Cuatrecasas is a leading law firm on the Iberian Peninsula, with head offices in Portugal and Spain and an international presence in over 10 countries.
With a multidisciplinary and diverse team of over 1,000 lawyers and 24 nationalities, it advises on all areas of business law, applying a sectoral approach.
Sixteen offices on the Iberian Peninsula coordinate with the firm’s teams in Beijing, Bogotá, Brussels, Casablanca, London, Luanda, Maputo, Mexico City, New York, São Paulo and Shanghai, thus optimising efficiency of resources and client proximity, and benefitting from the different time zones. The international desks (Africa, Latin America, China, France, Germanic countries and the Middle East) and over 20 country-specific groups guarantee the comprehensive approach of the legal advice from Portugal and Spain. In continental Europe, Cuatrecasas has developed a non-exclusive network with three other leading law firms – Chiomenti in Italy, Gide in France and Gleiss Lutz in Germany.
The firm’s litigation practice has over 200 highly qualified lawyers organised by both legal specialty and market knowledge. The experience and knowledge of local courts ensure the most efficient and successful approach to each case. They carry out intense counseling with a view to avoiding court proceedings and, if the case does go to trial, to guaranteeing the client a strong procedural position. They use alternative dispute resolution methods. The arbitration group consists of over 30 lawyers who can work in different languages and legal systems, and can act as counsels and arbitrators. They specialise in international, domestic and investment arbitration.
