Our identity and position is the result of serving and spearheading the legal industry over the last 80 years. At each stage in our history, we evolved and anticipated the changes that laid ahead, remaining true to the essential values of our profession and our firm, standing by every client and making sure we could identify and interpret their needs and offer the best possible advice.
- We contributed to the modernization of the Spanish legal profession by importing the management model on which law firms of English-speaking countries are based and establishing ourselves as the firm of reference for the first foreign firms to set up in Spain.
- We were the first Spanish law firm to have its own offices in New York, Brussels and Shanghai.
- We saw the future potential of Latin America, where we committed to organic growth through the opening of our own offices, staffed by local teams and imbued with the Garrigues culture.
- We broke new ground in the technological transformation of the legal sector: integrated and efficient management, collaboration 4.0, big data strategy, implementation of RPA, artificial intelligence and new innovation and internal entrepreneurship models.
According to the Financial Times, Garrigues is one of the ten European law firms that have changed the rules of the game in the legal services industry in the last decade. These game changers are known for seeking new solutions that are more efficient, more productive and more competitive. In 2020, Garrigues received the award for the “Most Innovative Law Firm of Continental Europe’ in the FT Innovative Lawyers Awards. Forbes magazine also named Garrigues the Most Innovative Law Firm in Spain. And for two years running the firm has received the Expansión Legal Award for the most innovative project.
“We can’t predict the future, but we can prepare ourselves for all possible scenarios. Always true to our values, ethics and quality form the backbone of our firm,” affirms the executive chairman of Garrigues, Fernando Vives.
