Abogados within Lucas&Asociados work closely with their team of economists and business&tax consultants in order to gain an in-depth knowledge of the businesses of their clients, of the key industries in which they operate and their business practices in the relevant jurisdiction.
Lucas&Asociados possesses a broad advisory, operational and advocacy capability and an extensive international reach thanks to a right mix of offices, partnerships and alliances across the EMEA and Latin American regions, offering seamlessly a full range of multi-disciplinary and cross-border business and legal services to its clients.
Lucas&Asociados aims at providing international corporate clients with a full range of legal and business services that meet their needs and supports their strategy of establishing themselves or consolidating their presence in Spain. Furthermore, Lucas&Asociados aspires to support the outsourcing and internationalisation efforts of each and every one of its local corporate clients.
Lucas&Asociados‘s private client team prides itself on providing first-class, high-quality legal and business services, plus a wide range of additional bespoke services, to meet its client’s specific needs. Our firm stands out for delivering, -of course, in the mother tongue of the client-, the highest standard of client service in each and every transaction.
Client service is at the core of the firm’s values, which is based on the belief that each client and their instructions are unique. This belief has been nurtured and developed since the firm’s founding, therefore enabling the development of strong long-lasting client relationships.
In Lucas&Asociados we believe in the importance of being at the centre of events and to be at the forefront of developments in order to be able to anticipate and be active part of change.

Lucas&Asociados has long been committed to social, legal, and economic research, its professionals being members of a diverse group of multi-disciplinary jurists and of sectorial research committees at a local, national and international level.
Lucas&Asociados is also well-known for its passion for education and, as a result, the firm regularly organises various types of events aimed at educating clients, peers, academics and students, the business community and society as a whole.

technical expertise & exceptional professionalism
Lucas&Asociados professionals are proactive, dynamic, creative and highly experienced, providing their corporate clients with a full range of legal and business services in all aspects of corporate law and other areas of international business and their select private clientele with personalised advisory and advocacy services.
Lucas&Asociados, as part of its commitment to innovation and excellence, further reinforces its own in-house teams of leading professionals with the support of: (i) a superb “on demand” team of first rated lawyers and business and tax advisers that integrates seamlessly into the different multi-disciplinary teams and working groups of the firm; (ii) an outstanding academic board, which provides depth to the legal analysis in cases of extreme complexity and that designs, leads and supervises its own in-house CPD scheme; (iii) a highly skilled and experimented advisory board that enables its professionals to understand first-hand industry’s present trends and future developments and hence to foresee and cater ahead of any change in the different economic sectors in which our clients operate.
Corporate Social Responsibility
Social Responsibility has been at the heart of the firm’s corporate values since its very inception.
Lucas&Asociados has led the responsibility revolution in Andalusia, having had a long-standing involvement in CSR activities, historically focused on providing pro-bono legal advice.
Lucas&Asociados’s current CSR programme [2020-2025] aims at making a difference in the communities where its professionals and clients work and live, focusing on the provision of access to justice, education and finance, with a combination of pro-bono legal work, hands-on volunteering and financial contributions.
Lucas&Asociados has a long-standing framework agreement in place with ASALER* (Asociación Almeriense de Emigrantes Retornados) by which the firm puts its technical skills and experience at the service of all of its members.
*ASALER is a non-for-profit organisation, founded in 1999, aimed at supporting returned emigrants and their families. It is the largest organisation in Almeria, with over 3,500 members and together with other local and regional charities of its kind it is organised under a national umbrella federation that brings together more than 50,000 members.
Our firm provided key legal advice and support to ASALER in their campaign against the government’s decision to use new data -surfaced after cross-border collaboration with other EU tax authorities- to unfairly enforce a to-this-date non-applied tax regulation, originating an inquisitorial and discriminating prosecution of a collective of more than one million Spanish pensioners returned from a life-long working-exile abroad.
