In today’s global economy more and more companies and businesses are importing and exporting and doing business overseas. Combined with the increase of disposable income in recent years, we have seen more and more people buying second properties abroad, in Spain, Italy, Cyprus and further afield.
This is why we have formed associations with other independent law firms in each of these countries and many others, so that when you are considering buying a house abroad or doing business overseas, we can put you in touch with a local professional who can steer you through the maze of local laws and customs.
It is important that you instruct a lawyer who is ‘independent’ rather than one who is employed by the developer of the property which you are intending to purchase. We cannot advise on matters of foreign law (not even Scottish or Irish law!) because we are only qualified and authorised to advise on matters of English law but we can oversee the whole transaction and raise the questions which need to be raised and where necessary chase for satisfactory replies and progress.
We have many foreign clients doing business in the UK and many English clients doing business abroad so we are well experienced in these matters. We also speak several languages at this office.
Our associated office in London, Lester Dominic Solicitors, also has an Immigration Law specialist in Mr Lester Kan. He has expert local knowledge of China and Hong Kong and is able to converse in Cantonese and Mandarin.
We also have fully qualified Spanish lawyers in this office who can assist you with any legal matter in Spain. Call us now on 01565 634 100 for free expert advice.
