Our firm was born in 1986. That year, Spain and Portugal joined the EEC (European Economic Community), today known as the European Union, and Barcelona applied for the Olympic Games 1992. 1986 was also the year when the referendum regarding the stay in the NATO took place and when Felipe González was re-elected President of the Government.
This information may be considered trivial, but serves the purpose of a reminder of how the legal services were at that time. In those years, legal profession was handcrafted, rigid and totally focused on itself.
From the very beginning, in Ges40 we do not consider ourselves as a law firm to the use. On the contrary, we do consider ourselves a legal services firm. This has allowed us, throughout these 30 years, to consolidate a project which we wanted to be based on both continuous training and technology.
Our aim as always been to achieve the best levels of technological knowledge, providing a unique delivery thanks to our efficiency and effectiveness in giving response to our clients’ challenges. This efficiency would not have been successfully achieved without our technology and protocols, which we have been developing and adapting as we have been growing as an organization.
Later on, we decided to take a step further by taking our technical knowledge and experience to new heights with the vocation for being promoters of our clients’ businesses. Thus, in order to achieve our first aim, we decided to commit ourselves to the sectorial specialisation, which has allowed us to become a benchmark boutique for the bank entities, investment funds and insurance companies.
As far as our second goal is concerned, we opted for a cultural change: we moved from being legal or technical solvers to being boosters in all our actions of the consideration of ourselves as strategical partners of high added value in order to become indispensable.
