Madrid 2020: It wasn’t to be
The 2020 Olympic Games will be held in Tokyo and not Madrid. Despite this, we would like to extend our congratulations to all those involved in the Madrid 2020 bid for the outstanding work, effort and enthusiasm devoted to the project from start to finish.
For all of us here at Garrigues it has been a privilege and a source of tremendous satisfaction to have worked alongside Madrid 2020 on the preparation of the candidature file and all of the tax and legal matters in a bid to ensure the Games are held within the appropriate tax and legal framework, as well as to guarantee legal certainty for all those taking part in this global event.
Even though Madrid ultimately fell at the final hurdle, the Olympic spirit that has brought an entire country together will linger long in the memory and inspire and motivate us all going forward.
