‘Garrido’s advisers base their projects on trust with the client, availability, efficiency and transparency regarding fees. From my point of view, they do not understand their business as a mere provision of services, but rather they aspire to be the partner of the clients, making the problems their own and growing together with a continuous relationship based on mutual trust.’

‘For me, they are the best I have seen in litigation and inspections. They are brutal. They are also very good in all kinds of tax issues, with professionals exceptionally prepared in VAT, personal income tax, restructuring and others, but their best point is that you know that from their hand in inspections the chances of winning are increased.’

‘Availability, transparency, knowledge of all subjects, efficiency in the results. They are very decisive.’

‘I would highlight Francisco Conde, for his closeness, clarity and knowledge.’

‘Analysis of the multiple implications of the function; beyond the scope of the task, they carry out planning to optimize all facets of each performance.’

‘They get involved in knowing the needs that we have and they expose all the pros and cons of the operations. They analyze all the needs both corporate and family.’

‘Francisco Conde has great theoretical knowledge of tax practice, and knows how to take that knowledge to the practical part and execute it.’

‘I would highlight Francisco Conde, in my opinion probably the best in Spain in inspections; he knows them all and has an exceptional relationship with the Administration. His knowledge of tax is broad and complete and he is a great professional. Raúl de Francisco and Eva Martín: The stars of litigation. Very good at preparing documents before any court, they handle the procedures like no one else.’
