Spain-based Garrigues, the top grossing law firm in Continental Europe, is reviewing its international presence and, as a result, has decided to centralize all services to clients in the CEE region out of its Warsaw office.  This will involve leaving the Romanian market by year-end.

The Warsaw office of Garrigues has been recently reinforced with the hire of top local professionals specializing in Corporate transactions, M&A and Capital Markets.  This decision reflects both its continuous growth in market share in Poland as well as its strong commitment to the CEE market.

“These decisions are part of our current strategy in the CEE whereby the Firm will centralize all its functions and services through its Warsaw office, an efficient gateway to all our clients´ needs in this region”, said Alejandro Miquel, head of Garrigues’ CEE operations.

This move could not have been possible without the agreement reached with Garrigues partner in Bucharest, Mihai Mares, who, with his own team, will make sure that existing clients continue to be served with the same level of excellence by the same professionals that have assisted them in the past, having also reached a “best friends” agreement covering mutual referrals of clients in the future.
