The legal directory Chambers & Partners has highlighted Andersen Tax & Legal as a recommended firm in the areas of 'Dispute Resolution' and Corporate/MA& in the new edition of the Chambers Europe 2018. The two areas are in band 5 of this ranking, which analyses the capabilities of law firms and lawyers worldwide. Moreover, Andersen Tax & Legal has been classed as a "Other Noted Firm" in the Tax practice area.

Specifically, Andersen Tax & Legal has been recognized as one of the best Spanish firms in Corporate/M&A by Chambers & Partners, which points out in its publication that the firm “has vastly expanded corporate law capabilities through the absorption of the Madrid and Valencia teams of Olleros Abogados”, which “has experience in joint venture agreements between Spanish and international companies and on the sell side of inbound investments into Spanish companies. Also acts for US and German corporates looking to buy smaller Spanish businesses”.

In addition, Chambers & Partners also highlights the Dispute Resolution area of Andersen Tax & Legal in band 5, in which it positions, in band 3 of the ranking, the Managing Partner of the Litigation, Insolvency and Arbitration department in the Madrid and Valencia offices, Íñigo Rodríguez-Sastre, whose publication highlights include the following: "he handles diverse contentious matters ranging from product liability claims through to ICSID and ICC arbitration mandates". It also includes comments from interviewees during the research, highlighting that Rodriguez-Sastre is "analytical and methodical in his approach to complex legal issues" and "it is easy to work with him because he always keeps us informed about how things are going".

Chambers Europe 2018 also recognizes Alfredo Aspra in the Labour field in band 3 and highlights that the Managing Partner of the Labour department “is described by interviewees as an excellent negotiator and magnificent partner, with thorough knowledge and absolute availability”. The guide points out that Alfredo Aspra "assists with a range of employment matters, including collective and individual conflicts, with particular experience in collective redundancies and other labour aspects of corporate transactions".

Furthermore, Javier Mata is ranked for the fourth consecutive edition in Insolvency in band 4 and the guide underlines that the Partner at Andersen Tax & Legal “typically acts on behalf of insolvent entities in bankruptcy proceedings and offers additional expertise in contentious restructuring matters. One impressed client describes him as "a great strategist with deep technical knowledge, who is fundamental to our work”.

In the Tax area, the British guide includes the Partner Javier Vinuesa in band 4 and stresses that he is “well respected among peers and is widely considered an excellent addition to Andersen Tax & Legal's Madrid tax team” that he joined last October. Javier Vinuesa advises on the tax planning of cross-border M&A transactions on behalf of Spanish and international groups and interviewees highlight his "additional experience working with clients in the French market and his 'calm and common-sense' approach".

Chambers & Partners, which compiles its annual ranking of firms and lawyers based on the operations carried out during the previous year and the evaluations and analysis of the sector carried out by clients and professionals from different firms, includes the investigation carried out in 2017 in the Chambers Europe 2018, which publishes the ranking ranking of firms and lawyers in all the areas which the English publication addresses will be included.

Andersen Tax & Legal is the Spanish member firm of Andersen Global, an international association of legally separate, independent member firms comprised of tax and legal professionals around the world. Established in 2013 by U.S. member firm Andersen Tax LLC, Andersen Global now has more than 2,500 professionals worldwide and a presence in over 87 locations through its member firms and collaborating firms.
