Andersen Tax & Legal opens an office in Seville to continue with its territorial expansion plan and incorporates José Manuel Pumar and Tomás Rivero as partners in the tax area to promote this location.

The firm, with offices in Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia, has thus added a new location in Spain, where it is developing a determined growth strategy, in which the Andalusian capital was a priority.

The team from Seville, led by partners José Manuel Pumar and Tomás Rivero and which will also have Carlos Soto as head of the Litigation area, has seven professionals and will provide advice in all areas of law through the firm that operates nationally and internationally.

The new partners have extensive knowledge of the Seville market and a great specialization in tax law.

Tomás Rivero holds a Law and Business Administration and Management degree from the Universidad Pablo de Olavide de Sevilla and a Master's Degree in Business Law from the Centro de Estudios Garrigues, and has extensive experience in restructuring operations, mainly in Sanguino y Asociados Abogados, where he was a partner, and in Garrigues. Carlos Soto also holds a Law Degree from the University of Seville and a Master's degree in Business Legal Consultancy from the Cajasol Institute of Legal and Business Studies. He has a long career in litigation and arbitration, having worked as a principal associate at Garrigues and as director of the legal department of the Restalia Group.

The managing partner of Andersen Tax & Legal in Spain, Jaime Olleros, stressed that the opening of an office in Seville is a key step in the growth plan developed by the firm in Spain, which allows it to expand its territorial coverage and continue to position itself in the domestic market. A growth strategy, he said, which has allowed for the incorporation of four new partners, bringing the total to 37, and more than 240 professionals.  

Along these lines, he has maintained that Seville is a strategic location for the firm and has added that the firm plans to strengthen its presence in the city by expanding its capacities in the coming months to respond to the needs of clients with a comprehensive and quality service.
