What tips would you give to anyone thinking of starting up a business in Spain today?
Ignacio always says “Do what you´re passionate about, push as hard as you can. However expect unforeseen circumstances, be realistic and don´t expect big returns straight away.”
Have you learned a lot from the recession?
Of course, the recession has put everyone´s feet back on the ground. We have to adapt every day to existing circumstances and the current market.
Has the recession made you stronger as a company?
Definitely, you either adapt to the changing market or disappear. We need to adapt every day to the market; we always need to be one step ahead. There was volatility for the short term, but believe there will be stability in the long run.
Now with Brexit what do you think might happen in the future?
We believe there could be a period of uncertainty and everything will depend on the negotiations. That is down to the politicians. However the reasons to stay in Spain remain the same…. including the sunshine, quality and cost of living. We hope and expect more positivity for the remainder of the year and for the foreseeable future.
What for the future?
We remain dedicated to providing the ex-pat community in Spain with up to date information in changes in the law that affects them and committed to providing the best service as international lawyers and barristers.
