  1. One thing I forgot to mention is that Hugo also got NIE numbers for myself and my wife very , very quickly . Much quicker than it would have taken us.

  2. Hugo made my property purchase in Sitges very straight forward and he gave me complete piece of mind . He even helped me in setting up a Spanish bank account and he’ll continue to help me with certain tax advice. I’d recommend him to anyone.

  3. We recently had the pleasure of working with Hugo on a property purchase, and recommend him highly. Hugo is a highly skilled lawyer who truly makes things happen. He opens doors when and where you need them, ensuring a smooth and efficient process from start to finish.

    He meticulously reviewed our purchase agreement, and conducted the necessary due diligence providing us with peace of mind, knowing that potential issues were addressed proactively. He communicates clearly and promptly, keeping you informed along the way.

    Additionally, Hugo’s knowledge of international currency exchange and foreign banking is invaluable. He provided insightful advice on how to save money by optimizing currency exchange rates, which resulted in significant savings for us. Moreover, he facilitated the process of opening a foreign bank account, making it straightforward and hassle-free. His guidance in these areas was instrumental in ensuring that our international property purchase was not only legally sound but also financially advantageous.

  4. هوغو هو ببساطة محام محترف، لقد ساعدنا في شراء عقار في إسبانيا عندما كان وضعنا معقدًا للغاية و كانت الاجراءات شبه مستحيله. مستوى تواصل رائع ومحترف للغاية، لقد حققنا نجاحًا كبيرًا معًا وأوصي بهوغو باعتباره أحد أفضل المحامين للعقار في إسبانيا. انسان رائع و محامي محترف و أمين. و شكرا

  5. I have worked with Hugo for many years and used him for the purchase of property and related legal matters in Sitges, Spain. More than 10 years ago, he helped me with a different legal matter, which involved taking action against an individual in the courts to recover money owed to me. The court action was successful but the individual absconded. Hugo continued to pursue the case for a number of years, even though I had not been able to pay him from the proceeds of the legal action. Eventually, he was successful. It was only due to Hugo’s diligence and persistence that I eventually received payment, which I had almost given up any hope of recovering. A big thank you Hugo for persevering over the years to get a result from the case. I would highly recommend Hugo.

  6. Hugo a été incroyable! C’est quelqu’un de très humain qui, dans ma situation, n’avait aucune obligation de m’aider. Il l’a fait de bon coeur et sans lui cela aurait été beaucoup plus difficile pour moi de récupérer mon argent après un déménagement. Les escroqueries sont malheureusement encore nombreuses, et dans un pays étrangé ça fait du bien de pouvoir compter sur des personnes comme Hugo.
    Merci pour tout Hugo!

  7. I found Hugo through a recommendation in the Facebook group, ‘After Brexit in Spain’. As someone negatively impacted by changes resulting from Brexit I found myself needing to sell my flat, a stressful decision I was feeling emotional about. I was dreading all the administrative and legal work around this, but Hugo is a unique individual. He was clear and reassuring from our initial contact, explaining the process and always responding personally and directly to my queries. It was great to have direct access to him via Whatsapp and the phone and email, and not have to deal with associates or receptionists taking messages and promising a call back. Hugo came down from Barcelona to accompany me on the day of signing the property over, and it really put my mind at rest to know he would be there for any last minute hitches that could arise. We were a long time in the office of the notario, and he also came woth me to my bank to clarify a necessary certificado and so on. I speak pretty good Spanish but legal language and the stress of the situation means I’m not always as confident and accurate as you need to be for tranactions like property buying/selling. I wish I had had a laywer like Hugo on my side when I bought. I can’t recommend him enough, and hope one day to buy him a coffee in London. He is a real gem in the profession.

  8. Having recently bought a village house in Andalucía, Spain, Hugo Navarrete was recommended by the vendor of the property for the role of conveyancing the property. We were able instruct Hugo to co-ordinate both the sale and purchase. As both parties were UK based and neither had a fluent grasp of the Spanish language or legal process, communication was paramount. Hugo is bi-lingual and was able to translate documentation, make phone calls and attend meetings on my behalf. He also used email and WhatsApp which speeded the conveyancing up. Hugo really took the stress out of buying, his support and professionalism were invaluable and I am now the happy owner of a lovely house with mountain views. Thank you Hugo!

  9. Hugo managed to get us NIEs in less than a week, and proceeded to hold our hands throughout the process of buying a flat, keeping us from making stupid mistakes and making the whole process go far more smoothly that we imagined possible. He’s super responsive, knowledgeable, and friendly. Couldn’t recommend him more highly.

  10. We recently purchased a property in Spain, and found Hugo through a Google search. From the outset, we found him to be very upfront and direct, and he had our trust from the start. He was diligent and thorough, and had our best interests throughout.
    Although we were in Ireland, we were very comfortable knowing that Hugo was watching out for us. We can’t thank or recommend Hugo highly enough, he really looks after his clients.
    Pat & Gillian

  11. I found Hugo through an Online search and after reading the reviews I met with him. All those positive reviews are accurate and even short to commend on the qualities and service level Hugo provides.

    First, I am writing this review a little over 6 months from my first interaction with Hugo and after the apartment purchase is completed, all my questions are answered and there is literally nothing pending. And I can tell you that I am grateful to have chosen to work with Hugo. The type of purchase I went for (which is my first apt purchase by the way) was not straight forward as it was Bare ownership/ usufructo type of sale. Hugo let all the effort and discussions with a highly ethical and moral compass that considered the Seller and buyer equally. He was very patient, and really walked us through all the details and legal possible loopholes.

    He ensured that we are covered, helped negotiate with realtor / buyer and ensured that we are exposed or duped.

    The real estate agent was not straight forward and hid a few pieces of information that at the time of signing the sale caused a tax issue that risked the sale and exposed financially a little bit. Hugo was on top of it, ensured we know all our rights as buyer and devised a contract with realtor to legally protect us and get back our financial exposure. And imagine, he did all this without asking for a money of his fees!! In fact, I have been chasing him to pay his fees and he has pushing back to ensure everything is complete and we don’t have anything pending before sending his invoice.

    Highly recommended!!

    Thank you Hugo ❤️🙏

  12. Hugo is a committed lawyer who gets things done for his clients. He is certainly unconventional, but extremely caring, excellent in execution and absolutely by the book. Highly recommended partner for any business you have in Spain.

    Hugo ist ein großartiger Anwalt. Es ist sicherlich etwas unkonventionell, aber man merkt bei jede Interaktion, dass er das Beste für seine Kunden erreichen will und er kennt sich sehr gut aus und leistet exzellente Arbeit. Absolut empfehlenswert als Partner bei spanischen Angelegenheiten.

  13. We highly recommend Hugo as a lawyer for first-time homebuyers like us, expats navigating the Barcelona real estate market. He’s professional, responsive, and genuinely cares about his clients. Hugo’s proactive approach, including two trips to the municipality at no extra cost, ensured a smooth process. His transparency and commitment make him the perfect choice for anyone navigating a home purchase.

  14. Dear Hugo,

    This is Johnny and Peter and you recently represented us when purchasing our first apartment abroad.
    We wanted to take a moment to express our sincere gratitude for the legal guidance and support that you provided during the acquisition process.

