Founder & Head of Corporate Law

Corporate Lawyers

Our team of corporate lawyers will collaborate with you to start, develop and organize your company in Spain. From the milestone of opening your first business, to deciding on the name of your company in Spain, or even acquiring an existing company, we can help.

​Being a lawyer I believe that its one of the greatest feelings to be able to help foreign businesses to establish their activity in Spain – providing tailored advice and ongoing legal assistance for their Spanish operations.​
