The Board of Partners of Garrigues has unanimously reappointed José María Alonso Puig and Miguel Gordillo Moro as Managing Partners of the Firm for a further four-year term of office, their third consecutive appointment as the Firm’s top executives. Both men have been managing partners since 2000. The Garrigues Partners Meeting, held at La Toja on June 29 and 30, currently consists of 185 partners.

José María Alonso was born in Madrid in 1953 and has a Law Degree from Madrid Complutense University. He joined J&A Garrigues in 1978 and was Head of the Litigation and Arbitration Department from 1983 to 2000. He is one of the most prestigious arbitrators in Spain and currently chairs the Spanish Arbitration Club. He has been Secretary-General of the Association for the Advancement of Management since 2005.

Miguel Gordillo was born in Madrid in 1952 and has a Degree in Law and Business Studies from ICADE (E3). An expert in tax law, he joined Andersen Asesores Legales y Tributarios in 1974. Specializing in large international tax projects, mergers and acquisition, and corporate restructurings, he was Managing Partner of the Barcelona Office (1989-1993) and Manager of the Spanish Tax Practice and the Madrid Office from 1993 to 2000.

New office in Almería

The Board of Partners also approved, among other matters, the opening of a new office in Almería. This consolidates the Firm’s presence in Andalucía, where it already has 170 professionals and three offices in Seville, Málaga and Granada.

“Our aim is to always be close to our clients and assist them wherever they go,” explained David Moreno, the Garrigues managing partner in Andalucía. “Almería is a province that generates significant business activity and has a growing reputation for exports, and this demands specific, extremely high-quality tax and legal advisory services. We believe Garrigues can assist the Almería business community in this task.”

The new office, which will be operative from September, will provide all types of legal and tax services from the outset.

Garrigues has the largest network of offices in Spain (25 including the Almería office) located in almost all of the autonomous communities. The Firm also has offices in New York, Brussels, Lisbon, Shanghai and Casablanca.
