Marbella Lawyers and Solicitors
Spanish Legal Services
Our Spanish lawyers based in our Marbella legal office established since 2002 provide an English speaking service especially focused on the needs of foreigners buying or selling property in the Costa del Sol, Spain, and those interested in starting businesses in Spain.
Mesa & Green Abogados (Spanish Lawyers) aim to provide all our English speaking clients with a high quality of service. Our objective is clear communications with our English speaking clients in order to provide an excellent quality of service.
Our Spanish property lawyer Luis Mesa (Abogado), Spanish legal assistant Naomi Tandon and Des Sparkes, will deal with your queries, and provide you with a written breakdown of our Spanish conveyancing services and fees. All our Spanish legal and conveyancing services are provided only by our licensed Spanish lawyers who are members of the local Spanish Malaga law society (IIustre Colegio de Abogados de Malaga).
All initial consultations, meetings and enquiries with our Marbella based Spanish Lawyers, and Accountants are free of charge. Please feel free to send any email enquiries to Des Sparkes at firstname.lastname@example.org or call on (00 34) 600 670 688.
All our experienced Spanish property law team in our Marbella office in Spain are fluent in English, and Des Sparkes is based at our new 2013 client communications office in England. He was previously based in our Marbella office where he worked as an English Solicitor with our Spanish lawyers for 9 years. He was a member of the local Spanish Malaga. During this period Des Sparkes LLB. LLM. was fully licensed to practise as a Solicitor with Spanish lawyers in Marbella. He held a practising certificate as an English Solicitor in this role from 2003 to 2012, as well as being a member of the Law Society of England and Wales. As from January 2013 Des Sparkes stopped working in a Solicitor capacity with Mesa & Green Abogados in Spain, and now solely assists Mesa & Green in communcations and marketing to their international English speaking clients from his base in England.
(Des Sparkes retains his practising certificate as an English Solicitor only in his capacity as “In-house” Solicitor in the private company Tingis Fund S.A.R.L. His work within this company has no connection with his aforementioned marketing and communication role within the Marbella based Spanish law firm Mesa & Green Abogados.)
Impartial Spanish Legal Advice
We provide impartial legal advice, and act only in the best interests of our clients, as we do not receive our clients from links with Spanish estate agents, which creates a conflict of interest between the parties involved. Therefore it is safer for clients to choose their own independent Spanish lawyers, rather than purely selecting the lawyer recommended by the estate agent. (Unlike in Britain, estate agents in Spain often have close relationships with certain Spanish lawyers, and encourage buyers of their listed properties to use those lawyers. This is frowned upon in Britain due to the clear conflict of interest between the responsibilities of the estate agent, and the different responsibilities of a lawyer.)
