Uría Menéndez is one of the most prestigious independent law firms in the Iberian market. Founded in the 1940s, we have over 500 lawyers in 17 offices located in the most important financial centres in Europe, the Americas and Asia.

Our international structure allows us to provide Spanish, Portuguese and EU legal advice to clients on their investments in the Iberian Peninsula and abroad. We work in close collaboration with renowned firms in Latin American and our network of “best friends” from France (Bredin Prat), Germany (Hengeler Mueller), Italy (BonelliErede), the Netherlands (De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek) and the United Kingdom (Slaughter and May). Uría Menéndez is also a member of international associations such as Lex Mundi and the IBA (International Bar Association).

Our capacity for innovation is the direct result of our close links with academia. Many of our lawyers also lecture at the most prestigious universities and business schools in Spain and Portugal.

The European MAKE study ("Most Admired Knowledge Enterprises") has on numerous occasions named us one of the best European firms in the areas of knowledge management and innovation.

Harvard Business School has identified us as an example of professional success and uses our firm as a case study in its management courses.
