Grant Thornton Spain, part of the Grant Thornton International network, and Sanguino Abogados (Seville) have joined forces to create a new professional services firm that aspires to lead the Andalusian market. The new Firm offers Andalusian companies a complete, multidisciplinary portfolio of services, with a strong focus on innovation, sustainability, technology, and urban planning.
The roadmap designed by the two new partners marks the immediate launch of a Firm at the full disposal of Sevillian and Andalusian businesses, regardless of their location, size, sector, and specific needs. This exclusive collaboration allows Grant Thornton to increase its geographical reach in Andalusia beyond Málaga, having a presence in Seville for the first time; and, in turn, the agreement allows Sanguino to add to its prestigious legal practice in Andalusia additional services that Sevillian and Andalusian companies are increasingly demanding in a changing and highly digitalised environment.
Both firms have been working together in the past on projects for specific Andalusian clients or exchanging know-how on different matters. As a result of this ongoing relationship, Grant Thornton and Sanguino understand that now is the time to work more closely together because they share similar characteristics in their service provision, such as proximity and personal concern for their clients; vocation for their professionals, and internal staff; and a singular character for constant innovation, either through the updating of the most classic legal services or by incorporating more innovative advice that fits new business models, and more disruptive business processes.
The new firm, which already operates in the Andalusian market with full availability, will work in a first commercial phase through a legal structure that maintains the corporate independence and commercial identity of both firms, Grant Thornton and Sanguino, to take advantage of all possible synergies associated with the potential and territorial positioning of both. The headquarters of this strategic alliance will be located in Sanguino’s current offices, in Casa Ybarra at Avenida Menéndez Pelayo 4, one of the most representative buildings of the Seville of the 1929 Exhibition, recently recovered by Sanguino to open it to the city of Seville and now, as the nerve centre of this alliance between the two firms.