    Firstly one of THE most important things for us was how you responded to us as people. This quality is priceless and represents one of your greatest virtues as a lawyer.
    You helped us navigate our first encounter with the vagieries of the housing market. Plus the fact that we were buying abroad meant that we were doubly in the dark and in need of help!.

    Your extensive knowledge of real estate law and an acute attention to detail instilled a confidence in us right from the beginning, knowing that we had sound and solid legal representation.
    Your fastidiousness ensured that all the legal documents produced were thorough and accurate. This was very important as there was an initial problem with the certificate of habitation, which meant that the whole process was delayed. This left us feeling unduly stressed and anxious.
    Consequently we really appreciated your level of communication which included prompt responses to our inquiries, via both phone and email. This made us feel valued as clients. You made yourself available whenever we had any enquiries or concerns and your down to earth and friendly manner always left us feeling reassured and confident.

    We also appreciated your clarification skills especially when the owner was behaving in a way that was puzzling to us. There were further delays with the land registry and you persistently chased the Notary on our behalf to iron out all of the problems that were stopping the registration from going ahead. It was evident that our best interests were always your top priority.
    It was only when everything had been successfully registered that you presented us with your invoice.

    Thanks to your legal expertise and professionalism we are now the proud owners of the apartment that we have always dreamed of.

    After a rollercoaster ride with a few bumps along the way we are set to continue onto our next adventure. And for this reason we will be using your assistance again as we consider our next purchase.

    We would highly recommend your services to anyone seeking legal representation in real estate matters. Especially people who are buying for the first time.

    Johnny and Peter.


  15. Excellent service …
    Super karma…
    Un grand plaisir d’avoir pu te faire confiance et avoir eu ton retour expérimenté !!!!
    A recommander !!!

  16. Hugo was recommended to me by an English friend who had purchased property in Barcelona some years previously. It turned out to be a great recommendation. We did a quick check first and found that he is listed on both the Irish and Norwegian consulate websites, which was a good sign. After we engaged him, Hugo guided us through the entire process and went out of his way to help us with things beyond the purchase of the property, including securing NEIs, getting house insurance and registered with the municipality. We felt that he was very much our advocate and he engaged with the mortgage lender, the seller’s representative, and others (even while he was on holiday!). Our situation was unusual, in that my wife is based in Norway, and I’m Irish, but working in Dubai, and neither of us speak any Spanish, but I always felt sure that Hugo could solve any problem. Not only does he know his stuff, but the man is an absolute gent and will be at our new apartment for cocktails as soon as it is ready. If you need an English-speaking lawyer in Barcelona, you cannot go wrong with Hugo. Can’t recommend him highly enough.

  17. I 2015-2016 måtte familien vår håndtere et komplisert arveoppgjør, hvor boet var delt mellom Norge og Spania og begge lands lovgivning spilte inn. Heldigvis kom vi i kontakt med advokat Hugo Navarrete via Den norske ambassaden i Madrid, og han sørget for en rask og ryddig prosess. Senere har vi hatt vansker med husokkupanter, og til slutt huskjøpere som ikke overholdt kjøpekontrakten. Vi har periodevis fått hjelp av Hugo helt frem til nå i 2023 og er svært takknemlig for hans profesjonelle og smidige håndtering. I tillegg til juridisk veiledning på flytende engelsk har han bidratt med lokalkunnskap og konstruktiv kontakt med motparter, notar og rettsapparat, slik at vi har unngått tidkrevende og kostbare rettsprosesser.

    Det har vært en glede å samarbeide med Hugo i alle disse årene, og vi kan varmt anbefale hans advokattjenester.

  18. We found Hugo via the UK Foreign Office website. We consider ourselves very lucky to have found him. As complete novices in the complexities and challenges of buying a property in Spain, we didn’t quite know what we had let ourselves in for, but Hugo was calm and measured throughout and guided us through the process with the calming hand of a real professional. He pointed us in the right direction where we needed additional support (eg for a survey) and worked closely with the various parties to move the whole process towards a successful conclusion. He also provided some very helpful commercial advice which saved us quite a bit of money. We can highly recommend Hugo, both for his english speaking ability and for the quality of support and advice that we received.

  19. Gail..As an American it was hugely important for us to find an English speaking attorney who would calmly walk us through the whole process.We had some legal difficulties transferring funds from the United States and it was causing us acute timeline anxieties, so much so that we almost called off the purchase until we found Hugo online.. From the start he was incredibly warm, attentive and professional, he was able to put all the right people in contact for the sale to finally go through on time and without a hitch.. We were so grateful and will most certainly be using his services again, he has quickly become a valued personal friend to us both.. We will happily recommend him to anybody …Gail and Eddie

  20. Hugo helped me with the entire process of the purchase of my apartment in Barcelona.

    He was patient, thorough, organised with great attention to detail. Hugo was there for me whenever and he really cared about making sure I knew everything.

    He went above and beyond for me to help me with anything I needed and I feel extremely lucky to have found him!

    He made everything so easy and things went smooth with him in charge.

    Thanks for helping me with something so stressful! Thank you thank you thank you!!!

    I can recommend Hugo a 1000000% !

  21. Hugo helped me through the process of buying a property with some register discrepancies, which ended up being a bit more challenging than expected.

    While we did not end up finalizing the sale, I am happy that I could rely on Hugo throughout the process.

    From start to finish he was always available for any questions or doubts. He recommended a great architect to work with, obtained NIE’s through POA for declarations and so much more.

    On top of his attention to detail, professionalism and calm composure in stressful situations, he also takes a personal approach. He took the time to meet and get to know my parents who were financially involved in the purchase and made them feel comfortable.

    I can’t thank Hugo enough for his help and know who to contact for any future legal advice.

    1. Hugo was so helpful , accurate,,efficient and very professional in processing all aspects of my NIE application. To be honest, I had found my previous attempts to obtain one almost impossibly difficult. Hugo’s expertise was so useful in his speedy assistance.I can recommend his services without hesitation

  22. Dear Hugo,
    Your impeccable professionalism, cheerful personality and indomitable Iberian charm, your attention to detail, coupled with a deep knowledge of the ins and outs of the property market and legislation, have turned what could have been a daunting chore into an exciting and genuinely pleasant exploration.

    We are most grateful for all you have done for us, and we are delighted that you have agreed to act as our legal representative, and that we have become friends. I cannot recommend you highly enough.

  23. Hugo, es un gran profesional, hemos trabajado con el como Agencia Immobiliaria y la verdad es que ha sido todo un placer.
    El te facilita las cosas, siempre basándose en la legalidad , eso está claro.
    Es un abogado que habla muchos idiomas y eso lo encuentro muy importante para los clientes extranjeros que no conocen a nadie y quieren comprar un bien en España.
    Gracias Hugo por tus gestiones y amabilidad. Esperemos que podamos volver a trabajar contigo.

  24. Hugo Navarrete – Esquire

    In the past, I have dealt with many European professionals. As an American citizen, the issue, really, is the lack of promptness. You never really know what they are doing, if they are working on your case. You have to do this carousel of inquiries to find the status of your case. Communication which needs to be essential is non-existent.

    Our fellow Esquire Hugo Navarrete, has none of the aforementioned qualities.

    A good man, who takes care of business. Most recommended.

  25. Bevor ich unsere ganze Reise mit Hugo an unserer Seite schildere, möchte ich sagen, dass Hugo nicht nur ein absoluter Experte in seinem Bereich ist sondern auch ein sehr emphatischer Mensch, dem es daran liegt das Richtige zu tun und seinen Kunden zu helfen.

