Landwell has taken over a 12-lawyer tax and law firm in Alicante, which boasts the European Office of Trademarks and Patents as one of its clients
In the same way as Landwell's Spanish operation, two-partner Corno & Cardona is a multidisciplinary partnership, and specialises in civil and administrative law and tax. Name partner Luis Corno Caparros is an expert in government and administrative law. The other name partner, Pablo Cardona Martin, is an economist and a state tax inspector. According to Landwell's Spanish managing partner Siro Arias, the multidisciplinary nature of Corno & Cardona made it a perfect fit with the larger firm. "The idea behind the merger was to attack the markets of administrative law and tax," he said.
