Firm profile submitted by GOLD Abogados

GOLD Abogados was founded in 2008 in Madrid (Spain) as an independent legal boutique aiming to provide high quality legal services to clients mainly active in regulated and complex sectors (such as energy, telecoms, construction and infrastructures, transport, retail, etc). In a few years, the firm has successfully achieved the goal of being positioned between the leading legal firms acting in Spain in certain sophisticated areas of law, such as project finance, regulation and competition, and dispute resolution (commercial litigation, arbitration and bankruptcy). The firm’s philosophy is based on offering tailor-made legal solutions to each one of its domestic and international clients, with full dedication by specialised partners from the beginning to the end of each matter. The high level of transparency regarding the services provided and their cost is also very much appreciated by its clients. In May 2012, the firm was awarded with the “Client Service Award” in Spain by Chambers and Partners.
