We offer our clients a comprehensive range of legal services. This offering is not arbitrary; rather, it is the product of experience. Indeed, all the areas in which we operate are somehow interconnected and working on a given area often implies dealing with the others as well. Over the years, we have been adding each one of them to our service offering as we went along.
Not only did we gather the expertise, we have also accumulated key contacts in the different fields and perfected the process of delivering them, because it is not only about the law, but also about how it is applied and the people involved in its application. Just knowing the books simply won’t do.
Our manner of working is very hands on and personal. Imparting information is important, but so is guidance and working together. We listen to you and we think. Then we give you advice, and we work with you closely to help you hit your goals every time.
We take responsibility for our actions, but also for how looked after and protected you feel throughout. And this is not a marketing line, our established reputations and business very much depend on it.
Property & Land Law:
Real Estate is one of the main drivers of Mallorca’s and Ibiza's economy, and property is the most widely-owned asset. With its pristine environment, easy reach from most of Europe’s urban centers, capacity for growth and development and very low crime rate, Mallorca and Ibiza are a safe environment for an investment in real estate or for residency. With our local experience and technical ability, we have handled some of the most complex property transactions on the island.
Our conveyancing service, truly unique, takes the buyer in an easy manner through all the steps necessary to achieve a thorough and trouble free transaction.

We listen, we think and we plan. Then we give you our advice, and we listen some more.
Inheritance Tax liabilities and the transmission of assets.

Family law is notoriously sensitive and it is critical to the outcome that the approach is personal: only then can we be aware of what it is that matters most to you, as well as learning about the personalities and issues involved in the particular case.
Divorce proceedings and nullity.
The aim is of course always to not litigate, and indeed most cases end up being negotiated. But to reach the negotiating table, and to negotiate favourably, the groundwork has to be done correctly. We represent our clients’ interests as if they were our own, because they are.
Tourism and its tributary industries represent 90% of the Balearic Islands GDP, so almost anything which happens in Mallorca and Ibiza has something to do with it. It is therefore unthinkable not to develop an interest and a focus in the key elements of touristic laws and regulations.
