Ask for a lawyers registration number and check it out before you proceed to instruct them.
  • Insured: You should check that your lawyer in Spain has professional indemnity insurance  to cover the advice that they provide to you. You should also check that the insurance covers the value and type of transaction they are dealing with for you.
  • Experienced: You will also need to ensure that the lawyer in Spain has experience and expertise in the area of Spanish law for which you require advice. For example it may not be a great idea to have a property lawyer deal with your business deals and vice versa unless they have sufficient experience.
  • English-speaking: Your Spanish lawyer should be fluent in English (unless you are fluent in Spanish) so that you will be able to understand the advice being provided.
  • Recommended: Are you able to find anyone who has used the lawyer before and can recommend their services? Worldwide Lawyers obtain feedback from other people who have previously instructed Spanish lawyers to get their feedback and recommendations.
  • Independent: It is extremely important to make sure that your Spanish lawyer is not in any way connected to the estate agent or property developer (if dealing with a property transaction) or the other side. So steer clear from recommendations from estate agents, developers, sellers or the party on the other side of your transaction!
