RCD, start-up’s best rated law firm for third year

The firm leads the ranking published by El Referente on law firms specialised in entrepreneurial projects. RCD already triumphed in the two first editions of the list, in 2017 and 2019

El Referente, a publication dedicated to the start-up world in Spain, has published the results of a new edition of their Ranking of the best law firms for start-ups. The ranking, which demonstrates a deep analysis of the most distinguished law firms operating in the Spanish market, has brought to light the role of leadership that RCD plays in advising on projects of entrepreneurship. It should be noted that the firm has been successful in all three editions of the rankings (2017, 2019 and 2020), in which it has consistently been recognised by start-ups as the indisputable leader.

The ranking collects votes from more than 100 start-ups, investment funds, business angels, hubs, incubators and other representatives of the start-up environment from all over Spain. Once again, these results highlight the position, career path and expertise of RCD in accompanying innovative projects, as well as the service offered and its role as a strategic partner for start-ups.

The firm is a trailblazer in Spain by having created the first practice area completely focused on innovation and entrepreneurial projects. Today, the company is the main advisor for innovative initiatives, with experience in more than 1,000 projects and one of the biggest teams in Europe specialised in this type of legal advice, made up of more than 50 professionals dedicated exclusively to this practice.

The results of El Referente join a line of other acknowledgements of the firm received recently. The firm has been nominated in 4 categories of the Expansión Jurídico Awards (which are expected to take place in September) as one of the best law firms in digital economy, health sciences and insurance as well as the category of having advised on the innovative project. It should also be noted that the firm was chosen as one of the 10 most innovative law firms in continental Europe by the Financial Times in their ranking FT – Innovative Lawyers. Additionally, it is one of the most active advisors in venture capital operations.
