Pintó Ruiz & Del Valle:
Pintó Ruiz & Del Valle, Lawyers and Economists, was born from the merger, in 1999, of two of the oldest, most prestigious law firms in Spain, Bufete Pintó Ruiz and Del Valle Abogados (founded in 1903 and 1910 respectively). Both of them brought into the new firm a highly-specialised profile and their considerable prestige in the practice of Law, thus enabling us to meet our clientele’s ever-growing requirement for the provision of fully comprehensive legal services.
The firm currently consists of more than sixty lawyers distributed in the offices of Madrid, Barcelona, Palma de Mallorca and Alicante.
Pintó Ruiz & Del Valle offers counselling, both in Spain and also internationally, in every field of the legal practice, such as civil, corporate, tax, sport, criminal, litigation, arbitration, procedural, labour, industrial and intellectual rights, and maritime Law, including logistics and transport.
