An international firm

Progress and new international challenges

Garrigues is an international firm and we have based our expansion model on the roll-out of a network of own offices, with teams that share the same business culture and which advise on the main areas of business law under a single brand. We firmly believe that this is the best way to offer an excellent, integrated service. We currently have offices in 13 countries: Belgium, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, China, Spain, the US, Morocco, Mexico, Peru, Poland, Portugal and the UK.

Latin America

Garrigues is already a benchmark in Latin America but still has room to grow and become a leader in the different practice areas. Our commitment to organic growth, by opening own offices, enables us offer our clients a consistent way of doing things and the same standard of quality wherever they may be.

Latin America will continue to be a major focus, with growth and consolidation of existing offices (in Colombia, Peru, Brazil, Mexico and Chile) through the hiring of professionals and the incorporation of new practice areas forming the core of our strategy. The firm is always weighing the possibility of opening new offices elsewhere in the region as well.