    Wir haben eine wahre Achterbahn der Gefühle mit Hugo erlebt. Dies lag an einem sehr unglücklichen ersten Wohnungskaufversuch und einem danach geglückten Wohnungskauf.

    Unsere Zusammenarbeit mit Hugo hat über ein halbes Jahr gedauert. Wir hatten eine Wohnung in Barcelona gefunden, die wir kaufen wollten und alles hatte friedlich angefangen bis es leider eine Wende genommen und der Verkäufer sich aus dem Kauf zurück gezogen hatte, ohne uns die Anzahlung zurückzuzahlen. Ich möchte hier nicht alle Details nennen, nur dass es eine sehr schwierige Phase im ganzen Prozess war, die von Ungewissheit, Angst und Wut geprägt war. Die Machenschaften des Verkäufers haben uns nicht nur viel Geld aber auch unzählige schlaflose Nächte gekostet und hätten wir Hugo nicht an unserer Seite gehabt, wäre die Anzahlung nun komplett verloren. Auch wenn wir uns auf ein Gerichtsverfahren vorbereiten, kann ich sagen, dass Hugo uns den ganzen Prozess lang bestens beraten hat, sodass wir alle Schritte getroffen haben, um einen soliden Gerichtsfall mit Aussicht auf Erfolg aufzubauen. Dieser Fall hat uns bisher wirklich viele Nerven gekostet und wir waren an einigen Tiefpunkten angelangt – Hugo hat uns jedoch stets mit professionellen Ratschlägen, aufbauenden Worten, Mitgefühl und der Entschlossenheit das Richtige zu tun zur Seite gestanden. Er war immer für uns da, egal ob zu später Stunde oder bei Frage Nr. 100. Wir konnten uns immer an ihn wenden und konnten darauf vertrauen, dass er sich so schnell wie möglich mit Ratschlägen und Antworten bei uns meldet.

    Trotz der unglücklichen Situation haben wir uns ein zweites Mal getraut und einen erfolgreichen Wohnungskauf abgeschlossen. Man konnte sehen wie auch Hugo sich aufrichtig für uns gefreut hat.

    An dieser Stelle möchte ich sagen, wie glücklich wir sind mit Hugo zusammenzuarbeiten. Hugo ist ein sehr emphatischer und gutherziger Mensch, der leidenschaftlich hinter seiner Arbeit steht. Wir haben uns von Anfang an gut aufgehoben gefühlt, ihm vertraut und auf sein Expertise zählen können. Dafür sind wir unendlich dankbar!! Ich hätte nie gedacht, dass wir so eine Beziehung zu einem Anwalt aufbauen würden, was jedoch schnell passiert wenn einem jemand mit so viel Menschlichkeit begegnet.

    Vielen vielen Dank Hugo!!

  26. Jag fann Hugo Navarrete på siten: ”lawyers anf solicitors list provided by the Irish Consulate in Barcelona.ie”.
    Jag anlitade honom för ett tänkt fastighetsköp i Santa Coloma, Barcelona, sommaren 2021. Denna affär blev inte av då vi, i tid, upptäckte oegentligheter hos den aktuelle mäklaren.

    Vi började därför söka efter ett nytt köpobjekt och fann, sen höst 2021, en lägenhet i Badalona som både jag och min dotter gillade skarpt. Hugo drog igång nödvändiga aktiviteter men vi föll på mållinjen då säljaren backade ur på grund av formaliteter som hon absolut ville ha ordning på innan hon kunde tänka sig en försäljning. (Antalet kvadratmetrar registrerade hos Skattemyndigheten avvek från de registrerade i Fastighetsregistret.)

    I juni 2022 hade detta åtgärdats av säljaren som ånyo la ut lägenheten till försäljning. Vi hoppade på direkt med stöd av Hugo som var en klippa att hjälpa oss med massor av praktikaliteter (alla myndighetskontakter inklusive skattemyndigheten, fullmakt hos Notarius Publicus, bankkontakter, kontakter med leverantörer för övertagande av kontrakt gällande el, vatten och gas m.m.). Den 27 juli tog vi formellt över lägenheten från säljaren.

    Affären tycktes vara i hamn, men Hugo menade att den inte var det förrän vi fått lagfarten.
    Lagfarten fick Hugo tillhanda den 16 november 2022. Då först fakturerade han mig enligt ursprunglig offert från sommaren 2021, eftersom han ville att allt skulle vara klart och ”vattentätt avslutat” innan han tog betalt.

    I december 2022 tog jag Hugos hjälp igen för att upprätta ett spanskt testamente då lägenheten i Badalona skall ärvas av min dotter som enskild egendom den dagen jag går bort. Även detta fixade Hugo på ett föredömligt sätt. Testamentet är nu officiellt lagfört och registrerat hos Notarius Publicus.

    Hugo Navarrete är professionell och kompetent. Han har bra försänkningar hos Notarius Publicus, vilket underlättat möjligheten till fysiska möten vid mina korta besök i Barcelona. Han är lätt att kommunicera med på engelska och han svarar alltid inom kort på mail och meddelanden. Dessutom är han en sympatisk, varm och empatisk medmänniska samtidigt som han noga håller isär rollerna som jurist/privatperson.
    Hugo är väldigt lätt att ha att göra med. Han har visat ett fantastiskt tålamod med alla mina Excelfiler som jag bett honom komplettera, mina problem att logga in på olika katalanska hemsidor och allehanda andra frågor jag haft som förstagångsköpare av fastighet i utlandet. Jag rekommenderar honom varmt!

  27. Una perla di correttezza ed onestà fra una marea di avvocati …un avvocato come lui è molto difficile da trovare io ho avuto la fortuna di trovarlo e di essere diventato suo cliente. É una persona diretta capace di entrare con il cuore in mano nelle vicende dei suoi assistiti, estremamente corretto e disponibile. Consiglio al 100%

  28. Merci à Hugo pour son aide et son professionnalisme en droit immobilier.
    Contacté pour clarifier les clauses d’un bail, il s’est montré rapidement disponible et ce, malgré le peu de temps qui nous était imparti.
    Sa franchise, ses réponses rapides et claires m’ont rassurée et ont répondu à mes attentes. Autrement dit, c’est un avocat de confiance.
    Je recommande donc vivement ses services ! Merci encore.

  29. We recently bought a property in Sitges and needed a lawyer. My husband found Hugo recommended on the British Consulate website. We were living in Germany and found Hugo very responsive via email in the run up to coming over here. He very diligently and expertly dealt with the very complicated paperwork and accompanied us to both of our appointments with the notary. We consistently felt that Hugo was on our side and working very hard in our best interests, through some complicated negotiations with the notary. We trusted him completely to do what was best for us, and to know the exact details of the laws. Moreover, Hugo gives a very personal service; he is kind and open, and even wowed our sons with his magic tricks! He shared our special first afternoon in our new house with us, something we will always remember. We could not have completed the house purchase without him, and feel very lucky that we found him. Thank you, Hugo!

  30. When leaving our prior rental apartment, our landlord tried to mandate we pay a penalty that the rental agent told us at contract signing was not applicable to us. This resulted in a contractual dispute which required legal expertise, which is how we ended working with Hugo. His help was exactly what we needed and he was very effective at negotiating with the landlord’s legal team to resolve our issue. Ultimately it was a favorable outcome for us, and this is primarily due to Hugo’s efforts. We would highly recommend him to any that could need similar legal support!

