About Us

MLAB Abogados is the leading Spanish law firm in European Union and competition law. The key to our success lies in specialisation and an unceasing search for excellence.

Since its foundation in 1985 by Santiago Martínez Lage «the father of antitrust law in Spain» (Chambers, 2017) and Rafael Allendesalazar, MLAB’s history has gone hand in hand with the development of both disciplines and their application in Spain.

Since 2017, our team is led by managing partners, Rafael Allendesalazar and Helmut Brokelmann, both of them recognised as leading practitioners in their practice areas in the most prestigious professional legal directories such as Chambers, Legal 500 or GCR. Among its team of lawyers, two partners with extensive experience win praise from clients: Mariarosaria Ganino and Alfonso Rincón. Prof. Juan José Montero Pascual, a specialist in regulatory law in areas such as telecommunications, transport and postal services, is Of Counsel to the firm.

We seek to fully understand the specific circumstances of each client with the aim of finding the best solution for their case, based on our experience.

With the best legal professionals and the requisite dedication in dealing with each case, in its more than 30 years, MLAB has won the trust and respect of the most important companies and institutions in a wide variety of sectors both in Spain and abroad.
