Successions are complicated procedures where it is advisable to rely on counselling by lawyers. Save trouble and leave the inheritance proceedings in our hands.

Debt Recovery

We have extensive experience in claims and debt collection through out-of-court settlements and legal claims, having obtained a significant number of favourable resolutions.

Before bringing proceedings, our lawyers will try to reach an agreement by contacting the debtor, as in some cases it may be interesting to negotiate and attempt a settlement before filing a lawsuit.

If no settlement in accordance with our client’s interests is possible, it will be necessary to take legal action against the debtors. In the Spanish legal system there are different types of procedures:


  • Ordinary proceedings: for debts exceeding € 6,000.00, or when the claimed amount cannot be determined beforehand.
  • Oral procedure: for debts not exceeding € 6,000.00.
  • Payment procedure: for debts shown reflected in any of the following documents:
    • Documents that appear signed and sealed by the debtor.
    • Invoices, delivery notes, certificates, telegrams and telefax.
    • Documents containing the debt in conjunction with commercial documents establishing a previous lasting relationship.
    •  Certifications of non-payment of amounts due from common costs of communities of urban property owners.
  • Exchange: debts shown in any of the following documents
    • Bill of exchange.
    • Check.
    •  Promissory note.
  • Enforcement procedure: claims of debts recorded in a public or private document.

"I was introduced to Juan by a colleague and he has certainly been exceptional. We were desperate to sort out a problem which no other lawyer was prepared to tackle. Juan was confident that he could solve it and he offered a no-win-no-fee option which I took gladly. The case was long and drawn, but we won in the end thanks to Juan’s outstanding efforts and attention to detail."