  31. I was struggling to get an answer to a simple but quite specific question about taxes when purchasing a property in Barcelona. Many lawyers made me wait for 1+ months for what was a matter of 3 minutes max. Thank god I found Hugo. I was hoping for a timely paid consultation with him but he simply responded to my email with the answer I was looking for! Just this shows that Hugo is a professional that does NOT look to take advantage of clients but is actually eager to help and do quality work. Thanks!

  32. I am from Wales, UK. In March 2022 I was in the process of purchasing a property in Salou, Catalunya and was initially unsure about whether to hire a solicitor – I am now very glad I did. I made a small search on the web and found 2 or 3 potential candidates.

    Hugo replied to my enquiry promptly and in very good English which immediately gave me confidence. He is a native Spanish/Catalan speaker too. Once our discussions started he advised all of his costs, the legal activity process and that I would not have to make a payment until I was fully satisfied at the closure of the deal and formalities (which can be quite protracted in Spain).

    We started to encounter some difficulties with the purchase. Firstly from my personal perspective I was not getting the best of support or information from the estate agents, and, the seller could also be a bit difficult to deal with at times. Hugo always answered my questions promptly when I posed questions to him regarding these issues. There were problems with the registration of the property with the local authorities as some years ago two apartments had been converted to one and the registrations of these were not complete. Hugo advised me of all the possible options of how best to navigate this problem along with risks and related costs. Based on that we developed a suitable forward plan. We also discussed at length whether to purchase the property in my name or my two grown-up sons. Close to the final stage of completion of Contracts with the Notary, Hugo noticed a couple of clauses in the Contract written by the Notary that were disadvantageous and he insisted during our final meeting that these were changed. Very professional work! Finally, after full completion, the buyer has 30 days to pay the tax on the property to the authorities. After around 14 days of the 30 days allowed I was in Salou and suffered a heart attack and was hospitalised for some time and unable to complete the payment (big problem). Hugo, under his own suggestion, very kindly offered to make the tax payment (quite a significant amount) on my behalf and that I could repay this when I was fit and well. We proceeded on that basis.

    I would have no problem in recommending Hugo to act as your legal council. He was always professional, spoke excellent English, kept information flowing and was very generous in his help with the tax problem.

    The only downside is that he is a Norwich City AFC supporter 🙂

  33. Testimonial for Hugo Navarette 19/07/2022

    My name is Abbie Nisbet- although better known as Abi Fantastic- An English Artist now living in Spain!
    I have recently been though the whole process of buying my new home in Premia de Mar, on the coast just up from Barcelona. I thought and heard from other people that the whole experience of buying property in Spain can be a very stressful, taxing and a very frustrating thing. Thanks to Hugo this was not the case!
    Hugo came from a recommendation from a good friend of mine who has used his services in the past- so I knew from the beginning I was going to be in safe hands. From the first time we met, Hugo’s attitude and persona was relaxed as well as very professional. Just what I needed!
    I am now 33 and this is my first time stepping on the property ladder, so all a bit daunting. The money also came from the loss of my Father- my best friend in the world, which made the whole thing a very emotional journey for me. Hugo was aware of this and I remember the first contract I signed, Hugo was there with me, which made me feel reassured I was signing the right thing- as my Spanish is not the best. I was so elated and happy after that first meeting with him and he even said how proud my Father would be of me! Very kind indeed. The property is perfect for me- with a lovely big roof terrace I will be building my new Art Studio on.
    When Hugo came to see the property for the first time, he was so excited for me and could see exactly the potential I could see, which again made me feel very reassured!
    Of course, at this point I was thinking things were going a bit too smoothly- even though I believed my Father was watching over me- making this dream of mine come true! So, as I mentioned I had the money there ready and waiting to transfer and pay off the previous owner’s mortgage as well as giving him a nice lump sum! – But this caused a bit of a stir with the estate agents and especially the Notary. They questioned where my money had come from and just seemed like all round difficult people to deal with. This made me very nervousespecially with the communication barrier. Hugo was there with me every step of the way… to keep me calm, translate wherever necessary and help guide me through the process. When it actually came to sitting around the table with the previous owner and transferring the money… my hands were shaking and just wanted everything to go as smoothly as possible. Of course, it did not. There was a massive delay with my money getting across and there seemed to be no proof coming through that the payment had been made. The Notary was NOT happy and was saying she may even refuse the sale all together. Hugo was the man of the hour. He
    kept me calm, he kept the Notary calm(ish) and suggested we all go for lunch to take some time and come back and see if the money had cleared. I was getting a flight out of Spain the next day so it really had to be that day! Thankfully the money did clear but still with no receipt. With thanks to Hugo the Notary let us exchange, I was allowed to take my new keys and promise the Notary I would go straight to my bank in the morning before heading to the airport to get them to send over the official receipt and proof of payment. This really
    was all thanks to Hugo’s calm persuasion! I would have been very lost in this moment without him!

    Since then, Hugo has kindly helped me with the final bits…. organising the last fees and payments… and I can honestly say I now have a new lovely friend in him after all of this!

    I will be highly recommending him to any family and friends who may need his lovely calm, professional expertise in the future!

    BIG THANKS Hugo!

    My sincerest gratitude….. Abi Fantastic

  34. I have a problem with a company that has cancelled their services during the COVID19 and refuses to reemburse me. Hugo reviewed the case, discussed the options, options that could be moved by a legal team or by myself. Gave all the support in an accordingly time manner, always helpfull and proactive.

  35. Hugo was a great help.
    Sadly it didnt work out but he guided me through the process and helped me avoid a mistake I otherwise might have done.
    He has been invaluable and I will certainly be working with him again in the future.

    1. Many thans George, in property purchases, searches are crucial, and not always what you want is suitable for what you need to. Better to realise before than after the sale…
      Keep persevering, and good luck.¡
      I am looking forward to the next challenge.

  36. I asked Hugo to help me to get my deposit back when I recently left my flat. I was feeling very anxious because I had paid a large deposit and I had signed a contract 5 years ago without reading it through carefully (mainly because my Spanish is not very good – I am English). Hugo was amazing. He was so calm throughout the whole process and was able to get my entire deposit back. He is an excellent lawyer. I highly recommend him and he is a genuine, kind, and lovely person. Thank you so much Hugo!

  37. Hugo was very responsive and honest. My interaction with him was positive and he replied quickly and answered all my questions. I appreciated his help and if I have any further inquires or need assistance I know who to come to!

  38. Forget about all the clichés you know about lawyers when it comes to Hugo.


    I first met Hugo back in 2003. I had knocked on the door at the Norwegian Consulate in Calle Balmes in Barcelona to tell them that I needed a darn good lawyer as I was going to divorce. Without any hesitation, the Consulate assistant gave me Hugo’s phone number and said:
    – He’s quite young, but he’s very good.
    A few days later I showed up in his office and my scepticism level went way into the red. The office was a worn down mess and behind a desk, in a tiny cage was this very young man (read boy).
    But I quickly grew confident that Hugo was, and still is, someone who listens, he asks the right questions and he genuinely wants what the best solution for you, his client.
    What also really amazed me was that he researched, he would not leave a single stone unturned. This is what made him, as a lawyer, so outstanding and this was his force.
    During the divorce process he was a huge support to me, not only professionally, but on a more personal level too.
    I had moved to Switzerland, and Hugo and I met regularly, more or less every second week, when i visited my three children and even though the divorce process had been moved to Switzerland, we still met regularly for lunch and for a heads up. He even showed up in court in Switzerland to assist my lawyer here.
    Hugo is still actively my lawyer for another matter, but we have also become close friends.
    There are a lot of other good sides with Hugo, but I’ll shut my mouth now, who knows, maybe with time, he might become a real obnoxious and pretentious lawyer… though I have my doubts!

