De la Riva y Pastor Abogados, a firm founded in 2017, specialising in Administrative and Commercial Law, strengthens its Compliance area with the strategic alliance with Frago y Suárez Abogados Penalistas, a firm from A Coruña (Galicia), with more than 30 years of experience in the field of litigation in Spanish courts, led by Juan Antonio Frago and Verónica Suárez García.
Ignacio de la Riva and Félix Pastor, partners of the Madrid-based firm, state that they will offer their clients not only legal advice in the area of criminal law on corruption or crimes against urban planning and the environment, but that, from now on, “we are taking a step forward with professionals of the highest prestige who will help to represent the interests of clients in any criminal proceedings”. In addition, the firm’s 40% increase in turnover in 2021 – sustained since 2017 – is accompanied by an increase in the demand for services in criminal matters demanded by the firm’s clients.
“De la Riva y Pastor Abogados can provide us with a wealth of knowledge in public and corporate law, given its professional background and its subsequent practice in the field of law. This alliance allows us to offer a more complete and high-quality legal service to our clients”, explained Juan Antonio Frago. In addition, Verónica Suárez added that “each firm can generate synergies towards the other, as well as better cover two different geographical areas, such as Madrid and Galicia.”
