JUST 10 years ago a pair of lawyers who had been working in International Law decided to set up their own company, Pellicer & Heredia.
Since that start, just prior to the credit crunch, Ignacio Pellicer and Pedro Heredia have seen their empire grow so that having started in Alicante they now have the ability to service clients from all over Spain.
Currently, their main areas of work are from Denia (Alicante) to Mojacar (Almería) but in the same way that legal matters cross all boundaries, so they are dedicated to provide a first class service to English speaking expatriates wherever they are based.
Customer satisfaction is their goal and as international lawyers they pride themselves in offering a personalised, knowledgeable yet local service in the language of their clients but with a full understanding of Spanish and Spanish law.
Part of their service is to offer assistance to anyone setting up a new business in Spain and Ignacio 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.”
The recession has brought people down to earth with a bang but it has also made many businesses including their own become smarter and more alert to the vagaries of international business.
The partners are convinced that in business you either adapt to the changing market or disappear, saying “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.”
Brexit is the latest challenge for many of their clients and they recognise that there could be a period of uncertainty with everything depending 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. They certainly hope and expect more positivity for the remainder of the year and for the foreseeable future.
They remain dedicated to providing the expat 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.
Working for companies and individuals they are also expert tax advisors and have a department specialising in property conveyance.
