San Simón & Duch is the result of a project devised by renowned
professionals who seek to adapt to the changes in the market. In 2001, Luis de San Simón and Mercedes Duch founded San
Simón & Duch, an innovative law firm committed to keep providing their already consolidated professional services and
to make every effort to satisfy and meet their clients’ needs.

Since its very foundation, starting with the opening of the Madrid office, the philosophy of the law firm has
responded to the same values their partners had already put into practice throughout the years: excellence in work and
customised services. With this in mind and for the purpose of fulfilling the needs of their clients, San Simón & Duch
opened its offices in Sevilla (2004), Cádiz (2005) and Bilbao (2007).

In 2011, due to its continuous growth due to market needs, but also following the specific request of their clients,
the Madrid office expanded and so they were forced to refurbish their facilities. The expansion of the law firm
concluded with the opening of the San Simón & Duch office in Valencia in 2012.

The background of San Simón & Duch has always been linked to the personal project devised by its associates, based on
effort, hard work and customised services. These are the values that have allowed them to gain the trust of both
national and international clients in the most relevant matters.


San Simón & Duch is involved in projects and events that allow us to be aware of what happens on the sectors the law
firm specialises in at all times. Besides, we also take an active part in their development.

The International Law Seminar is one of these projects. This event
is held once a year in London since 2006 with the aim of performing an in-depth analysis of the various concerns of
the maritime industry and international trade.

Besides, professionals at San Simón & Duch are also members of the most representative associations on Maritime Law,
Insurance Law and Transport Law, where they play an important role. Among these associations, it is worth noting
