Jausas, one of Barcelona’s independent firms, has recently taken over A & S Sampere Abogados, hoping to finally cement their presence in Madrid.
Prominent in life sciences, IP, litigation and restructuring and refinancing, Jausas has so far concentrated on growing its specific sector expertise and base in Barcelona. But Agustín Bou, Managing Partner of the firm, has always had the very clear goal of consolidating and expanding his firm’s practice and profile in the Spanish capital.
However, this has not always been as easy as they had hoped. The tie up with A & S Sampere Abogados could finally see this goal become a reality. The 14-lawyer firm specialises in labour law, and is known as a boutique leader in its field. Founding Partner Ignacio Sampere will join Jausas as a Partner.
Having so far not been able to really make their presence felt in Madrid, this merger may just be what sets Jausas on its way.
