OUR FIRM

OUR FIRM

HISTORY

Our firm was born in 2016. The firm's three partners are lawyers with experience in national and international firms including Uría Menéndez, Clifford Chance and PwC. We are united by our passion for the law and by having crossed paths in the hallways of the courts and in the university classrooms where we have taught. We believe in individually tailored legal advice that builds trust between the client and their lawyer. We have been together for five years and during this time we have strengthened our relationships with businesspeople and individuals, who have become not just clients but friends. Our offices are located in Madrid at Calle Miguel Ángel (Michelangelo Street). A genius of the Renaissance humbly declared at the age of 87 after having reached artistic perfection: “Ancora imparo” (“Yet, I am learning”). From our offices in Spain we work with law firms in different countries. RTK Legal Abogados has always had an international reach.

“WHERE THE SEPARATION BETWEEN THEORY AND PRACTICE BECOMES AN ABSOLUTE ONE, THERE UNAVOIDABLY ARISES THE DANGER OF THEORY BEING DEGRADED TO A MERE SPORT, PRACTICE TO A MERE HANDICRAFT.”

ATTORNEY-CLIENT RELATIONSHIP

OUR VALUES

TRUST

The attorney-client relationship should be one based on trust. Trust is not given, it is earned over time. Trust is earned through professionalism, honesty, transparency and close relationships, without creating unnecessary expectations. If there is one trait that truly characterizes our firm, it is our commitment to building that trust through integrity, close relationships and the search for mutual benefit.

“If you have won your client's trust, you are no longer their lawyer. You are their counsel.”

– Francisco Redondo –

TRANSPARENCIA

“¿La mejor cualidad de un abogado, además de su preparación? Decir siempre la verdad al cliente. La honestidad y la sinceridad es lo más importante”

– Juan Tassara –

El lenguaje jurídico es complejo y puede convertirse en una barrera entre cliente y abogado. Hemos trabajado durante años en el mundo de la empresa y entendemos en lenguaje de los negocios. Pero nos esforzamos cada día por ser claros y transparentes con el cliente. Nuestra vocación académica nos ayuda a tratar de hacer comprensibles las soluciones complejas que estamos acostumbrados a abordar.

“What is the best quality in a lawyer, apart from his background and training? Always being truthful with the client. Honesty and sincerity are the most important qualities.”

– Juan Tassara –

TRANSPARENCY

Legal language is complex and can become a barrier in the lawyer-client relationship. We have been working in the corporate world for years and we understand the language of business. Yet we always strive to be clear and transparent with the client. Our academic vocation helps us to make the complex solutions that we are used to managing easily understandable.

EXPERIENCE

We believe in the value of experience. The practice of law has enriched us personally and professionally over the years and is the main added value that we can bring to the client. We are passionate about training future lawyers in the classroom, but our firm is made up exclusively of the most experienced partners, working in close collaboration with our clients.

“We really like the idea of scribe advocacy. Take the issues, study them, and work very closely with the client.”

– Francisco Redondo –

“We like to always be one step ahead. Our experience in large law firms gives us a work methodology that allows us to be fast, useful and efficient and thus be able to have and share with the client a strategic approach: we know where the client wants to go.”

– Álvaro Klecker –

TEMPERANCE

We are innovative in our solutions. We will fight to the end for our client. The high national and international courts where we have litigated know this. But we also firmly believe in arbitration and the search for fair and effective compromises that can save our clients time and money. Our arbitration experience is recognized internationally.

MODERACIÓN

“Nos gusta ir siempre un paso por delante. Nuestra experiencia en grandes despachos nos aporta una metodología de trabajo que nos permite ser rápidos, útiles y eficaces y así poder tener y compartir con el cliente una visión estratégica: sabemos a dónde quiere llegar el cliente”

– Álvaro Klecker –

Somos innovadores en nuestras soluciones. Vamos con nuestro cliente hasta el final. Lo saben los altos tribunales nacionales e internacionales donde hemos litigado. Pero creemos profundamente en el arbitraje y en la búsqueda de compromisos que sean eficaces y justos para ahorrar costes y tiempo a nuestros clientes. Nuestra experiencia en arbitraje es reconocida internacionalmente.
