Our services


Whether you are a Spanish resident, or not, if you have any serious problems or disputes you can count on our support. Whether you are the plaintiff or the defendant we are here to help.

Real Estate

If you are planning to purchase or sell a property, a plot of land or any kind of commercial premises in Malaga or anywhere else in Spain, the first move you should make is to contact a Spanish solicitor. An independent professional who will protect your interests and ensure the transaction is trouble free. Choosing your solicitor is very important and it is worth finding one who you feel comfortable with, as regards both service and price. It is essential to take advice.


As solicitors specialised in Tax matters, we offer the possibility of providing quick general tax advice or preparing written technical fiscal opinions on any kind of matter regarding Spanish Tax Laws.

Accountancy & Bookeeping

Our aim is to provide complete and cost effective accounting, bookkeeping and payroll services to any business or private individual. We use the latest accounting and payroll software and our systems are designed to enable smaller businesses to have all the advantages of having their own accounts and payroll departments without the costs of having to employ expensive staff.

Translation Services

We specialize in handling different types of technical tax and legal translations as well as commercial ones, often containing vocabulary and terminology that is sector specific.

Architectural Service

MARBELLA SOLICITORS has worked in collaboration with ABM Architects for over 8 years and we have no hesitation, based on the experience of our clients, in recommending them as architects of the highest quality.

Registered Clients

We offer a special service for those clients who are habitually in Spain, do not have serious legal problems but may need legal assistance or advice from time to time and do not want to spend large amounts on solicitors fees.

Professional support for private interests in Spain

Our Team

Why our clients trust in us?
Here is what our clients have to say about us

  • We spent two months in Spain last year viewing properties and finally found one that ticked all the boxes. The Estate Agent gave us a list of six possible solicitors to choose from to help us through the process of buying a property. We contacted each solicitor to discuss our needs and to see if we felt comfortable with any of them. Jose Manuel Garzon of Axarquia Solicitors was the one we chose and arranged a meeting at their offices. From the outset he was reassuring and responsive to our questions and concerns and made us feel very happy with our choice. We returned to the UK not long after the initial meeting knowing we were in safe hands. We gave Jose the Power of Attorney to represent us with the Notary,which was a good decision. Whilst in the UK we received emails, documents, and phone calls all in English that kept us up to date with everything. Through José’s diligence he gave us good advice not to proceed with the purchase when it was found there was an embargo on the property. However the embargo was eventually lifted allowing purchase to proceed. Jose gave us a fixed price for his services which was fully itemised and was not paid until completion. Jose and the back office staff have been professional, honest and understanding. We highly recommend their services and professionalism. We are now the proud owners of our property in Spain. Thank you Jose it has been an absolute pleasure.

    Gail & Andrew Wheatcroft (Vélez Málaga – Málaga)
  • “We first discovered Marbella Solicitors when my wife and I were looking to buy a property in Spain. We found a young, enthusiastic team of lawyers prepared to work hard to ensure we got what we needed and at a price that was so much more reasonable than we had been quoted elsewhere. The transaction completed on time and at the cost specified. Needless to say, we have remained clients and friends and have asked them to do several other things like filing taxes and organising Spanish wills”.

Marbella Solicitors had helped him successfully resolve an extremely complex business venture in the Sierra de Ronda.

Jose and Eduardo produced a plan for my retirement to Spain covering all the necessary legal and financial requirements that would need to be completed during the first 3 years.

Accessible, prompt and trustworthy would be my description.”
