law firms in Europe. A panel of judges, including managing partners at private practice firms and in-house counsel at multinational companies, along with the editorial board of The Lawyer, studied and analysed more than 100 nominations to identify the most prominent law firms on the European continent.
