Who is it intended for?


This service will be of interest to private or public individuals, companies or fellow foreign law firms that may be in the need to have a judgment executed in Spain in either civil or commercial matters.

  • Creditors who need to enforce a charge recognized by a foreign court against a Spanish property at the Land Registry.
  • Creditors of a company with assets located in Spain.


What does it include?


It includes both recognizing the foreign court decisions and executing them in Spain through the Spanish law courts.


Case Study


Warren Spector & Associates has obtained on behalf of their client a ruling whereby it is established that their client is owed monies by a debtor who is now living in Spain. This law firm hires us to execute a UK ruling in Spain whereby their client is able to successfully place a charge against the Spanish assets of his debtor thus securing the owed amounts. This will avoid the debtor selling off the assets and waiving his financial liabilities to his UK creditor.
