FORNESA ABOGADOS distinguished by Chambers and Legal 500

The prestigious law firm directories “Chambers And Partners” and “Legal 500” have decided to distinguish our Firm among the best in Spain for certain practice areas.

The directory “Chambers And Partners” lists the best law firms and lawyers in more than 180 countries. From the London head office, its team of more than 170 editors researches independently, through interviews with industry professionals and clients, the leading firms in their respective jurisdictions and practice areas.

“Chambers And Partners” names our Firm as a leader in the area of “Intellectual Property” for Spain, and lists our partner Carlos Valls in Band 4 of recommended lawyers for patent and trademark matters. The same directory considers that our Firm leads in Barcelona in the areas of “Employment” (highlighting Juan José Hita in Band 3 of the recommended lawyers), “Restructuring / Insolvency” (with Alicia Herrador in Band 3) and “Corporate Commercial” (with Tomás Fornesa in Band 4).

For its part, The Legal 500 Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) has been offering since 1991, on an annual basis, impartial opinions about leading law firms and lawyers throughout the world. Presently, the EMEA area comprises 81 countries and ranks more than 2,700 firms. This directory also makes its recommendations following independent research and takes into account the transactions carried out by the firms during the previous year, the experience and depth of the teams, the specialisms of the various practice areas and, more importantly, the opinions of the law firms’ clients.

In the present edition, Legal 500 has RANKED FORNESA ABOGADOS in the highest ban (“Top Tier”) in the practice area of “Transport – Other Means of Transport”, thereby acknowledging the expertise and excellent industry knowledge of our Aviation Law team. The directory recommends the two partners in charge of the department, Jaime Fernández and Sergi Giménez, and awards the latter the distinction of being among the top five “Leading Individuals” of this practice area.

FORNESA ABOGADOS has also been recommended in the areas of “Commercial, Corporate & M&A” and “Intellectual Property”, under the leadership of Tomás Fornesa and Carlos Valls respectively. Both are listed among the specialist lawyers recommended in Spain.

These acknowledgements would not be possible without the ongoing support of all the members of the Firm nor without our ongoing training programmes. For us, they are an incentive to continue offering legal services with high added value in areas which require a deep level of expertise and agile and efficient answers in the interests of our clients, to whom we certainly must be grateful for the confidence shown.
