DD’s purpose is to gather as much information as possible and enable a full analysis of the financial viability of the intended transaction, and its effects on the parties. Thus, with the completion of the analysis we are able to provide a complete picture of the target company, thus strengthening the negotiating position of the buyer and reducing its future risks.

Trademarks are also an integral part of Business. National, Community and International Trademarks are the ID of each company and at the same time the passport for their promotion.

The proper legal management of cash flows is a key point towards a business’s sustainable development, ensuring a company’s unobstructed operation even under difficult economic conditions.

TAX LAW

Our office has given us a great deal of importance in this particular area, as it is the source of many problems long before the tax administration became more methodical and aggressive. In particular, hundreds of tax laws have been passed and implemented in recent years, requiring a high level of expertise and diligence to deal with them.
That’s why our office has a long standing partnership with an outside lawyer and tax consultant in order to provide full services to our clients.

COLLECTION of BAD DEBTS

We undertake the judicial collection of overdue financial claims in a cost-effective and efficient manner, especially following recent changes to the Code of

Civil Procedure, which gave creditors important legal tools to accelerate the collection of their claims, which we have already implemented with impressive results. One of the most important areas of our activity, as legal proceedings before the courts do not always come with the expected results. Thus the correct use of this legal tool enables us the best results for our customers.

Claims against the State,
Public Entities and
Local Authorities

A special case, due to the multiplicity and the strict bureaucracy that governs them are the claims against state bodies.
Our office has top-level knowledge and experience in the matter, having successfully heard hundreds of relevant trials and has produced specific case law for its clients.
This area of activity established us in the judicial reality with successful results that justify our dedication to the maximum despite the demanding legal issues that arisein such claims.

Having dealt with the whole range of cases related to Guardianship we are able to support the relatives of these people and confront with our experience the human factor in combination with our legal training to deal with a complex legal situation, such as Guardianship.

PURCHASE-LEASING
OF REAL ESTATE / REAL ESTATE
MANAGEMENT

In our opinion, the mandatory representation of lawyers in the purchase and sale of real estate was rightly abolished, as it had turned the lawyer into a necessary tool for the citizen. However, transactions of tens or hundreds of thousands of euros require the involvement of lawyers which feeds our client with the feeling of security that possible harmful consequences will be avoided through our experienced intervention.

Also for our clients who have a large real estate or those who live abroad, we provide the possibility of total management of their property, covering with our external partners and its tax management.