    Bonjour Maître, ça va?


  39. Hugo managed the conveyancing of my flat in Poble Sec in Barcelona. He also managed the original purchase of the property and I had no doubt I wanted Hugo to organise the legal part of the sale. There were some tricky issues with the sale but Hugo managed each step efficiently and creatively, advising liaising clearly with the buyer’s lawyer throughout the process. As I live in Munich Hugo acted for me using powers of attorney which meant I did not have to come to Barcelona. This was a great help. Hugo is the ultimate professional. He has a deep knowledge of the legal system and advises you at every stage what is required and where you are with the process.

  40. Se avete bisogno non solo di un avvocato ma di una Persona Hugo é la persona corretta. Oltre alla sua professionalità ed alla sua esperienza , é un interlocutore in grado di comprendere la delicatezza delle situazioni, gestirle al meglio e garantire i vostri diritti.
    Nel nostro caso, abbiamo denunciato Philip Morris e sono trascorsi 4 lunghi difficili anni, coscienti che sarebbe Stato così. Hugo É capace di comprendere pienamente i suoi assistiti, di assumere su di sé i loro dolori, di sentire come suo il loro accoramento…tutto questo grazie ad un’innata empatia con il cliente…l’emblema in assoluto del Difensore!!! Con tantissima professionalità, Ha lavorato con orgoglio, ha lottato con dignità e contro il sistema.
    Non smetterò mai di ringraziarlo, nonostante per noi alla fine non è stata fatta giustizia consiglio Hugo come eccellente avvocato che prende a cuore i suoi clienti e un grandissimo difensore dei diritti umani. Per me, abbiamo vinto!

    1. Cara Giulia, che bello. Quando i clienti mi chiedono come vedo un caso, rispondo sempre con la massima onestà e trasparenza; ma dico sempre che il diritto non è una scienza esatta come la matematica. È una scienza che si evolve con il tempo e si adatta ai tempi. Quello che ti è successo è arrivato troppo presto nel tempo e potresti pensare: abbiamo perso. Sì, abbiamo perso, ma non abbiamo davvero perso. Sono assolutamente convinto che non succederà più. Sono scappati per una questione tecnica, ma le cose cambiano, la società cambia e questo si ottiene con lotte come quella che abbiamo avuto noi. Siamo stati pionieri? Non lo so… Chiamatemi ingenuo, ma io credo nella giustizia e quando ho saputo del tuo caso non potevo lasciare che accadesse davanti ai miei occhi, senza agire. Noi siamo i vincitori perché l’atto non si ripeterà. La dignità e l’onore sono il nostro potere perché quando si combatte per una giusta causa, non si combatte solo per se stessi, ma perché la stessa cosa non accada ad altri, si combatte per una società migliore, per il futuro di generazioni che non conosciamo. Abbiamo messo un granello di sabbia per cambiare le cose, e questa è la nostra vittoria, la NOSTRA GRANDE VITTORIA.

  41. Hugo er en hverdagshelt som stiller opp når du trenger advokathjelp i Barcelona. Han har hjulpet meg i min sak med Caixa Bank og diverse andre selskaper. Regelverket rundt kreditt i Spania er til tider komplisert og da er det fantastisk å ha en person som Hugo som strekker seg langt for å hjelpe deg. Anbefaler å kontakte Hugo hvis du trenger advokathjelp i Barcelona.

  42. We are an Irish family (living in Cork Ireland) and Mr Hugo Navarrete has represented us and provided us with legal advice and services over the past 3-4 years. I came to know of Mr Navarrete initially, having been directed to the Irish Dept of Foreign Affairs webpage which provides details of reputable lawyers in different jurisdictions. Since then, we have found Mr Navarrete to be extremely supportive, responsive to our requests and a person of great integrity. He communicates with us in fluent English, often translating Spanish or Catalan not just into English, but simple and comprehensible English. We can recommend Mr Navarrete to other potential clients (especially those who do not speak Spanish/Catalan) wholeheartedly and without reservation.

  43. Hugo is amazing, very approachable and helpful. He cleared all the doubts I had regarding the TIE, student visa and work permit and guided me with approaches to take both on a short and long term basis. Highly recommended.

    Thanks, Hugo!

    1. Thanks, Megha; bright future ahead of you; and hopefully in Spain. Assertive, and talented people like you is what every country needs.
      Best of lucks.¡

  44. Hugo, da diversi anni è il mio referente nell’ambito legale qui a Barcellona. Grazie alla sua immensa professionalità ed alla possibilità di poter comunicare con lui in italiano, è sempre stato di grande aiuto, per risolvere problematiche tanto nel settore lavorativo come in quello immobiliare.
    A volte con semplici consulenze e in altri casi, operando ufficialmente come mio avvocato, per risolvere questioni più complesse.
    Professionale, empatico e concreto!

  45. Hugo est un avocat très proche de ses clients. Il prend le soin de répondre de manière très claire et précise. Je l’ai consulté pour un problème d’immobilier et sa réponse m’a permis d’obtenir gain de cause auprès du promoteur. Son expertise dans le domaine de l’immobilier m’a été extrêment utile, et je le recommande vivement !

  46. Hugo gave me a second opinion on my current case and I got answers and solutions, which I wasn’t given in 18 months! Apart from Hugo being very knowledgeable, he is easy to talk to (regardless of the seriousness of the topic) and his heart is in the right place. I am very pleased I came across him and I definitely 100% recommend his services. 5 stars are nearly not enough! Thank you Hugo!

  47. Muchas gracias Hugo, me enviaron su contacto desde la embajada de Noruega en Madrid para resolver mi caso y me ayudo a encontrar la soluciones que buscaba en poco tiempo. Un gran profesional.

  48. Hugo is a great lawyer and person overall. He genuinely tries to help you with your legal issue and is reassuring when you feel like you are lost in regard to the law in a foreign country. I like to think he is not just my lawyer, but also my friend. I highly recommend him.

  49. Hugo no es el típico abogado de traje y corbata que no siente interés por sus clientes y solo quiere zanjar temas.
    Él se implica y te aclara cualquier duda que tengas para que puedas tomar las decisiones con la mayor de las seguridades.
    Sin duda recomendaría trabajar con él, profesional, serio e implicado.

    1. Muchas gracias Ferrán, un gusto haber podido ayudarte. El conocimiento no lo da ni el traje ni la corbata; el conocimiento no se viste, se lleva y se ejerce. El abogado tiene que ser una persona que te de seguridad, y efectivamente que sea cercana, accesible, que le puedas preguntar tranquilamente y que te entienda, que tengas buena relación que puedas trabajar bien con él, es determinante para generar esa seguridad. Cualquier compraventa significa un desplazamiento de dinero muy importante, y eso genera dudas, inseguridades, que el profesional debe de entender, responder, solucionar y asegurarse que el cliente lo ve y lo entiende.

