How We Work
Our approach is to designate team members (an English speaking Account Manager (Director level), a Spanish Lawyer and a Legal Executive) to a new client who will then work with the client through to closure.
This gives continuity and allows us to fully understand and implement our clients requirements, building a relationship that allows communication to flow and actions to be clear.
Costs and Fees
If there’s a lawyer involved then you’ve probably got enough to worry about without our charges adding to your concerns.
That’s why we operate a fixed fee schedule with all costs agreed in advance – so there’s no nasty surprises or unexpected costs on completion.
We operate independently from estate agents and unlike some other lawyers do not offer financial inducements to real estate agents for introductions. Our company stands and falls on the quality of the work and the advice we provide.
“Our main source of business is previous clients recommending us to their friends and I really believe that this is because we make sure that we place our clients interests above all else.” Helen Brasington
We use the Spanish government’s latest online services, electronic signatures and electronic file transfers to deliver a faster resolution and reduced costs to our clients.
Discretion and Confidentiality
We take your personal data protection and privacy very seriously. Our client list contains many high profile celebrities, sports professionals and business leaders so we are familiar with the requirement for absolute confidentiality and data protection.
THAT’S ENOUGH ABOUT US
