French Law

Our French Desk is more than just a department dedicated to French law.

 

It is intended to serve as a unique contact between Spain and France for all those with interests in either country.

Brugueras, Alcantara & Garcia-Bragado also has offices in Paris and is composed of bilingual and bicultural lawyers with a dual training in French and Spanish law.

Our Partner, Catherine Marti de Anzizu, a lawyer with experience in counselling and litigation in both countries, leads the French Desk. In addition, she has been a counsellor-lawyer at the French Consulate General in Barcelona since 2004.

Our professionals have over 20 years of advising individuals and companies between our two countries. Specifically, we are specialized both in advising French companies to establish and develop in the Spanish and Latin American market, and in Spanish companies to establish and develop   in France and in the French-speaking markets.

Multidisciplinary French and Spanish lawyers, registered in both countries and practising in both France and Spain form the team, which allows us to bring lawsuits and represent our clients before the French and Spanish courts. Likewise, we also carry out arbitration proceedings in France, as well as European and international proceedings conducted in French language. We also advise and carry out proceedings for the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments.

Furthermore, our firm is a member of the Monassier Group, the leading notary network in France, with more than 180 notaries and 750 associates, and also has an international network of lawyers and notaries in 12 countries (Algeria, Germany, China, Spain (Brugueras, Alcantara & García-Bragado), the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, Israel, Madagascar, Morocco, Senegal, Switzerland and Togo).
