“Uría Menéndez is an independent law firm that was founded in Madrid in 1946 by Professor Rodrigo Uría González. We currently have seventeen offices in Spain, Portugal, where we operate as Uría Menéndez - Proença de Carvalho, and major cities in Europe, the Americas and Asia. We advise on Spanish, Portuguese and EU law in business-related matters and assist our clients in their international transactions through our network of offices and our close links with prestigious law firms around the world.

After almost two decades in Latin America, we have further strengthened our ties to the region with the creation of the first major Ibero-American law firm Philippi, Prietocarrizosa, Ferrero DU & Uría (PPU). PPU was set up in January 2015 following the merger of Philippi (Chile) and Prietocarrizosa (Colombia) and grew in January 2016 with the incorporation of the Peruvian law firms Ferrero Abogados and Delmar Ugarte. PPU now has more than 350 lawyers and offices in Chile (Santiago), Colombia (Bogotá and Barranquilla) and Peru (Lima).

Uría Menéndez has a specialised practice group dedicated exclusively to environmental law. Uría Menéndez’s Environmental Law Practice Area is considered one of the leaders in the Iberian legal market and boasts a permanent group of more than twenty lawyers based in our Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Bilbao, Lisbon and Porto offices. This enables us to manage transactions throughout Spain and Portugal while at all times maintaining the strict professional standards of excellence and quality that characterise our firm.”
