You Deserve The Best Lawyers

We have more than 25 years of experience in different areas of the legal profession


“Great professionals and better people. Good advice and they have my full trust”

Manuel Torres
Professional soccer player

“I have found the confidence and legal support of a business law advisor who has provided us with valuable professional services in our international development: negotiation and drafting of commercial agreements, company acquisitions, protection of our intellectual property rights, etc. Lawyers with knowledge, experience and global vision are essential for companies like AGQ Labs”

Estanislao Martínez
CEO and Executive Chairman of Agq Labs

“We worked together for 8 years in Spain and then throughout Europe, in a wide range of areas; in particular international, corporate, mergers and acquisitions, labour and tax. He was the perfect advisor: expert in his subject matter, always producing work of the highest quality, on time and quickly became more of an advisor than a lawyer. He is the quintessential professional and I would work with him again at any time.”
