Vicente Sanz, who holds a degree in Law and Business Studies from the Universidad de Valencia and a Master’s degree in Taxation from the Valencia College of Economists, has more than 25 years of professional experience, during which time he has specialised in Tax and Corporate Law. Specifically, he provides recurring advice to companies and individuals in the field of tax planning, inheritance and, especially, in the areas of administrative and contentious-administrative litigation. In parallel, he has been a lecturer since 1993 at the main universities in the Valencian Community and is currently an associate lecturer in the Department of Tax Law at the University of Valencia.
The co-managing partners of Andersen in Iberia, José Vicente Morote and Íñigo Rodríguez-Sastre stated that “this integration is part of one of the main pillars on which the firm’s strategy is based, which is to maintain expansion and continue to develop at the highest level all the practices in each office and, in particular in Valencia, to position Andersen as the leading law firm in the Valencian Community.”
Along these lines, and in order to continue with the growth plan set out in the firm’s Strategic Plan and to provide the best services, Andersen will move its headquarters in Valencia to the building located at Calle Pintor Sorolla, 1, one of the most emblematic in the city centre. The new offices will occupy 2,500 square metres distributed over three floors where the different practice areas will be located with new innovative and flexible spaces that promote team integration and cooperation, as well as an exclusive area for clients, which includes various meeting rooms and an assembly hall.
The firm has carried out an analysis of the needs of the nearly 100 professionals who currently form part of Andersen in the Valencia office, in order to design the new headquarters according to the priorities of the professionals and clients. A change that will allow the firm to expand its offices by up to 50% more than the space it currently has at its Valencia headquarters.
The interior refurbishment project includes a major remodelling to adapt the spaces to both the sector and the firm’s culture, and work will begin immediately in order to be able to move to the new headquarters next May.
Andersen co-managing partners said: “The new facilities will allow us to grow quantitatively and qualitatively, as we will have more space and the latest technologies at the service of our professionals and clients.” “The change of headquarters is a new boost to the firm in Valencia, with which we can advance in the important growth objectives that the firm has in the short term and that seek to position it as the first in legal services in this autonomous region,” said Morote and Rodríguez-Sastre.
The transaction, which has been advised by the real estate services firm CBRE, has been closed with the agreement of Andersen and FIATC, as the owner of the building.
