Our touch

Arizon gathers a leading set of proffesionals in the commodity, shipping, insurance, labour, criminal and commercial law markets in Spain under the leadership of Dr. Felipe Arizon. They are all well experienced with multi-disciplinary backgrounds, qualified to act before all courts and tribunals within the Spanish territory, including Balearics and Canary Isles.

Arizon has ist main presence in Spain with offices staffed in Jerez de la Frontera and Málaga. We also have a desk in Madrid for the agri and trade business; this infrastructure allows the firm to assist clients across different sectors and be in close contact with them. In addition, our law firm follows an e-file policy enabling all the lawyers to work from any place in the world with our Apple and software equipments.

In addition to our offices in Jerez and Málaga, and the desk in Madrid, our frequent trips to the City of London permits us to be in touch with the world top market of shipping and trade. We are members to several London arbitration bodies and assist seminars in the City, or elsewhere, whenever the subject is of interest to our practice.

At Arizon we are determined to defend our clients' interests. Our firm's policy is known to be that we go the extra mile to defend our clients’ interests. This is reflected in our daily work in a two folded way; in the firm's practice, our dedication and commitment to clients make us hold at all times an emergency team to assist admiralty cases; furthermore we are very proud to hold an unrivaled success rate for plaintiffs' claims before the Spanish Courts. From the pure legal thinking, our spirit to approach each case is best defined by the quote of Lord Denning in Packer v. Packer:

"What is the argument on the other side? Only this, that no case has been found in which it has been done before. That argument does not appeal to me in the least. If we never do anything which has not been done before, we shall never get anywhere. The law will stand whilst the rest of the world goes on; and that will be bad for both."[1953] 2 AER l27.

We are dedicated to provide the best legal services to our clients and strictly adhere to professional rules.
