These awards are granted every year by the International Tax Review to recognize the excellence of European firms in their respective countries. For Garrigues, the sum of these two awards consolidates its leadership in the Iberian tax services market. The awards ceremony was held last night at London’s Dorchester Hotel.
This is the seventh year in a row that Garrigues has emerged victorious, making it the only firm to walk off with top honors at all the annual ‘European Tax Awards’.

Garrigues’ Portuguese tax practice took the award for the second year running after having consistently ranked well in these awards. Since the Portuguese team was set up just five years ago, the department has been a finalist in this same category every year and has always been included in the first tier of the World Tax directory published annually by International Tax Review.