  50. Ho avuto la fortuna di conoscere l’avvocato Hugo Navarrete grazie ad una conoscente italiana di mia madre. Avevo infatti bisogno di un aiuto perché ero alla ricerca di un appartamento da acquistare e volevo farlo con tutte le precauzioni e le garanzie del caso. Lui con molta professionalità e disponibilità mi ha aiutato a verificare più opportunità di acquisto, dandomi consigli di cui ho potuto apprezzato la validità. Si è dimostrato sempre scrupoloso nella verifica dei documenti ed autorevole nella mediazione con agenzie talvolta rigide e formali nella loro modalità di contrattazione. Con la sua esperienza ed energia positiva è riuscito a farmi superare qualche momento di ansia che prende inevitabilmente chi deve fare un investimento oneroso quanto importante per la propria vita. Infine, quando gli ho chiesto una consulenza per un acquisto in un settore di cui normalmente non si occupa ha declinato con onestà tale incarico. Per tutto questo è il mio avvocato di fiducia.

    1. Carissimo Marco, il tuo sogno di vivere a Barcellona e mettere radici qui si è realizzato e io ti ho aiutato a realizzarlo, il che mi dà grande soddisfazione. È il mio lavoro di avvocato, ma non è solo lavoro, è orgoglio, è passione, è trattare con le persone, con i sentimenti, con le insicurezze. Capire la persona e mettersi nei suoi panni. Pertanto, è il mio orgoglio e la mia soddisfazione di aiutarvi con successo. Il vostro successo è il mio successo. Come dice lei, comprare un immobile in un paese diverso, con usanze diverse, in una lingua straniera, è un’operazione rischiosa perché non si sa cosa si sta facendo.

      È un grande onore essere il suo avvocato di fiducia, lei e la sua famiglia siete persone molto buone. Benvenuti in Spagna, benvenuti a Barcellona.

  51. O Hugo foi me recomendado por um colega que trabalhou com ele. Ambos somos estrangeiros e fazer um investimento fora do nosso país tem um grande peso. A primeira coisa que o colega me disse foi “se pensas comprar uma casa garante que tens um advogado que te ajude em todo o processo, desde o início até ao fim, não esperes para o último momento, nós demoramos e se não fosse pelo Hugo teríamos muitos problemas”. E foi assim que entrei em contacto com o Hugo. Sempre muito professional e experiente, o que me deu total confiança. Visitei imensas casas e ter o Hugo presente nas que eu queria avançar foi crucial para ter em consideração aspectos que a olho nu e sem experiência teria deixado passar não fosse a sua experiência. A sua honestidade (sem interferir na decisão do/a comprador/a) e ética de trabalho também foram pontos de extrema importância para mim visto serem valores que eu mesma comparto.
    Ver a alegria do mesmo ao ver me feliz por adquirir minha primeira propriedade firmaram ainda mais a convicção de que escolhi o advogado e a pessoa correcta para me acompanhar nesta nova jornada como proprietária.

    Um grande obrigado Hugo! Sei que os próximos clientes estão em boas mãos contigo

    1. Ana, muchas gracias por tus palabras.
      Tus palabras y felicidad eran indescriptibles. Tu frase, para la posteridad: “We made it: lo pensamos y lo hicimos. Sky is the limit.” Ana Barros, 9-9-2021.
      Y, ciertamente así fue la alegría era reflejo del largo camino de obstáculos y de lo trabajada y deseada casa.
      Mis mas sinceras felicitaciones además de ser un gran honor haber participado y aportado ese grano de arena para contribuir a esa felicidad. “Quien la sigue, la consigue”. Hugo

  52. Hugo is one of the best lawyers I’ve worked with. He’s very smart, he has a high legal knowledge and he is very committed with the client. And the most important, he is a very reialable person who you can totally trust your legal issues. He will always fight for your interests.

  53. We have known Hugo for nearly 20 years and I can quite honestly say he is a Legend! He helped us with the purchases of our house and a flat in Andorra and made the process completely painless bota times despite the fact that we spoke not a word of Spanish. He explained everything clearly and made sure there not any hidden pitfalls.
    Yesterday however he completely excelled himself when we sold the house. Without his help the sale would likely have been postponed for at least two months. His ameliorative charm and knowledge of ways around things saved the day as he managed to persuade a very cross notario out of a decision that nothing could be done.
    He is just simply the best. And our buyer is going to use him in future!
    We couldn’t possibly thank or recommend him enough. LEGEND says it all.

  54. I have no hesitation in recommending Hugo Navarrete to you.
    His knowledge, experience and understanding of “The Spanish Way” is unsurpassed.
    His opinions are honest and always helpful in solving any problems, and his English is exceptional in explaining everything that is or could be happening.
    He is quite simply “The Best”. To us he is known as “The Legend that is Hugo”.
    If you have Hugo at your side, you will have the best outcome possible.

  55. Hugo responded very promptly to a call regarding a family matter and we found him to be objective and clear in his initial appraisal of the problem. He followed up immediately with an email setting out his thoughts which has helped a lot.

    As a professional myself, it is somewhat rare these days to be able to engage quickly with someone who is obviously experienced in not only the Law, but on a practical basis.

    I would highly recommend Hugo and he is a natural communicator and someone I would use going forward.

  56. Having found Mr. Navarrete as a recommended lawyer by the Irish Consulate here in Barcelona. I can say I was extremely happy with the service provided. Mr. Navarrete, was extremely professional, and ensured that the process met the highest legal standards for both Spain and Ireland.

    1. Many thanks, Kevin; and thanks to the Irish Consulate in Barcelona too, for recommending me as a solicitor in Barcelona. What an honor that is¡. I am humbly delighted.

  57. Como vendedor de mi apartamento he conocido a Hugo como el abogado del comprador de una familia inglesa.
    He de decir que la comunicación fue muy fluida y sobre todo muy resolutivo con los problemas que siempre aparece en una venta como esta.
    Recomendable 100 x 100. Me saco el sombrero.

    1. Hola José Manuel, en primer lugar muchísimas gracias por tus palabras, y con tu gesto de sacarte el sombrero, yo también me lo saco para aplaudir a un caballero. No solo por el mensaje, que ya es motivo de satisfacción y orgullo profesional; sino porque no trabajaba para tí, tu eras mi oponente. Debo de reconocer que cuando en el otro lado hay buena gente, todo es más facil. Una nota para el recuerdo que resume tu comportamiento y que ilustra el por qué yo también me saco el sombrero ante tí: justo unos días antes de la venta fuiste a pasar la revisión de la caldera; de una caldera que no vas a utilizar porque estás vendiendo, pagando de tu propio bolsillo. ¿Tenías que hacerlo?, la respuesta es no. ¿Habría pasado algo de no hacerlo? no. El mensaje es mucho mas profundo, sabes que entra una familia llena de ilusión, con niños pequeños, y quieres que estén a gusto.
      Detalles así no pasan desapercibidos.
      Eres de esas personas que vende porque la vida te lleva por otros caminos, pero que realmente quieres y deseas que el que compre tenga esa misma experiencia y sea feliz donde tu lo fuiste. Gracias.

