Presentation

MENÉNDEZ & ASOCIADOS ABOGADOS is a law firm opened in 1996, based in Barcelona and which works exclusively in administrative, environmental and urban development law.

What we offer and to whom

Our clients are private companies and public authorities (including regional and local public enterprises) to which we offer services of legal advice. These consist of the issuing of opinions and reports, drafting contracts and agreements, monitoring of public authority procedures, including internal reviews, appeals to the administrative law courts and handling criminal proceedings for environmental offences. In addition to this we also draw up draft regulations (laws, decrees and local by-laws) for public authorities.

The main areas in which our clients operate are: water supply and sanitation, waste management, electricity generation and distribution, the chemical and pharmaceutical, paper, food, textile and construction industries, and public works.

With who

Given the areas we specialise in, we are used to working with interdisciplinary teams (consisting of engineers, architects, biologists, economists, etc.), and to coordinating their input. Thus if the handling of the case makes it necessary - and depending on the client’s wishes - we can arrange contacts with a wide number of companies and professionals of recognised ability and with whom we work on a regular basis.

Moreover, Menéndez & Abogados Asociados has signed a collaboration agreement with the mexican law firm Celis Aguilar Álvarez & Asociados. Thanks to it our clients will have the opportunity, if required, of a legal advice in public and environmental mexican law.
