Travelling abroad is nearly always a positive experience. Most day to day things can be managed such as shopping, local travel and dining out with limited language skills. Dealing with more serious issues where accuracy is critical is far more challenging. Legal issues most certainly need careful handling, that is when a full understanding of the language, culture and crucially the law becomes absolutely imperative. Giambrone's Spanish lawyers in Barcelona can provide assistance and support in all your legal matters.

If you are working in Spain and facing difficulties in your job, perhaps because of a dispute with your employer, redundancies are on the cards, or there is some issue affecting your working life, it can seem daunting because whilst you may be aware of your rights under UK employment law, things can be very different in another country, both culturally and legally. We have English speaking Spanish Abogado (equivalent to Solicitor) on our team who can provide you with the guidance you need, as well as specialist expertise in Spanish employment law.
Our expert Spanish lawyers have specialised knowledge in Spanish probate law and will make everything clear to you on the differences between this, and the probate law in England & Wales. Guiding you through the entire process, we will take care of as much as you require on your behalf, keeping you informed at every step.
Whether you are in the UK and faced with dealing with the estate of a relative in Spain, or are based in Spain and daunted by the prospect of handling potentially vast paperwork alone after the passing of a loved one, it is easy to feel somewhat overwhelmed by the task of dealing with the Spanish authorities and tax system. But with guidance from Giambrone’s specialist probate Abogado (equivalent to Solicitor) in Spain, you will have peace of mind from start to finish courtesy of localised, in-depth knowledge and an understanding approach.
Spanish Inheritance Tax
The Spanish inheritance tax system is considered complex, even more so than the system in England & Wales. There are numerous instances when you may require inheritance tax advice from Spanish lawyers. Obviously when you have inherited assets in Spain; but you will also benefit from advice when you are buying and selling a property and need a will to safeguard your investment.
The rules on Spanish IHT vary from region to region in Spain, so localised knowledge is vital. The English speaking Spanish Abogado (equivalent to Solicitor) at Giambrone will be able to advise you specifically depending on the appropriate locality, as well as on resident and non-resident payment processes. The in-depth advice you need can be provided on a bespoke basis.
