About the Office
Active in Spain for decades, Davis Polk established an office in Madrid in 2001 to better serve our extensive list of Spanish and international clients. Lawyers in our Madrid office work closely with their colleagues in New York, London and Sao Paulo across 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. We have long-standing relationships with many of Spain's leading companies, including Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria and Banco Santander (the two largest banks in Spain), Repsol YPF (Spain's largest oil company) and Telefónica (the largest Spanish company in terms of market capitalization). We represent our clients, as well as many of their Latin American subsidiaries and affiliates, in capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, joint venture, lending and project finance transactions in Spain, Latin America and throughout the world.
Furthermore, Davis Polk has been involved in most of the initial public offerings by Spanish companies since 2004. We have also advised on all SEC-registered debt and preference share offerings by Spanish issuers over the last six years.
