International Funds - Spain

Nobody knows international funds like we do

Whether it is pioneering new fund structures or developing innovative solutions to accommodate tax and regulatory change, the international funds team is part of the DNA of the investment funds industry. As advisors to a greater variety of global funds than any other law firm, we know international funds inside out. We combine that market experience with in-depth tax and regulatory knowledge to give you practical, cost-effective legal advice that you can implement quickly.

In Spain we have 15 years’ experience advising private equity and venture capital funds. Our law firm is the only one in Spain where lawyers from other practice areas such as commercial, tax and litigation have specific experience in the private equity and venture capital sector. This allows us to create an international funds team ideally suited to your needs and business model.
