The UK publication The Lawyer named Garrigues a “highly commended firm” at last night’s The Lawyer awards ceremony held in London.
Fernando Vives, executive chairman of Garrigues, has received the Chambers Europe Award for his outstanding contribution to the legal profession. The international directory Chambers and Partners bestows the exclusive Outstanding Contribution Award on the most influential lawyers in the profession who are also leaders in their respective practice areas. This year, for the first time in the history of the awards, the ceremony was held in Madrid, bringing together lawyers from the most prestigious firms in 20 European countries.
Garrigues has taken the award for ‘Law Firm of the Year: Iberia’, conferred by UK publication The Lawyer at its annual European Awards ceremony in London. The award, to which the major Spanish and Portuguese law firms aspire, was also won by the firm two years ago. This year, Garrigues was also shortlisted in another two categories: ‘Global Strategic Initiative of the Year’ and ‘European Law Firm of the Year’, where it was the only Spanish law firm in the running.
Once again, Garrigues has been among the prize-winners at the “Client Choice Awards” which are given each year by the legal journal International Law Office (ILO) with the collaboration of the Lexology portal.
Garrigues has received the European Law Firm of the Year award from the international legal journal Legal Week for the third time. This is one of the most prestigious accolades in the legal sector, awarded to leading firms, teams and professionals which have stood out for their accomplishments in 2017 in the European legal market.
Garrigues received the Regional Client Service Award in Latin America at the annual awards organized by UK directory Chambers & Partners to recognize the work of local and international firms operating in the region.
Garrigues partners José Luis Ortín and David Vich have been ranked among the forty most outstanding young lawyers working in the legal sector in Spain and Portugal. The fifth edition of the “40 under Forty’ awards - which are presented by the international journal Iberian Lawyer every two years - was held yesterday in Barcelona.
The Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equal Opportunity has awarded Garrigues the distinction of being an Equal Opportunity Company, a brand of excellence that acknowledges companies that stand out “in a relevant and specially significant way in the application of equal opportunity Plan policies”. Garrigues is the only law firm this year to achieve the distinction (published last Saturday in the Official State Gazette), which has been awarded to companies in different sectors since 2010.