  58. Hugo did a fantastic and professional job during my recent purchase of a property in Spain. He made what I though would be a daunting experience enjoyable as we navigated through the process and I learnt a lot… thanks Hugo

  59. Mi caso no fue sencillo, recibí una multa por parte del ayuntamiento de 60.001€ por alquilar la vivienda como piso turístico a través de la plataforma Airbnb. Contacté con Hugo a través de una amiga. Fue el primer abogado de varios que se miró el caso de forma debida, a otros que fuimos para informarnos decían directamente que el caso estaba perdido.

    Después de este largo proceso, puedo decir que Hugo no solo es un excelente abogado, desde el primer momento ha mostrado su empatía, flexibilidad, y amabilidad. Su profesionalidad y experiencia me transmitió tranquilidad durante los dos años del proceso. Siempre ha estado disponible para cualquier llamada o mensaje, siendo claro a la hora de traducir terminología legal a un vocabulario fácil de comprender.

    El caso finalizó con éxito, Hugo ha sabido muy bien qué camino tomar, el tiempo del cual teníamos y los documentos precisos para obtener una respuesta positiva.
    Después de esta experiencia definitivamente Hugo Navarrete se lleva mi agradecimiento y una excelente recomendación.

    Muchas gracias Hugo!

  60. We hired Hugo as our lawyer in 2017 in connection with an apartment purchase in Spain.

    It turned out to be a wonderfully good choice.

    For four years he has worked for our cause and been our connection with the real estate developer and the bank in Spain.

    The case was happily resolved in our favor this May.

    We are so deeply grateful for Hugo’s unstoppable commitment – we would have felt completely helpless without his efforts.

    We can warmly recommend Hugo to whoever it is, he kept our hopes up with good, useful and constructive communication in an always pleasant way.

    We give him our best recommendations.

  61. Vi kjøpte en leilighet i Barcelona i 2017, den skulle være ferdig i 2019, men det ble den dessverre ikke.
    Vi valgte da å trekke oss fra kjøpet.

    Det tok lang tid å få tilbake pengene, men uten Hugo, som er en veldig dyktig og hyggelig advokat, er vi redd vi ikke hadde klart å få tilbake vårt innskudd.

    Mitt råd er å ikke kjøpe noe i Spania uten advokat.
    Bruk hjerne Hugo – han er en fin type.

  62. We wisten eerst niet zeker of het nodig was om een advocaat in te huren bij de aankoop van ons huis. Maar wat zijn we blij dat we dit wel hebben gedaan. Hugo heeft ervoor gezorgd dat alles goed geregeld en geregistreerd was voor de aankoop. Dit was namelijk niet het geval en heeft ons een hoop ellende gescheeld.
    We konden Hugo altijd bellen, maar hij reageerd ook snel via de e-mail. Dit gaf ons een vertrouwd gevoel tijdens het gehele proces. Wat het extra fijn maakte was zijn oprechte enthousiasme voor ons project. Tot slot was het voor ons handig dat hij kon vertalen bij de notaris, aangezien we de Spaanse taal nog niet volledig beheersen.

  63. Hugo heeft ons geweldig bij gestaan bij het aankopen van onze eerste huis in Aragón. Ondanks dat dit waarschijnlijk een wat ander huis is dan normaal heeft hij alles gedaan om onze zorgen te ontnemen en vragen te beantwoorden.
    Hugo brengt ook oprechte interesse en vriendelijkheid mee, wat ons gevoel bij de koop ook echt verbeterde.
    Als je een goede advocaat zoekt, heb je ‘m hier gevonden!

  64. Um profissional de mão cheia!!! Sempre que tenho qualquer tipo de problema e/ou dúvida jurídica recorro a Hugo para esclarecer-las. Muito atencioso e também cuidadoso com todos os detalhes, ele consegue perceber com imparcialidade a real necessidade e como atuar. E a consequência disso é que gera muita, mas muita confiança. Obrigado.

  65. Hugo is not only a great lawyer but also brings a friendliness that you want by your side in stressful times. I found Hugo through the Gov UK website recommendations and I completely see why he is there.

    From the word go he made us feel confident in our house purchase which went through safely and without hiccups which I would like to make clear really was down to Hugo – 10/10.

  66. Hugo is a fantastic lawyer – don’t be fooled by his casual, suit-less style! He helped me get out of nearly being fined an outrageous sum of money by the local municipal gov’t., by spotting and proving/arguing that they were using intimidation tactics to try and “catch” me, without having any of the proper proof they needed. I was completely absolved of any wrongdoing because he threw the text of law in their face and they had no recourse! He has also been hugely helpful as a consultant on other issues. I HIGHLY recommend Hugo and will use him again and again in the future whenever I need an attorney in Barcelona.

  67. Hugo was extremely quick and efficient when helping me with a legal issue regarding a residence in Barcelona. He dealt with my problem with great professionalism and he pursued my claim with great importance and acclaim. Hugo speaks in fluent English, therefore he was able to assist me with great precision and efficiency. He made me feel confident and respected as a client and I would highly recommend him to others. An all round great professional!

  68. Mange tak til Hugo for klar og præcis kommunikation og rådgivning på godt engelsk.
    Rådgivningen var desuden ærlig med en fornuftig holdning til hvornår det egner sig at bruge en advokat eller en anden instans til at få hjælp. Meget nyttigt.

    1. 因为着手购买第一套房产我们开始寻找律师,和丈夫在gov.uk找到推荐Hugo 律师的信息,并且翻看这里的留言,心里已经对他很信任了。因为合同繁杂,我们也没有买房经验,Hugo 律师真的是翻看了所有文件,并在和中介以及卖家的会谈中为我们找到合同中不合理的细节,反应很迅速,也很负责,让我们也免去了很多买房中随时可能踩踏的陷阱。随时和我们电话以及邮件沟通,英文很好,交流方便,专业性十足。真的很值得信赖和推荐!

  69. Hugo made the whole process of buying a flat in Barcelona super easy, his knowledge of the whole process and all the potential pitfalls was invaluable in making the experience stress-free. And to top it off he’s a really nice person!

  70. Hugo took the stress out of buying our first flat in Barcelona. He is extremely professional and knowledgeable but at the same time friendly and supportive. He was very generous with his time, accompanying us to various meetings, and making sure to explain each step of the process to us along the way. If you are looking for a trustworthy and diligent lawyer in Spain I would not hesitate to recommend him. Thank you Hugo for all of your help!

  71. Hugo Navarrete nagyon lelkiismeretesen végzi a munkáját. Tiszteletre méltó, hogy szabad idejébenm akár szombat este is rendelkezésre áll, ha szüksége van rá az ügyfelének. Nagyon szimpatikus és közvetlen, ugyanakkor ez nem megy a szakmaiság rovására. Spanyolországi magyarként nagyon megkönnyíti a helyzetemet az, hogy angolul tudok vele kommunikálni. Külön jó pont, hogy gondolatait úgy tudja megfogalmazni, hogy a joghoz nem értő személy is könnyedén megérthesse, és az adott problémát és a lehetséges megoldási módokat mindig jól körüljárja és minden eshetőséget számításba vesz.

  72. Thank you Hugo for your help. Not many lawyers would have picked up the phone on a Saturday evening to give us advice for free. Hugo was really knowledgeable and offered a number of ways I can solve my issue. His English was perfect which is a huge bonus for people who do not speak Spanish.

