Lawesome lands in Catalonia with a team led by Robert Burgell

Lawesome has announced its foray into the Catalan market with the opening of Lawesome Catalunya, led by Robert Burguell, who joins the team as Managing Partner for Catalonia. They have extended their reach in the region through new offices in Barcelona and Girona, which represents a significant step forward for the firm, consolidating its presence in Catalonia, where it already had a client base without a physical location until now.

Lawesome CAT will be led by Robert Burgell, who joins the team as Managing Partner for Catalonia. Burgell brings nearly fifteen years of experience in the corporate and commercial sector, having worked in renowned firms such as Marimón Abogados, BDO and Lexcrea. He has specialized in M&A, venture capital, advising both investment funds and target companies, and special corporate finance transactions, having a very relevant presence in recent years in advising investment funds and emerging and technology-based companies.


Robert Burgell expresses his enthusiasm at joining Lawesome at such a crucial time: “Joining such an ambitious project with the launch in Catalonia is a great challenge. I am impressed not only by the firm’s rapid and solid growth and expansion in recent years, but also by its culture and unique approach to high-value corporate transactions.”

Xabier Álvarez, CEO of Lawesome, highlights that “the expansion to Catalonia, not only with a presence in Barcelona, but giving local capillarity with the office in Girona, is, first, one more step in the geographical expansion strategy of the Firm, but also the confirmation of our firm commitment to physical and local presence in Catalonia, where we already had a growing client base and operations, but we felt it was necessary to take the next step and have a local, solid and permanent implementation.”
