With over 70 years’ experience Grupo Gispert is a leading Barcelona based company that provides high added-value legal and economic services. Its customers are modern companies requiring qualified specialists and impeccable service. The firm is discerning, efficient and professional, and provides a service that covers the global needs of its customers.
Main Areas of Practice:
Insolvency, Restructuring & Bankruptcy:
When insolvency is unavoidable, the support of a specialised team should be sought. Today, having a good lawyer is not enough, since the complexity involved in new insolvency processes requires a multi-disciplinary team that can cover both legal and economic aspects. This team should have proven experience in insolvency, a global perspective, the ability to manage companies in crisis and negotiating skills. Prevention, specialisation and a multidisciplinary team are the differentiating factors in Grupo Gispert insolvency services. Their lawyers and economists are regularly designated by the courts as liquidators in insolvency proceedings. Its experience as liquidators in insolvency proceedings and its team, allows the firm to take a global perspective. Grupo Gispert is different because it offers services that cover the various aspects of pre-insolvency and insolvency in relation to legal, financial and mediation needs. These services include: pre-insolvency audit, business restructuring, negotiation and prior labour force adjustment plans (LFAP) processing, negotiation with creditors, processing insolvencies and legal representation and defence of directors.
Grupo Gispert has been a reputed firm specialising in Corporate Law for more than 70 years. It provides a service that goes beyond the classic commercial firms because it offers a consultant’s perspective which covers the legal, economic and taxation aspects of a company. Services include: due diligence, restructuring, business sale and purchase, mergers and divisions, comprehensive legal and tax consultancy, preparing and holding General Meetings and Councils.
The reputation of Grupo Gispert as one of the leading civil law firms in Barcelona can be traced back to the 1940s. Nowadays, a modern perspective on civil law needs to be complemented by in-depth knowledge about taxation. This comprehensive perspective is what distinguishes the service offered by the firm, providing guidance on: probate planning, family business protocols, lawsuits, family mediation, negotiation and contracts between companies and individuals
Human Resources departments need consultants who are always up-to-date and who offer an agile service with full availability. As well as being available and agile, Grupo Gispert employment law specialists offer excellent technical abilities and proven experience in the following areas: labour force adjustment plans (LFAP) and collective negotiation (with and without creditors’ meetings), employment disputes, comprehensive legal advice for the HR department, top management contracts, mediation, employment audits and risk prevention guidance.
