What the team is known for

An international powerhouse offering increasingly strong resources and local relationships in Spain. Globally, the firm is widely regarded as a leader across transactions, and the Spanish team closely works with colleagues in its international offices. Spanish teams provide local law advice for clients entering the market, and also show proficiency in project managing multi-jurisdictional transactions across finance and M&A.

The firm has grown its resources and expertise in Madrid, and is increasingly seen as a go-to for high-end cross-border deals. The team competently assists major private equity players, corporates and investors entering Spain. The Madrid office also demonstrates an ability to project-manage international work, often linking Spanish clients to the US and Latin American markets.

Strengths

A client commends the firm for its cross-office collaboration in multi-jurisdictional finance mandates: "When we work with Latham, we work with people from Madrid and from London." The interviewee claims that the firm "gives value in the big transactions" involving English or US law.

Clients highlight the firm's faculty for cross-border antitrust matters. An interviewee notes: "Latham has a very good ability to assist us in international operations and EU-level cases. They have an office  in Brussels, which can be active with the European Commission." Another client reports: "There are international elements, which are well handled and assessed by the firm."

Another client admires the lawyers' multilingual capabilities, adding: "Their global skills are beyond compare."
