The defence industry in Spain is a vibrant and dynamic sector. In response to the war in Ukraine, many European countries are increasing their defence budgets.

This sector, which plays a key role in Spain’s evolving economy, is growing through technological innovations and the strategic vision of government officials and arms companies.

One of the fundamental aspects of this sector, due to its unique nature, is that contracts are awarded through public tenders that are often not advertised. In this context, lawyers must have previous experience with cases of this nature to comply with the regulations in force while meeting the client’s needs.

ALEDRA represents and advises large companies in the defence sector in Spain. We are familiar with complex tenders, contracts with very high technical requirements in terms of engineering, and the services derived from these projects, such as labour arrangements for expatriate employees. And of course, all under the umbrella of strict confidentiality and data protection systems


  • Advice and support for the preparation and submission of bids in open tenders or negotiations, whether or not they are advertised.
  • Special resources in the area of public procurement.
  • Industry-specific procurement: distribution, agency, turnkey projects.
  • Labour advice for the provision of maintenance and engineering services with international aspects.
  • Risk management and prevention systems using ISO international standards.
  • Analysis of the applicable taxation in each case.
  • Protection of intangible assets.

Areas of practice


Public procurement is a fundamental pillar of this sector and one of the main areas of expertise of the ALEDRA team. Leave it to us: from preparing your bid to submitting it on the procurement platform. We’ll handle everything to ensure your peace of mind.


We can process the necessary permits for expatriate employees who come to Spain to develop and implement services associated with the supply or launch of engineering projects.


Sometimes the results of a competitive process are not as expected, or the tender procedure has not fully met the established requirements. In these cases, we are experts in special appeals with a very high success rate.

Fiscal and tax

Given the international nature of many of these operations, we analyse their tax impact before they are even carried out to guarantee their profitability.

Intellectual property

The defence sector is one of the pillars of research, innovation, and development, a generator of intangible assets that must be protected as well as transferred and sold in the market. The right advising is therefore key in this area.

Criminal and compliance

Since this sector is inextricably linked to the public sector, regulatory compliance programs are needed to guarantee that procurement with public administrations and large multinationals is possible, and above all, secure.
