There are plenty of lawyers here in Spain, put simply like when you hire any other professional you instruct them to act for you. Your Spanish solicitor has an ethical duty to act for you only when you for example buy a property in Spain or when you apply for a non lucrative visa to come to live in Spain.
I was a little disturbed when I saw this post on the net. You don’t want to instruct an in house lawyer. They describe the lawyer as ‘our lawyer’, if that’s the case who is the lawyer really acting for?
The same goes for offers of lawyer’s fees included. Does this mean that you have to have the in house lawyer act for you?
Make sure you choose your own independent lawyer and avoid any conflicts of interest or potential conflicts of interest.
At Just Law Solicitors we’ve been advising clients for 31 years and I myself have been a lawyer for 35 years. Of course we would appreciate your business if you are looking to buy a property in Spain or apply for a visa. Whichever lawyer you choose make sure they are independent and get their bar registration number.
At Just Law Solicitors all of our lawyers are registered at the Malaga Bar Association. We can, of course, help with a Spanish work visa and any other visa such as the non-lucrative visa (NLV), the golden visa, and registering as self-employed known as ‘autonomo’ here in Spain. We can also assist with the new digital nomad visa here in Spain, so you can work from home in Spain.
If you plan on buying a property here in Spain, we can help you with the whole process but it’s important not to sign or pay anything until you’ve had advice from us. We can assist with the non lucrative visa ‘NLV’ and opening a Spanish bank account.
If you are thinking about moving to Spain, contact us so we can give you the proper advice according to your circumstances. We are Spanish qualified and registered lawyers at the Bar Association.
We are also proud to have a tax department with a Spanish qualified tax advisor and accountant formerly of Price Waterhouse and KPMG.
We also have a family law department. Sometimes it’s more beneficial for one party to get divorced here in Spain as opposed to for example the United Kingdom. We can also advise on custody and child maintenance here in Spain.
A Spanish will is recommended to properly deal with international jurisdiction and taxes.
