Oscar, Lawyer in Barcelona ...
Oscar is a lawyer based in Barcelona who obtained his degree at the Barcelona University 20 years ago. He leads a law firm highly experienced in Real Estate law, Inheritance, Rental Agreements, Family Law, Debt Recovery, Litigation, Breach of Contracts and Immigration. Besides Spanish and Catalan, his firm is also able to provide legal advice and representation in Russian. You can just contact him to arrange an appointment locally in his office, by telephone or Skype.
We had been looking for a lawyer who was Spanish, but English speaking, to help us write our Spanish Wills. We found Oscar through Advocate Abroad. He was quick to respond to messages, knowledgeable and guided us through the whole process, taking into account Spanish laws that we weren’t aware of. He also organised the appointment at the notary and made the whole process stress-free. We would highly recommend contacting Oscar if you need help writing a will in the Barcelona area.

What practice areas do our lawyers in Barcelona handle?

Of course, we have a profound understanding of the unique challenges faced by expatriates who have made Barcelona their home, and we offer a wide range of legal and tax services tailored to meet the specific needs of those living or moving to this vibrant city.

Our independent lawyers (abogados in Spanish) complement each other such that they are able to offer assistance equivalent to a full service law firm.  

Real estate Transactions

Our services include real estate law, helping you navigate the complexities of purchasing or renting property in Barcelona. We provide expert guidance on local property laws, ensuring a smooth and secure transaction from finding a home through to offer, reservation and exchange of contracts.

Given the high numbers of expats who choose to rent in Barcelona, we often find ourselves providing assistance and support in this area.

For those seeking to start a business or invest in Spain, our commercial law expertise is invaluable. We assist with company formations, contracts, and compliance with Spanish business regulations.

Immigration Law

Family Law

Our family law services cater to personal matters such as marriage, divorce, and custody, respecting your privacy and cultural nuances.


Employment Law

Our lawyers are able to provide labour law advice to clients - be they employees or employers. Dealing with employment laws in any country is complex, and Spain is no different - if anything it is more complex in that it is unique and has its own idiosyncrasies. 


Criminal Law

It is an unfortunate fact of life that English-speakers require legal advice on matters of criminal law.

Should you or a family member come up against the law and personal liberty is at stake, ensuring that you receive expert advice from experience solicitors in the field of criminal law is critical.

Wills & Probate

Inheritance tax law in Spain is a complex field and requires experience and up-to-date knowledge in order to navigate the process successfully.

It can often be the case that those dealing with probate may well be relatives in another country, with little understanding of local laws. We understand this and appreciate that dealing with unfamiliar tax systems, in foreign countries, requires the best level of communication and expertise in English from the beginning and throughout the process.

Tax Advice

Our lawyers in Barcelona offer a comprehensive solution to navigating the complexities of Spanish tax laws.

We understand that moving to a new country comes with its challenges, especially in dealing with unfamiliar tax systems, these services provide expert guidance in English.

We specialise in addressing the unique tax obligations and opportunities that expats face, such as non-resident tax returns, wealth tax implications, and potential tax benefits such as Beckham law.

With personalized consultations, these services ensure that expats comply with Spanish tax regulations while optimizing their financial situation. This support is crucial in making the transition to life in Barcelona smoother and more financially sound.
