Seville office celebrates 10th anniversary and registers growth of over 10%

Cuatrecasas celebrates 10 years in Andalusia with a progressive growth rate, thanks to its excellent work in the banking sector based on transactions and disputes, in M&A transactions and in urban planning. The Seville office increased its turnover by 11% compared to last year, thus contributing to the firm’s overall growth. This percentage confirms the upward trend of its activity in recent years and is in line with the firm’s overall results, which reached €265 million in 2015.

Between the Seville and the Málaga office, the Cuatrecasas results in Andalusia contributed approximately 20% to the billing of the regional offices, proof of the region’s strong potential in the market. Although this good performance can be seen in all legal practices, there is emphasis on financial and real estate transactions.

Proof of increased activity at the Seville office is the fact that the team has grown: the office now employs 60 people, 40 of which are lawyers. In the last two years, José Moya became a partner of the Corporate and Commercial Practice, and Eduardo Caruz and Rafael Hidalgo were appointed counsel in the Litigation and Arbitration, and Corporate and Commercial Practices respectively.

Also, the office’s partners and counsel are acknowledged by leading international legal directories and rankings, including Chambers, Legal 500 and Best Lawyers.

Joaquín Cuesta, managing partner of the Seville office highlights that the good results “stem from the team’s work which combines a local approach with in-depth knowledge of the client, alongside the firm’s international and human resources. Seville and Andalusia will undoubtedly contribute to Cuatrecasas’s development in its efforts to become a benchmark law firm in Ibero-American.”
