Our Firm

Our commitment
"The client always comes first"

We are not (nor do we pretend to be) the largest law firm measured by the number of lawyers or offices. Our goal is pretty different: we want to be the firm of choice for clients with the most challenging and significant legal issues and transactions.

Our History

Founded in 1994 by Alejandro Fernández de Araoz and Pedro Rueda, Araoz & Rueda, currently at Paseo de la Castellana 164, is a leading Spanish independent firm with broad-based corporate and commercial practice and particular expertise and market recognition in M&A and Private Equity.

Our firm had its first corporate domicile at Paseo de la Castellana 53, where we stayed until 1996, year in which we moved to bigger offices at Paseo de la Castellana 15.

Coinciding with the sixth anniversary of our foundation, on January 24, 2000, we expanded our offices at Paseo de la Castellana 15, joining them to an adjacent office at Fernando el Santo 25.

Our firm kept on growing, which implied that our offices at Paseo de la Castellana and Fernando el Santo 25 were again too small. Thus, on November 29, 2002, we moved again to our current offices at Paseo de la Castellana 164.


It is clear to us that each client is an opportunity to show what we are made of and to gain their confidence. Since client satisfaction is our main objective, each and every client is treated as if they were the only one. We dedicate time and special effort to each of them in order to adjust and anticipate their needs, committing to optimise their interests and help them to achieve their business goals. That is the way we build a solid and long-term relationship.

The high level of partner involvement in all transactions and matters and the direct and personalised contact that this produces, allows us to ensure the excellence of our services. Our commitment is to a clear client-oriented approach and a consistent high quality in our services, without “peaks and valleys”. That is the reason we focus exclusively on those areas of practice in which we create value. We are passionate about our work…and it shows!


We treat each and every client as if we had no other
