At López-Ibor Abogados we specialize in business law. With more than 20 years’ experience, we have positioned ourselves as a leading firm both nationally and internationally.

López-Ibor has offices in Madrid and Valencia, as well as a wide network of Best Friends at national and international level. We have a multidisciplinary team of more than 40 lawyers with a strong international profile, great experience in their areas of specialization and knowledge of the different sectors in which we work.

Corporate social responsibility
We are firmly committed to being a socially responsible company. It is a long-term strategy, a culture that permeates the entire firm and which aims not only to serve society, but also to improve the lives of our lawyers. Part of the actions we carry out are pro bono work, providing free advice to facilitate access to justice and give voice to those who do not have one. But these are not the only actions that we take; we also focus on the training of our professionals through awareness-raising sessions, and we sponsor charity activities and events.

Part of our corporate philosophy and CSR policies is to identify the impact that we may have on the environment in order to prevent it and mitigate its possible consequences, applying environmental criteria in all planning and decision-making processes in matters that affect the environment.
