“Both our firm and Client were entirely satisfied.”
Our firm was tasked with defending an action brought by a Spanish exporter against our US client. Mr. Plehn defended our client before the courts of Spain on this matter which was both procedurally complex and important to our client. Based on a convincing defense, Steve obtained a very satisfactory settlement. He provided clear and accurate advice, excellent legal work, performed on a short time-table, all at a reasonable price and concluded with no loose ends. Both our firm and client were entirely satisfied. We would gladly bring further matters to Plehn Abogados.

"A combination of technical competence, practicality and foresightedness."
"I have worked with Steven Plehn on numerous matters including, amongst others, company acquisitions, infrastructure projects and litigation. I have also worked with other top law firms in Spain and I can say, without reserve that, in his practice areas, he is on a par with all of them for quality legal representation. Moreover, I have found his attention more personalized and his rates more competitive. Since my retirement, I continue to consult Steven on my own personal business matters and always find his advice to be a combination of technical competence, practicality and foresightedness."
Pablo Calvo – Former President Motorola Spain and previously Business Vice President Alcatel Alsthom Spain.
"I cannot recommend him enough"
"Steven Plehn represented a high-profile client of ours in the negotiation of a multi-year contract for a Spanish language TV series in Latin America. The operator was a major international player and we were hard-pressed to negotiate, much less understand, its complicated and demanding standard conditions. I can say, without hesitation, that Steven’s understanding of the contractual ins and outs, plus his attention to detail, allowed us to secure a vastly improved deal for our client. We had to spend a number of late evenings working on the deal, but he was there at all times providing full support, even with a sense of humor! I cannot recommend him enough."
Sheri Sairafain – President Sairafain Management
"His work was extraordinary, we will not hesitate to use his firm again"
"After commencing arbitration proceedings, Steven guided us through a complicated process with the right combination of both hard and soft approaches with our adversary in order to achieve a favorable settlement. His knowledge of the Spanish legal system along with his knowledge of other countries’ legal systems (in our case, the United States), allowed him to counsel us effectively and maximize our settlement."
Steven N. Gabelman – President Chemfoam International
"American-style service in a Spanish and international context."
"I wholeheartedly recommend the services of Steven Plehn and his firm. I have worked with him in a variety of areas over the years, including mergers and acquisitions, commercial contracting and litigation. He is a superb professional who goes right to the point and quickly grasps both the business and legal issues. He is supported by a solid team and provides an American-style service in an international context at what I consider to be very reasonable fees."

“They did a terrific job.”
Plehn Abogados represented us in the settlement of my brother’s estate in Spain. In addition to probate, the firm also carried out the sale of real estate and worked out a rather complicated settlement with the Spanish tax authorities. I received regular progress reports and the entire matter was concluded seamlessly notwithstanding the hurdles. They did a terrific job.

"Excelentes cualidades profesionales."
"Steven nos representó y nos sigue representado en varios asuntos litigiosos. Hemos ganado cada uno de ellos, tanto en primera instancia como en apelación, así que poco más puedo decir salvo que, además de sus excelentes cualidades profesionales, es siempre un placer trabajar con él."
Consejero Delegado, Spanish company dedicated to online learning
"Skilled, hard working and pragmatic."
"Steve, is a very skilled, hard working and pragmatic lawyer who provides excellent advice based on years of experience. He understands the issues faced by clients and is able to devise intelligent problem-solving solutions which get the deal done. Steve is a lawyer at the top of his game and a huge asset to any deal."
Graham Reddel, General Counsel, Poyry Energy AG, Finish energy and engineering company
"Effective solutions."
"I worked with Steven across the table during a complicated telecoms project negotiation. As an “adversary” one sees qualities that often are not visible when negotiating on the same side. I have only the highest recommendations for his work, his integrity and his ability to go right to the core of issues and find effective solutions."
