An international firm

Progress and new international challenges

Garrigues’ international commitment, which dates back to its very beginnings and has been further consolidated over the past decade, has propelled the firm to open offices in 13 countries in Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia, which allows us to not only accompany our clients in their international expansion and be highly involved in local markets, but also to participate in the largest cross-border deals. We have won the trust of 4,029 businesses from 86 countries.

Garrigues’ strength in the Americas and Europe (particularly bolstered by our two offices in Portugal) is rounded out by the firm’s solid presence in China (Beijing and Shanghai) and Africa (Casablanca) and our representative offices in the major international financial hubs of London and New York.
