A different approach

J. Almoguera Abogados is a boutique law firm established in 2013 by Jesús Almoguera – previously the Head of Corporate, Restructuring and Insolvency at Ashurst in Madrid between 2001 and 2013.

We provide our clients with excellent service and cutting-edge advice and have a core focus on complex transactions and commercial disputes.

We work with our clients to solve their problems and protect and grow their businesses by providing a distinctive and tailor-made approach with the direct involvement of highly senior lawyers.

Fundamental to this approach is the independence of J. Almoguera Abogados, which is free from the conflicts of interests. In addition, we invest extraordinarily in our know how and have a dedicated in-house know how expert, María Arpón de Mendívil who has an enormous experience as a transactional corporate finance lawyer.

Our boutique profile, emphasis on continuing development and deep know how mean that despite our compact size there is no compromise on quality – a fact recognized by our firm’s consistently high ranking by all the major international legal directories.
