When deciding on a suitable Spanish lawyer to instruct you will need to check that your lawyer is:
You should check that your Spanish lawyer is registered with one of the colegio de abogados (Spanish bar associations). Bar associations in Spain are divided into different areas you will need to find out which of the bar association your lawyer is registered with so you can check this. Ask for a lawyers registration number and check it out before you proceed to instruct them.
You should check that your lawyer in Spain has professional indemnity insurance to cover the advice that they provide to you. You should also check that the insurance covers the value and type of transaction they are dealing with for you.
You will also need to ensure that the lawyer in Spain has experience and expertise in the area of Spanish law for which you require advice.
