Andersen in Spain has integrated the Portuguese Lisbon-based member firm of Andersen Global into its business structure, increasing its team’s capabilities and establishing a new pillar in its expansion strategy.
The management of Andersen in Iberia involving Madrid, Valencia, Barcelona, Seville and Lisbon unifies through this transaction, fulfilling one of Andersen in Madrid’s 2021-2023 Strategic Plan objectives. This specific objective focused on identifying a solution to best serve national and international clients with operations and business interests in the Iberian Peninsula
“The addition of the Lisbon-based team is a turning point for the management and organization of the firm, opening an avenue for growth and reinforcing the firm’s ability to provide its clients with comprehensive, seamless service regardless of borders,” said José Vicente Morote and Íñigo Rodríguez-Sastre, Co-Managing Partners of Andersen’s Madrid offices. “The three-year Strategic Plan has reached a high level of development in its first nine months with this incorporation and the integration of DA Lawyers last July and CHR in January”, they said.
“We have been involved in several of the most important corporate transactions in the legal sector in the Iberian Peninsula this year with the firm objective of continuing our expansion plan and positioning ourselves among the top 10 law firms operating in Spain in the short term,” stressed the co-managing partners of Andersen in Iberia.
Managing Partner of the Lisbon office, José Mota Soares, added: “we previously established a strong working relationship with Andersen in Spain and given our synergy, this integration was the next logical step to ensure our clients continue to receive best-in-class service. We share the same vision for the growth and development of the practice, which is based on our global organization’s values and ‘one-firm’ culture.”
