MA Abogados was born in Madrid, in November 2011, as a project led by José  María Michavila and Ángel Acebes with the aim of promoting a law firm that, having a wide presence in the Spanish geography, has a majority of “senior” lawyers.

With this objective, several law firms of reference in their respective cities were integrated, being Seville, Valencia and Palma de Mallorca, the founding partners together with Madrid. The project was expanding its presence with the incorporation of offices located in Bilbao, Salamanca and Vigo.

In this way, MA Abogados offers national coverage in the different branches of law, both to small and medium-sized companies as well as to large companies, both nationally and internationally, offering a close quality service.
