Uría Menéndez is a law firm with more than 70 years of experience. We currently have seventeen offices in Spain, Portugal, where we operate as Uría Menéndez - Proença de Carvalho, and main financial centres in the rest of Europe, the Americas and Asia.
We advise on Spanish, Portuguese and EU law in business-related matters and assist our clients in their international transactions through our network of offices and our close links with prestigious law firms around the world. Around 50 per cent of our client base is international and includes, among others, 85% of the IBEX 35 companies, 50 per cent of the FTSE Euro 100 and 50 per cent of the PSI 20.
After almost two decades in Latin America, where we have a longstanding relationship with key players, we have further strengthened our ties to the region with the creation of the first major Ibero-American law firm Philippi, Prietocarrizosa, Ferrero DU & Uría (PPU), arising from the merger between leading firms in Chile, Colombia and Peru.
Through Uría Menéndez and PPU combined we can offer our clients a global team of 1,000 lawyers, including more than 375 based in Latin America, where we have recently been acknowledged by Chambers as the “Latin American firm of the Year”.
