Shared passion for people results in international collaboration

14th September 2023

Top 60 UK law firm Harrison Clark Rickerbys (HCR) and Spanish firm Tribeca have strengthened their longstanding relationship by announcing a collaboration, designed to meet the needs of their clients.

Both firms cite cultural and sector-specialist alignment as key factors, and a shared passion for people. The firms have a history of working together successfully – particularly with Tech sector businesses – and have supported several clients with international M&A and employment matters.  The collaboration will give Tribeca’s clients access to HCR’s full-service UK offering, and HCR’s clients access to Tribeca’s expertise and experience in Spain.

Rod Thomas, Managing Partner at HCR said: “This is an excellent opportunity for both firms who already have a history of working together supporting clients with their growth plans. For us it also enhances our offering to staff, with an increasing proportion of our work having an international element it is a great opportunity for our staff to have a more in depth understanding of our clients’ needs.”

As part of the collaboration, not only will Tribeca establish ‘boots on the ground’ within HCR’s international HQ at 62 Cornhill, London, HCR are seconding an experienced lawyer from their Cheltenham office to Tribeca. They will live in Madrid and be part of Tribeca’s team for six months. Both firms see this as just the beginning for their teams.

Juan Bezares, Partner at Tribeca said: “By growing our presence in London we’ll be able to work even more closely with HCR for the benefit of our clients and their M&A transactions. We’ll also be able to offer more services to our Spanish clients through HCR’s full-service practice. In addition, we’ll be able to support more UK businesses wanting to expand or do business in Spain, and also private individuals buying property or investing. We’re excited to take the next step on our journey together.”
