Top law firms by 2019 revenue in Catalonia

Cuatrecasas keeps leading the Catalonia-based law firms, followed by DWF-RCD, Roca Junyent, Baker McKenzie Barcelona and ETL Global

Now that 2020 is approaching its final stage, Iberian Lawyer wanted to know who the leading law firms by revenue are in Catalonia, which in the case of those included in this ranking, grew around a ten per cent in 2019 compared to 2018.

As expected, Cuatrecasas, the Catalonian law firm headquartered in Barcelona, wins this ranking with the first position since it consolidates its national revenue in its Catalonian office. We already knew by our national revenue ranking published last June that Cuatrecasas´ data shows a positive change of 13.72 per cent in its 2019 balance sheet.

DWF-RCD follows, with an annual rise of around 8 per cent. They were also included in the national ranking but, now we know, they hold the second position in the Catalonian legal market by revenue. The law firm counts with a team formed by 38 partners and 300 professionals in Spain.

With data retrieved from the Catalonian Mercantile Register, Roca Junyent is ranked third showing a positive change of 2.55 per cent. Founded in 1996, Roca Junyent is one of the leading Spanish law firms and has offices in Madrid, Barcelona and Girona, as well as associated offices in Palma de Mallorca, Lérida, Tarragona, Málaga, Seville, Bilbao, Burgos and Valladolid.

Right behind, number four, we find Baker McKenzie Barcelona with an increase of 5.62 per cent in the last fiscal year registered in the Catalonian Mercantile Register.

In the fifth position is ETL Global, that grew 13.35 per cent in 2019 compared to 2018. These data are just for the Legal services provided by the firm in Catalonia, excluding its audit and consultancy areas.

Mazars, with a positive change rate of 14.71 per cent corresponding to its invoicing of just its Legal services division, is ranked sixth. Mazars in Spain has more than 550 professionals and is present in 7 cities: Alicante, Barcelona, Bilbao, Madrid, Málaga, Valencia and Vigo.

Marimón Abogados is ranked behind, in the seventh position, with a positive growth rate of 13.33 per cent from 2018 to 2019. Marimón Abogados is a law firm oriented towards global business advice in all areas of Law. Its team includes 70 lawyers working in their three offices in Barcelona, Madrid and Seville.

Toda & Nel-lo maintains its revenue close to €8 million holding the eighth place of this ranking. Founded in 1992, Toda & Nel-lo is a multidisciplinary law firm specialized in legal advice and legal defence of companies and individuals, both in the public and private sectors. The law firm has 15 partners and 5 counsel/of counsel, and a team of around 30 lawyers, plus staff.

Fieldfiesher JAUSAS decreased its revenue a 5.81 per cent in 2019 compared to 2018, according to the data from the Mercantile Register. Since the integration into the leading European company Fieldfisher, JAUSAS was rebranded "Fieldfisher JAUSAS", but maintains its original registration name. JAUSAS was founded 52 years ago and since then its team has grown to the current 90 employees, including 14 partners and 60 lawyers based both in Barcelona and Madrid.

PONTI is ranked tenth in the table. According to the Mercantile Register, they had a negative rate last year of 5.37 per cent. PONTI is a law firm with 85 years of experience in the Industrial and Intellectual Property sector, specialising in advice, protection, defence and maintenance of trademarks, domains, patents, designs and utility models in any region of the world.

Number eleven in our ranking is AGM Abogados, a law firm that has been in the Spanish market for more than 30 years and has international offices in different continents. It is made up of a team of more than 100 professionals including lawyers, economists and support staff.

Twelfth is GRAU & ANGULO, which has a revenue of slightly over five and a half million with a minor decrease in 2019 compared to 2018 (3.28 per cent). GRAU & ANGULO is an Intellectual Property law firm founded in 2003 and specialising exclusively in defending its clients’ IP rights. It has ten partners, three of them women, around 20 associates (15 women) and three of counsel (two women).

Bufete Escura, Manubens Abogados, Pintó Ruiz & del Valle, ECIJA Barcelona, Moner Consulting, Grupo Gispert, Andersen in Barcelona, AddVANTE, Auren Barcelona and Durán-Sindreu complete the 22 top law firms list by revenue in Catalonia.

Note: Some law firms were not included in the ranking because they either declined to participate or did not have updated data in the Mercantile Register.
