Augusta Abogados launches in Brussels
Augusta Abogados, with offices in Barcelona and Madrid, has launched its first office abroad in Brussels
“The opening of the new office in Brussels is a natural consequence of our well-known strategy of having a strong international presence. Precisely at times like the present, we consider it essential to strengthen our commitment to Europe, as we are convinced that in the immediate future many answers and solutions to our clients’ challenges will be obtained in the EU offices,” stated Sergi Giménez, partner of the firm who has led this opening.
The new office, located in the heart of Brussels, is a joint project with the member firms of the IUROPE network, founded 29 years ago and made up of some of the most significant firms in international Business Law in their respective countries of origin.
“The experience gained through frequent collaboration with IUROPE members in complex cross-border transactions and projects allows us to develop innovative strategies for our clients,” said Giménez. “In addition, the Brussels office will be supported by Rudolf Strohmeier, who was until recently general manager of the Interinstitutional Publications Office of the European Union and has more than 35 years of experience in the EU institutions. This allows us to provide much stronger support on these issues,” he added.
In conjunction with the opening of the office, IUROPE and Augusta Abogados have reached an agreement with CONCILIUS Europe, a European leader in the representation of business interests at EU level. The collaboration will allow the determination of comprehensive and multidisciplinary strategies in EU matters, such as the identification and processing of direct aid or issues related to Competition Law. The significant investments announced by the EU authorities for the coming years, particularly those related to economic recovery, the digitalisation of the economy and the promotion of alternative resources and energies, augur a significant increase in consultations on these issues.
