  1. The help and support i’ve recieved from Hugo has been invaluable in getting the confidence to pursue debts owed to me by a unscrupulous landlord, always polite and timely in his responses i strongly recommend him to any English speaking Foreigners living in Spain and needing legal aid.

  2. Without Hugo we could not have purchased our property in Barcelona, it was an amazing service, he made it happen quickly & easily. Hugo advised us, guided us through the process & was happy to explain everything at every step. For us, no one understands the local system as well as Hugo, even when we encountered complex issues they were resolved by Hugo’s knowledge & experience. Hugo’s English is great so we had no problem communicating, besides translating what was going on the day of the contract signing, he also came with us to the local government offices on several visits afterwards. Hugo’s follow-up is timely & thorough, we would absolutely recommend Hugo to both local & foreign buyers & sellers of property in Barcelona. If we ever come to sell, Hugo will be our first call.

  3. Hugo’s name came up when I searched the internet for an English speaking lawyer in Barcelona to help with a property purchase.
    His English is excellent and and he steered me through the process, making it relatively stress-free. It was always easy to get hold of him on the phone and my e mails were always answered promptly. Highly recommended!

  4. The minute I spoke with Hugo for the first time explaining him our property issues via phone, he has immediately advised.
    It is rare to find such a positive and helpful lawyer these days.
    Thank you, Hugo!

  5. I met Hugo in 2012 as I wanted to acquire an apartment in Barcelona. I chose Hugo to assist me as a lawyer. I was impressed by his professionalism, his responsiveness and his reliability. As I was based in Hong Kong, and totally unfamiliar with the procedures in Spain, I really needed someone locally to take care of every details. Hugo’s answers were always precise and fact based, his advice always proved relevant and thanks to him the acquisition, the related administrative procedures and banking arrangements went smoothly and without delay, including the power of attorney which had to be done at the consulate in Hong Kong. Since this acquisition I’ve been in touch with Hugo who kept providing me with information whenever needed: his “after sales service” is clearly above my expectations. I fully trust his probity and value his advice. Last but not least, Hugo is a very nice and friendly person, always reachable: it is a pleasure to deal with him.

  6. Hugo har vært til stor hjelp i vår flytteprosess fra Norge til Barcelona og forhandlinger rundt kontrakter. Han er alltid kjapp til å svare, villig til å hjelpe og har tilbudt oss personlige tjenester langt utover det man kan forvente i ett profesjonelt forhold. Det er ingen tvil om at han alltid har hatt våres interesser i tankene og gitt sine anbefalinger samtidig som han har respektert våres avgjørelser.

    Tusen takk, Hugo!!! Du er en fantastisk person!

  7. I met Hugo in 2011 through a co-worker for whom he had won a very complicated labour lawsuit. Since then I am counting with his support and counselling in various legal subjects related to labour law and real state law. Over time it is evident to me his great commitment to the causes he represents, his high human values ​​and ability to manage challenges on behalf of his clients. Currently, he is still my lawyer.

  8. I am a Notary Public in Whitehall (Central London) specialized in Spanish Notary/Legal Work.
    I have known Hugo Navarrete since 2006. Since then he has referred my Notary services to many of his British clients to enable them to sign and legalise notarial documents for use in Spain without the need for those clients to travel to Spain. I have always found Hugo to be professional and reliable and the feedback I received from his clients has been very positive.
    It is always a pleasure to deal with Hugo and his clients.

  9. My Partner and I used Hugo in 2007 to buy a flat in Sitges Barcelona as he had been recommended to us by our property agent and we were very impressed . I was Senior Partner in a firm of Solicitors until I retired four years ago and whilst I was in practice I recommended Hugo regularly to clients buying properties in Spain who have l been equally impressed

  10. We’ve worked with Hugo on two occasions now, and both times he has been wonderful to work with. Great knowledge of Spanish law and communicates very well in English. More than that though, he’s friendly, approachable and easy to work with. He’s always happy to help.

  11. Hugo is a hard working and diligent professional who goes the extra mile for his clients. With his help, buying a home in Barcelona was a smooth and orderly process. You can trust him with all your legal needs. I’m so thankful to be able to call on Hugo whenever I have a legal issue that needs attention.

  12. Hugo has managed property conveyancing for me on several occasions, and I have been grateful for and impressed by the effort and commitment he puts into making the process run smoothly. He provides clear information and advice in what is a pretty complex market. On one occasion when I was part-way through a purchase and the seller pulled out, he persevered in rather trying circumstances and finally managed to reclaim the due compensation from the seller, which I have subsequently been told is quite unusual. I have recommended Hugo already to a number of friends based on the above and the fact that I trust him, to the point where when I have been travelling and unable to sign paperwork I have given him power of attorney to act on my behalf. I look forward to working together again soon.

  13. Hugo was referred to me by a friend and gave me some quick advice over the phone concerning a flat in Barcelona. It is fortunate to find an English speaking lawyer in Spain. I really appreciated his time and friendly manner.

  15. I have known Hugo for over 15 years and would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone looking for reliable and professional legal counsel.
    Not only did Hugo support me through the buying process in BCN – but also with selling the property at a later date.
    When Hugo gives you his word – quite simply – you are safe.
    Thank you Hugo
