Abdón Pedrajas allies with Littler Mendelson on its landing in Spain

Abdón Pedrajas Littler will be part of Littler Global, the international structure of US giant Littler Mendelson

Abdón Pedrajas will be part as exclusive partner in Spain of Littler Global, the international structure of the US Labour law firm Littler Mendelson from January 1, 2021. This way, Littler will add Madrid and Barcelona to its more than 90 offices in the Americas, Europe and Asia, where more than 1,500 Labour lawyers work.

The signing of this agreement means the absolute internationalisation of Abdón Pedrajas, who will advise exclusively in Spain on the North American law firm matters and the other firms that make up Littler Global. In addition, they will have unique global coverage for all its Spanish clients with international matters and operations, especially in Latin America, where Littler has offices in ten jurisdictions, including Colombia and Mexico, two of the countries that attract most investment from Spanish companies in the region.

In this new phase, Abdón Pedrajas Littler, the brand under which the firm will operate from now on, “will maintain the independence, values and work philosophy that have characterised the firm over the last half-century, but will expand its focus on global projects and actions. This is a well-thought-out decision that offers us a magnificent opportunity to intensify our capacity to offer international advice to our clients, from the hand of one of the most important Labour law firms in the world, but at the same time maintaining our independence in decision-making and organisational structure,” Antonio Pedrajas (pictured left), the firm’s managing partner explained, who will join Littler Global Board from now on, together with partner and international firm´s director Sonia Cortés (pictured right).
