What the team is known for
This content is provided by Uría Menéndez.
We are widely acknowledged as a specialist corporate firm. Since the firm’s foundation, we have provided advice in all areas of corporate law: mergers and acquisitions, capital markets, financial law, commercial contracts, maritime law, company law and insurance.
The increasing complexity of transactions and the enactment of industry-specific legislation have paved the way for the creation of new specialist practice areas. However, far from departing from our corporate tradition, our specialist practice areas have consolidated our prestigious Corporate and Commercial Practice Area. It is the cornerstone of our firm and is staffed by a group of lawyers specialised in advising companies and individuals alike in all types of business, financial and commercial transactions, be they national, foreign, listed or unlisted. We advise on general commercial law matters that are common to all practice areas and industry sectors, such as general contracts, the incorporation and liquidation of companies, keeping of company records and agency agreements.
Our leadership in commercial law is rooted in the outstanding skills and experience of our lawyers, their active teaching role at universities and business schools, their involvement in the drafting of new legislation, and their participation in large-scale global transactions.
