MA Abogados was founded in Madrid in November 2011 as a project led by José María Michavila and Ángel Acebes, both former Ministers of Justice of Spain. The aim was to promote a law firm that, while having a wide presence in Spain, primarily consists of senior lawyers. To achieve this, several leading law firms in their respective cities were integrated, with Seville, Valencia, and Palma de Mallorca joining Madrid as founding partners. The project has grown in recent years, expanding its presence with the incorporation of new offices located in Bilbao, Salamanca, Vigo, and Marbella. In this way, MA Abogados offers national coverage across different branches of law, serving both small and medium-sized enterprises as well as large national and international companies.

Following the guiding principle of MA Abogados, we place the client at the center of everything we do, providing access to top professionals and delivering a personalized and high-quality service. Committed to our social responsibility, MA Abogados is the founding trustee of the recently established Pro Bono España Foundation.

The services provided by MA Abogados are based on the belief that our clients require the expertise of qualified firms, where top professionals will directly address their needs. At MA Abogados, we understand our clients' goals, challenges, and make their objectives our own.

Personalized Service:

MA Abogados builds its client relationships on personal trust and accessibility to professionals responsible for consultancy and business management. We consider it essential for lawyers to maintain a direct relationship with clients while providing legal services.
