The Permira Funds, a PE fund with a strong track record in investments in Consumer and Education, has reached an agreement with the law firm Garrigues to develop high quality and specialized programs in the social sciences area both in Spain and Portugal.
Garrigues received the FT European award for legal innovation in London last night, for creating a new way to help international investors recover non-performing loans (NPL) from financial institutions. The newspaper took into account the huge impact of this legal innovation, which creates a new standard and improves competition and the appeal of the Spanish NPL market, one of the most active in Europe. This new approach, conceived by Garrigues’ Restructuring and Insolvency Department, allows funds to rapidly foreclose, auction and award the assets, saving a great deal of time and money.
Foundation29 (Fundación 29 de febrero) is a non-profit organization specialised in artificial intelligence applied to health. It creates technological tools based on aggregation, treatment and protection of medical data and its use in intelligent systems that help patients, professionals and industry take decisions.
The Garrigues Mexico office has been recognized for another year running (the fourth in a row) as a Socially Responsible Enterprise (ESR® 2018), a distinction awarded by Centro Mexicano para la Filantropía (Cemefi) and Alianza por la Responsabilidad Social Empresarial (AliaRSE) to companies that have duly met the established corporate social responsibility standards.
