Real Estate - Spain

Fast, complex, cross-border real estate transactions? A done deal

Today, the global real estate market is moving faster than ever. With money flowing in and out of more and more locations you need a law firm that understands your mind-set and helps you make sense of local laws in the context of your own experiences.

The high activity in the Spanish real estate sector over the last 2 years is expected to continue. Price adjustments, together with the increasing availability of jobs and the improved performance of the Spanish economy (among the highest in the Eurozone), means that Spain is now one of the most attractive markets for investors.
