About the Office

We have a first-class practice and team with an excellent track record advising on groundbreaking securities offerings and complex mergers and acquisitions for the region’s leading companies and financial institutions.

The highly skilled lawyers in our Madrid office work closely with colleagues throughout Europe, North and South America and Asia on the full spectrum of corporate transactions involving Spanish and Latin American companies.

Davis Polk represents every Spanish company listed on the New York Stock Exchange, and we have long-standing relationships with leading Spanish companies including Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria and Banco Santander (the two largest Spanish banks), Endesa (a leading utility company) and Telefónica (one of the largest Spanish companies in terms of market capitalization). We represent these clients, as well as many of their Latin American subsidiaries and affiliates and major international investment banks, in capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and lending and project finance transactions in Spain, Latin America and throughout the world.

Our team has been involved in most of the initial public offerings and nearly all of the SEC-registered transactions by Spanish companies over the past 15 years. We have also advised on over $67 billion in senior debt offerings by Spanish issuers since 2006.

Our Madrid-based team regularly provides advice to our corporate and financial institutions clients on a wide range of debt and equity offerings, including IPOs, rights offerings, convertible offerings, investment-grade and high-yield notes offerings and hybrid securities offerings. Our team also regularly advises leading Spanish companies on their international M&A matters.
