Garrigues and the Asociación Española de Leasing y Renting (AELR) (Spanish association of finance and operating lease entities) presented the work entitled “El Régimen Fiscal de las Operaciones de Arrendamiento Financiero” at an event held at the firm's main offices in Madrid. The participants at this event included the chairman of the AELR, José Coronel de Palma y Martínez-Agulló; the chairman of the Spanish Accounting and Audit Institute (ICAC), Enrique Rubio; and Eduardo Abad, the partner in charge of Garrigues’ tax department, who coordinated the work of the group of experts from the firm by which this book was produced.

This disparity in the rate at which both have changed, has given rise to a number of legal questions that require a global approach to their new realities, and a response that cuts across all areas of law (corporate and commercial, labor, tax, administrative, data protection or intellectual property law). This fact was made abundantly clear in the 1st Garrigues Digital Forum, held at the firm's Madrid offices on 14 June.
Fernando Vives, executive chairman of Garrigues, has received the Chambers Europe Award for his outstanding contribution to the legal profession.

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.
The design and implementation of a share-based incentive plan involves three steps: an analysis of market trends; the need to comply with best practices recommended by proxy advisors and the CNMV good governance code; and preparation of all necessary legal documentation for approval by the company’s governing bodies and the shareholders’ meeting.
March 9 will see the entry into force of the new Public Sector Contracts Act transposing to the Spanish legal system the directives with which the European Union aims to establish a more efficient and transparent framework for public contracting, and improved economic conditions  for governments.
