Garrigues has been named ‘Tax Firm of the Year’ in Spain for the third year running by the International Tax Review at the third annual European Tax Awards, which aim to reward excellence at European tax firms over the last year. The Firm was also nominated in the “Best Transfer Pricing Firm in Spain” category. Garrigues Portugal received nominations in both categories.
The awards panel evaluated the body of tax-related work performed by Garrigues in 2006, including the provision of advisory services in major deals, such as the takeover of Arcelor by Mittal Steel, for which Garrigues was awarded the IFLR prize for the “M&A Deal of the Year” in March.
Garrigues’ tax practice currently has more than 540 professionals, of whom 74 are partners. Alongside the practice’s reputation, the panel looked at the international expansion of the Firm over the last year. The opening of an office in Warsaw, the consolidation of Garrigues’ international offices, and the growth and profile of the Affinitas international alliance and the Taxand network all contributed to achieving the award.
In addition to Garrigues, two other Taxand member firms were also named “Tax Firm of the Year” in their respective countries: Bech-Brunn (Denmark) and Atoz (Luxembourg). Taxand, the independent tax network of which Garrigues is a founding member, currently has 38 member firms across five continents, with over 1,500 professionals, 300 of whom are partners.
