The new Málaga office will open its doors in the first weeks of 2023 in the area of Calle Larios and under the direction of Litigation partner José Miguel Soriano, who until now has been working in the Madrid office.
Fernando Taboada, a specialist in Public Law and Urban Planning and, until now, managing partner of the Málaga office of Cremades & Calvo Sotelo, will join the new location.
José Vicente Morote and Iñigo Rodríguez-Sastre, managing partners of Andersen in Iberia, emphasised that “the opening of this new office is a reflection of Andersen’s clear commitment to Spain” and explained that Málaga was one of the cities where a firm like Andersen, which is tremendously dynamic and committed to the technology sector, could not fail to be present.
At this point, they highlighted the great synergies that will allow the development of the Technology Hub in Malaga, thanks to the capabilities of Andersen’s team, which offers a comprehensive service in new technologies, including a wide range of services to accompany clients in cybersecurity, blockchain or Web3, among others.
Morote and Rodríguez-Sastre have stressed that “Andersen only plans to have a presence in the most strategic cities in the country to develop offices at the highest level and provide full service in all areas in each of them”. In this way, they continued, “the objective is to integrate the best talent and team in our Malaga office to make it one of the leading legal services firms in the Andalusian market, to which we are 100% committed.”
Finally, they have highlighted that this new expansion is part of the good results being achieved by the firm at a national level, which has managed to triple its turnover in five years, as it started 2017 with a budget of €13 million and expects to close 2022 with a turnover of more than €40 million, growing from 160 professionals to more than 350 currently.
The firm thus reaches a new milestone in the strategy of strong expansion initiated two years ago, extending coverage to Malaga for the development of business both in Andalusia and throughout Spain, where it already has five offices, having a presence in the main cities of the country, Madrid, Valencia, Barcelona, and Seville, as well as an office in Lisbon.
