Carlos Vazquez

Carlos Vázquez is a Spanish lawyer specialising in private international law and transnational European matters. His focus is on advising German-speaking clients.

With more than 15 years of experience as a litigator in Mallorca, Carlos Vázquez has handled and solved a variety of legal cases for German, Austrian, Swiss and also Spanish clients. He deals mainly with inheritance law, real estate transactions and international litigation in general.

He represents and advises his clients on matters such as purchases and sales, gifts, wills, the dissolution of communities of heirs and estates, real estate auctions, tourist rentals and the recognition and enforcement of foreign judicial titles in Spain.

His personal background and professional experience enable him to anticipate the legal problems that non-Spaniards often face in Spain and to make appropriate arrangements for his clients. At the same time, he is no stranger to the legal perspective of the country of origin, so that he can explain to them in an understandable way the Spanish approach, which is nevertheless different in many cases.

His professional experience as a lawyer commuting between Mallorca and Düsseldorf has also enabled him to gain extensive insights into the economic and legal relations between Germany and Spain.

Finally, Carlos has held a lectureship in Spanish law at Heinrich Heine University since.
