      Francisco was incredibly responsive (and quick).


      Unlike American attorneys (and I know, because I am one), he didn't even bill me for a few follow-up emails/calls that he made on my behalf which he easily could have done.


      I was supremely happy with his legal services.

      From the outset, Rosa clearly explained the services.


      Buying a property abroad is a daunting experience but she made it very easy to understand. Anything that Rosa said she would do/carry out was done immediately. The whole process was carried out efficiently, effectively and without delays.


      Without having met Rosa personally, her whole approach was friendly, professional and helpful. Any questions we had were answered promptly. We would highly recommend Rosa to any prospective clients.


      When we finally met Rosa in person, she was lovely. We would have no hesitation in recommending Rosa.

      Mr KJB, Cordoba

      Francisco is still finalising some business for us but we are happy to give feedback now. He has provided us with the highest level of legal advice and made the whole process relatively easy for us and without undue stress.


      He was quick to respond and gave his advice in a very logical way and got to the point without fuss. His conversational and written English is first class!


      He carried his authority very professionally especially when having to deal with some difficult people (not us!) and he was able to bring the matter to a successful conclusion within a few weeks as opposed to many months had we done it alone.


      We could not have wished for a better lawyer to take us through a complicated process.


      Thank you Francisco!

      Our lawyer (Francisco) was very responsive. In a complex matter it needed some additional explanation via email until he fully understood what we were talking about, but then he understood the case and gave us very good and helpful advice.


      In the end he recommended not to proceed with the case which we followed. It was absolutely good value for the money we paid.

Business Set-Up

Who is this Service for?

If you have already decided on the type of business you want to run, and where you wish to locate it, then the main decision you will need to make is whether you should set it up as a limited company or as a sole trader.

This can be extremely important as you can save a considerable amount of money depending on which option you choose. Both have benefits and drawbacks.

Self-employed is of course cheaper to set-up and less costly to manage since the reporting requirements are lesser than in the case of limited companies.

On the other hand, limited companies do limit your liability in the case of a claim against your business, which depending on the type of business could be the only reason you need to opt for this type of structure. Otherwise, a limited company is rather more flexible when there are a number of partners or when the company has other, more complex attributes.

What does this service consist of?

  • Ensure legal interests are protected, especially when creating a company with several partners.
  • Drawing-up a notarial contract according to your guidelines, properly prepared and tailored to your objectives.
  • Ensuring that your Articles of Association contain all necessary elements.
  • Make sure that the application is made in accordance with the requirements of the Commercial Companies Code. With the power of attorney you will have granted to us, on your behalf we will register your company at all Government institutions and offices required by law.
  • Applying for company tax and identification numbers.
  • Obtaining all necessary documents, permits and approvals.
  • Dealing with bank formalities connected with setting up of the company bank account.
  • Once completed the registration process, we will draw up all other corporate documents required by the Commercial Companies Code.
