A large part of Spanish industry is faced with a novel problem derived from the opportunity offered by foreign trade. The level of exports is at record highs, and many companies have discovered distribution abroad as a key to increasing their sales. Similarly, the internationalization of the industry offers great opportunities to acquire a low-cost supply from developing countries such as China, India or Bangladesh.
The purchase and sale of goods between Spanish and foreign companies requires specialized legal advice in commercial relations and foreign trade, and the coordination of lawyers with experience in international commercial law. That is why we make available to our clients a team of lawyers segmented by subjects:
We are lawyers of companies linked to the food industry, such as cooperatives and wine cellars, important marketers of legumes and cereals, or factories of sausages, hams and other meat products. We also advise wholesale companies in other sectors with distribution abroad, and the retail sector in their contractual relations of transport, agency, sub-agency, distribution, supply, etc.
