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. All of this is reflected in our significant international billings, which account for 13% of Garrigues’ total revenue.

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.

Latin America

The firm implements an organic growth model, opening own offices staffed by local teams and imbued with the Garrigues culture, with our sights set on Latin America. Through its five offices in Chile, Colombia, Peru, Mexico and Brazil, Garrigues:

  • serves Latin American and multinational businesses from all sectors, with 226 professionals contributing both local and international knowledge and experience
  • is a benchmark in major intra-regional deals, ensuring the same quality of service with a one-stop shop model
  • coordinates cross-border transactions originating or culminating in Latin America

This integrated model has proven very successful, and Garrigues’ office network currently represents one of the leading direct presences in the region.

9.5% of our clients come from Latin America. Looking at our international clients (i.e. excluding Spain and Portugal), we have more Latin American than European clients. 45% of the foreign companies and organizations that we advise come from the region.
