For making business and investments from abroad in Germany or Spain, it is essential to know the corporate and legal particularities of these two important partners from the European Union. Their commercial relations are close and the business between both countries grows annually at a sustained rate.
It should be noted that over 11% of Spanish exports in Europe, are destined to German, hence the relevance of the Austrian and Swiss markets in our national territory.
On the other hand, the German products imports are equivalent to 14% of all import transactions that Spain makes within the European Union.
Our goal has always been to offer quality at competitive prices, with talent and commitment to work. Therefore, we have been inspired by the way companies are run in Central Europe and we want to make a differentiation by having a team of native German speakers, that have knowledge about the legislation, cultural habits and commercial uses in German-speaking countries, and of the dynamics that govern their relations with Spain.
Having this knowledge allows us to offer advice to German, Austrian and Swiss companies with interests in Spain. In the same way, our close collaboration with leading companies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland guarantees us the provision of quality legal services to Spanish companies in their investments and commercial activity in these states.
