I am an independent British and Spanish Lawyer working in the UK and Spain. I am a Spanish Lawyer or Abogado, which is similar to a Solicitor in the UK. An Abogado is a highly qualified Spanish Lawyer.
I practice Spanish Law from my base here in the UK. I am based in Liverpool but can deal with clients from anywhere in the UK or Spain. I also collaborate quite closely with a Spanish Barrister, Pedro J. Padilla and can therefore provide coverage across the whole of the Spanish Court system, including mainland Spain, the Canary Islands and the Balearic Islands.
I provide the services of a qualified Spanish Lawyer, registered as a European Lawyer (REL) with the Solicitors Regulation Authority, and the necessary Notarial support and assistance, without you having to travel to Spain personally or authorise a Spanish law practice to deal with your business.
I am also registered with the British and Spanish Law Association. I am the Honorary Consul of Spain in Liverpool since 2011 and I am listed by the Spanish Consulate in Edinburgh as a recommended Lawyer and I am a member of the Bar Association of Granada.
I graduated as a Lawyer from the University of Navarra, Pamplona, Spain, 1994-1998. I obtained my Master´s degree in Town Planning in 2004.
Besides this I have a high level of experience on litigious issues, town planning, real estate, inheritance dealing with spanish estates and commercial, among others areas of law. I have been a Lawyer of the Andalusian Board of Architects for more than five years, advising Spanish and English clients about investments, contracts, wills and power of attorneys from England and Spain.
I regularly visit Spain to carry out legal work on behalf of English and Spanish clients and can represent clients in the Spanish Courts when required. I believe that trust is central to a good client-lawyer relationship and take care to keep my clients fully informed at all times, ensuring a quick and effective response to your needs.
