If you will be moving or have recently moved here, finding English-speaking lawyers in Spain should be one of your first steps to ensure that everything goes smoothly. Bureaucracy and paperwork can be a time-consuming challenge to work through, and trying to take care of everything on your own sometimes feels like you’re running in circles. Granting power of attorney to your lawyers allows you to focus on more important things (this is especially true for business owners looking to set up a company in Spain).

Whether you need an immigration lawyer in Spain to get you settled into your new life here, a Spanish property lawyer or a family lawyer, the attorneys at Henry Towers can provide all the legal assistance you need in the language you are most comfortable in—English.

English-speaking immigration lawyers in Spain

Moving to Spain legally requires you to go through a lot of procedures and paperwork, all of which will go much faster with the help of an immigration lawyer in Spain. Henry Towers can help you arrange the necessary visas and work permits (if applicable) depending on your personal circumstances. Once you have entered the country, your lawyers can get you set up with your identification card (“N.I.E”), residential address registration (“Empadronamiento”) and Social Security number (“Seguridad Social”) if you will be working.

There are additional procedures if you plan on buying real estate in the country, and a Spanish property lawyer will be invaluable here. Business owners may also want legal advice on matters like registering a company, hiring employees and paying taxes. Employment contracts are subject to very specific laws and regulations, and we can help you with contract management to keep your business safe and compliant.

Spanish property lawyer for UK expats and others

Our English-speaking lawyers in Spain are here to help UK citizens and anglophone expats from all over the world buy residential or commercial real estate. These transactions are legally and procedurally complex even in your native language, so having a Spanish property lawyer is a real boon for UK and other expats. Spanish law establishes certain obligations for both the buyer and seller of property, and not meeting these requirements can cause serious financial problems.

For business owners, it is especially important to take steps to protect your company and assets during a real estate transaction. A power of attorney given to a Spanish property lawyer from Henry Towers offers peace of mind and allows you to focus on your business while we take care of everything.

English-speaking Spanish family lawyer

Your new life in Spain may lead to some major events, such as marriage, adoption of children, or divorce. Such cases can be legally complex as well as emotionally intense, and a Spanish family lawyer can help keep everything on track for all parties involved in accordance with national law. As an expat, you may also have questions or concerns about the custody and citizenship of children who are born in Spain, especially if the other parent has nationality that is different from yours. Our attorneys can help you navigate these challenging and often fraught situations, always working in the client’s best interest.

Henry Towers’ English-speaking lawyers in Spain are qualified to help expats and their businesses with all branches of law. We will be delighted to help you with immigration law, corporate and labor law, financial and tax law, real estate law, family law, and anything you may need. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have about our services.
