The renowned law firms Pont Mestres, led by academician Joan Francesc Pont, and Coronas merge into Coronas Advocats
Joan Francesc Pont, renowned jurist, full academician of the Royal European Academy of Doctors-Barcelona 1914 (RAED) and president of its Social Sciences section, and Josep Maria Coronas, Spanish State lawyer, director of Abertis and secretary of the board of the La Caixa Banking Foundation, have led the merger of their professional offices -Pont Mestres and Coronas-, founded in Barcelona in the middle of the last century by their respective parents: Magín Pont and José María Coronas. From now on they will offer their services as Coronas Advocats.
The experience accumulated over more than 60 years of service and the bonds of friendship and cooperation between both offices make the merger easy and natural, maintaining the same atmosphere of occupation and concern for customers and their affairs and for the best way to resolve how many legal issues are of interest to the general public. Most especially, the Tax Law department has been reinforced by the sum of the two existing teams so far.
For Pont Mestres and for Coronas, fusion is the culmination of two parallel itineraries. Both have led the merger process, accepted unanimously by the set of partners of the new resulting firm. The decision made multiplies the operational capacity, as well as the talent integrated into the firm, producing a notable expansion of the areas developed by a team of more than 20 people. Coronas Advocats thus collects two legal traditions rooted in the city of Barcelona and open to the world.
