We DO offer a first-class service at a highly competitive price, giving advice to clients in a concise and straightforward way, identifying clear courses of action whatever the technical or legal complexities of the subject.

We take very seriously the fact that for a foreign investor, the dwelling is the most important investment of life and subsequently, that no one can infringe the peaceful right of enjoyment of the owner.

With the increasing longevity of the European population, ageing and quality of life are becoming increasingly fundamental to people’s thinking. We consequently advise individuals, entrepreneurs, small and mid-size business owners to support their long-term personal and business objectives by developing strategies to preserve their estates and ensure an efficient transition of their wealth to their beneficiaries.
A succession is said to be international from the moment that there is an element of foreignness connecting the succession to a foreign country. The deceased may be of English nationality and reside in Spain, where he possesses property.
Henceforth, the main question remains that of the applicable law. To that end, we must take into account the regulation of August 17, 2015 which standardizes the civil rules in matters of international succession. In short, these are complex situations where the use of a specialized lawyer is essential.
Likewise, whilst Spanish law dictates, to a large extent, what happens to a person’s assets when they die, it is still useful for there to be a Spanish Will which compliments any provisions you may have made in your home country. This simplifies the administration of the deceased’s Spanish estate and therefore reduces costs in the long run. Therefore, we are capable of giving accurate and relevant advice to all our clients as we are experts in areas relevant to older and vulnerable adults as well as traditional areas of law such as:
- Inheritance disputes and all kind of contentious probate cases
- Spanish Wills and divisions of Inheritances
- Specialized in complex Inheritances procedures regarding EU and also NON EU citizens, who might be the owners of properties or assets located in Spain at the moment of demise.

The role of a negotiating solicitor is to explore settlements which could never be achieved in a Court, to provide ideas for alternatively resolving the dispute which could not be enforced by any Court and to think laterally to promote investigation by the parties of other forms of settlement which they themselves have not contemplated.
Subsequently, in accordance with our commitment to resolving disputes before a trial, it is always our policy to enter into correspondence with the other party to give them a chance to negotiate a compromise to the dispute. If successful, such a compromise will save the parties time and money and will save the court the inconvenience of formally resolving the dispute. This is obviously a cost-cutting measure aimed to settle the dispute without recourse to litigation. Therefore, when negotiating, we have a proven track of success in reaching rewarding and fair “out of court settlements” for our clients. We know that not every dispute does, or should, go to trial. But if it does, you have to have confidence that you can win. We provide that confidence.

In fact, the eSports industry is an activity in full swing and very dynamic, which monopolizes more and more media focus. From the legal point of view, this means facing new challenges and it is therefore fundamental to master the particularities of this new industry: understand what videogame competitions are and who the main actors are. For example; the publisher, the promoter or organizers of videogame competitions, the sponsors, the betting houses or the eSports bars, the teams and of course the players. (French regulations, for example, define the professional videogame player as “a person who competes within the scope of an association or company authorized by the Digital Ministry in exchange for remuneration”). By way of example, we will say that the promoters are affected by a wide range of legal situations such as; obtain the permission of the publisher, establish the competition rules of the registered teams, commercialize the audiovisual rights on the tournament, look for sponsorships and guarantee the integrity of the competition, applying anti-doping measures and fixing the bets.
In short, – if you are any of the aforementioned actors, – take into account that you will receive the advice of a Law Firm specialized in this area of law, which will allow you to carry out your activity with due legal guarantees.
