Montero Aramburu closed the 2021 financial year with a turnover of €19.3 million, which represents a growth of 14.4% compared to the previous year, when it earned €17.1 million. In this way, and coinciding with the 50th anniversary of its foundation, the firm consolidates its position as a leading law firm in Andalusia and the Canary Islands.
The firm faces the year 2022 with a firm commitment to strengthen the Madrid office, which is key to providing comprehensive advice to national clients. Partner Ignacio Albendea Solís, a member of the firm since 1997 and currently a partner in Public Law, will take over the management of the Madrid office and will face the challenge of consolidating a project that began in 2018, when the firm began an ambitious bid to consolidate its presence in the Spanish capital by incorporating three new partners and their corresponding teams.
During 2022, the firm, co-directed by Leonardo Neri and Javier Valdecantos (pictured), will move to new offices in Madrid in order to meet the significant growth forecast and facilitate the incorporation of talent. In 2021, 55 professionals joined the firm, bringing the firm’s total to 277 members including lawyers, economists and general services staff, and launched new practice areas, such as Digital Law and Technology Business.
“Proof of the firm’s business experience and its positioning among the country’s large firms is its appointment as legal advisor in some of the large tenders awarded by the State in recent months to reactivate strategic companies affected by the health crisis,” the firm said.
Montero Aramburu plans to increase its share of penetration in Andalusia, its main market, in the current financial year, through the collaboration agreement reached last May with the Malaga firm GVA Gómez-Villares & Atencia, which will enable the firm to position itself more strongly in the eastern part of the region, thus strengthening its presence throughout the autonomous community.
Finally, the firm has promoted Soledad Fernández Reyes and Miguel Cuesta Boothman, until now professional partners responsible for the civil litigation and commercial areas of the Seville and Madrid offices, respectively, as new quota partners.
