Special Report: Iberia

The strength of the euro and the creeping onset of the economic downturn is helping Iberian companies broaden their global operations – with notable success.

This Iberia Special Report looks at how law firms have already benefited from international growth and will benefit further from outside investment into the region.

The first report looks at how consolidation of Spain’s major businesses across all markets, along with the threat of a recession, has enabled law firms to play a leading role in helping Latin American companies extend their revenue bases.

The second report looks at the opportunities in Portugal, where a slower economy has helped protect the country’s businesses against the swing in deal activity affecting its Continental peers.

The launch of Portugal’s first-ever PPP and a busy public sector industry –including road and rail developments – have also helped infrastructure specialists ply their trade overseas on some of the word’s biggest building projects.