  73. After finding his details from a list provided by the British Consulate, I contacted him to see if he could help certify my identity.

    Hugo responded quickly, and by the following day I had everything I needed. True professional,. He’s also super nice and friendly to boot.

    Thanks again Hugo, and if I, or anyone I know, needs help, then I’ll be sure to pass on your name.

  74. Vi har kjent Hugo siden 2011 da han bistod oss ved kjøp av vår leilighet i Poble Sec, Barcelona. Det var meglerfirmaet CasaMona i Barcelona v/Tina Mathiassen som anbefalte ham for oss. Vi har nå kjent ham i 10 år og han er i tillegg til å være vår advokat og administrator av vår bolig i Barcelona – blitt en god venn. Hans profesjonalitet, tilgjengelighet, omfattende språkkunnskaper, personlige integritet og tiltalende vesen, gjør ham til en for oss uunnværlig ressursperson som bidrar til stor trygghet når vi har en bolig på avstand. Det er et stykke mellom Tromsø og Barcelona! Vi gir ham våre beste anbefalinger og er tilgjengelig for muntlig utdyping av vår relasjon til Hugo hvis noen ønsker dette.

  75. Здравствуйте!Я очень рекомендую Hugo как адвоката ,он профессионал в своем деле.С его помощью мне удалось решить все вопросы по оренде жилья в Барселоне.С первый консультации Hugo даст вам правильные ответы на ваши вопросы, вместе с ним вы обдумаете стратегию дальнейших действий

  76. I highly recommend Hugo for whatever legal issues you’ve having. I’m fortunate to have met him. He’s helped me recently through two important and stressful situations, regarding real estate and work, respectively. He’s really incredibly knowledgeable about a lot of things. He responded quickly and patiently to my endless questions and made sure I felt completely comfortable with what was decided. Without him I would have lost my mind. He will always be my go-to lawyer here.

  77. Conocí a Hugo Navarrete por recomendación de amigos, y ante la necesidad de resolver una reclamación que parecía no tener fin. Gracias a su dedicación, paciencia para explicármelo todo, y su criterio altamente profesional, el asunto está encaminado. Definitivamente, lo recomiendo!

  78. 在西班牙居住遇到法律问题往往会比在自己国家彷徨很多倍,这也是很多外国人为什么就算有胜诉把握也会放弃争取该有的权力的原因,除了法律专业还有语言专业问题,能找到有经验有责任心的律师是关键。很幸运能通过朋友推荐认识了又专业又靠谱的Hugo律师,将近三年来的接触总是让人那么定心和有信心。起先以为有名的大律师事务所会更好些,所以最早并没有委托他,跟大律师事务所接触后才明白:我的案子的大部分的工作都是由助理律师在做,而这是跟Hugo律师接触后才明白经验和耐心的重要性,他总能在诉讼过程的紧张和忐忑不安的时候站在前面替我抵挡一切,从初审到高级法院的次次胜诉足以证明他的实力和担当,感谢Hugo律师一路所作出的努力和付出!此时言语已经显得苍白无力。

  79. I firmly recommend Hugo Navarette to all people who need a competent, hard-working and trustworthy solicitor to help them with their financial, property and administrative problems.
    We have known Hugo for several years now and he has helped us considerably.
    We do not now live in Spain, and we have had a small flat in Barcelona for several years, which has served our family extremely well. Local administrative problems over the years, and the eventual sale of the apartment, have posed serious problems for us. Hugo was always there, and we got through a number of difficulties with success !
    Hugo, Thank you !

  80. Absolutely recommended : I have know Hugo for over 15 years and he has recently helped me on a recent case involving ‘financial mis-management’ (understatement) by a company of our family’s savings/pensions. He has been absolutely brilliant in his development of a strong case, his representation in the Hearings and actually in his support personally, in what have been difficult circumstances. In fact he has a reputation for succes in fighting for the rights of individuals against the institutions (Google him!), so is actually much more than a lawyer who manages property transactions. Having said that his first job for us was as our lawyer who initially helped us avoid a nightmare property purchase in Spain and ultimately guided us through to a succesful acquisition of our new home here. The difference that you will find in Hugo is that, beyond attributes of excellent attention to detail and creative thinking (useful in complex cases!), he is someone who cares for his client and will always have their best interests at heart.

  81. Hugo siempre nos ha ayudado y asesorado en las dudas sobre temas legales que hemos tenido en la comunidad, principalmente en la gestión de un propietario moroso.

  82. En febrero de este año comence los trámites para la compra de un inmueble en Barcelona justo antes de la erupción del Covid, me motivo comprarlo por nuestro amor a Barcelona y porque el banco nos aseguro verbalmente que sí concedía la hipoteca, posteriormente la deniega dejándome sin hipoteca y con las arras entregadas. Eran momentos de mucho nerviosismo y desconcierto, con el peligro real de perder el dinero entregado en arras. Mi sobrino que vive alli me puso en contacto con el abogado Hugo Navarrete, quien fue clave. No solo aportó tranquilidad, sino experiencia y conocimiento para garantizar que el dinero entregado en arras no se perdiera por falta de financiación. La inmobiliaria nunca dijo que tenía el derecho de recuperar el dinero entregado en arras, y el notario aún no había aparecido en escena porque no estábamos en condiciones de escriturar. Siendo yo argentino y no viviendo alli fue muy duro pero gracias a Hugo Navarrete se pudo resolver.Sin duda, recomiendo sus servicios.

  83. I cannot recommend Hugo highly enough. He went above and beyond to ensure our house sale was successful, which we conducted during the lockdown in both Spain and the UK. He is highly professional and skilled at negotiation, while also being very considerate and understanding. I was consulted every step of the way and Hugo was very patient while explaining all the intricacies of Spanish law. I always felt I was in very good hands and this proved to be the case when we were very successful in obtaining our full settlement in very adverse conditions. Thank you Hugo.

  84. Conocí a Hugo a través de unos familiares.
    Contacté con él buscando asesoramiento legal y fue determinante para ganar en el juicio contra mi empresa, siendo esta una administración pública, a la que reclamaba sobre mi situación laboral.
    La distancia que físicamente nos separa, más de 500 km., no ha sido ningún impedimento para que se implicara en el caso, siendo sus consejos, estrategia y asesoramiento de cara a la presentación de pruebas, testimonios y demás, los que marcaron la diferencia.
    Sin duda, un gran profesional.

  85. Throughout my career I have been dealing with over 10 lawyers in many diverse cases. Based on my experience, I can say that Hugo really stands out.
    First of all, he cares about his clients and he is passionate about defending their rights. He has a sharp mind and goes beyond if needed.
    Even though my initial conversation with him was positive, I was doubtful of accepting his terms of a fixed fee, as it felt like diving into the unknown without a tangible outcome.
    Of course no outcome can be guaranteed, but he will offer you dedication and quality legal services.
    He was worth every penny (or euro).
    Thank you.

  86. I found Hugo to be very kind and helpful when seeking advice regarding exchanging a UK drivers licence for a Spanish one. Even though there was no actual work in it for him, he made sure and returned my call, giving sincere and useful advice. I’d definitely consider approaching him for legal advice, support in the future.

  87. Hugo is genuine and trustworthy person, I highly recommend his services.

    I engaged him for help with a Spanish landlord and he really helped me, even going the extra mile. He is extremely responsive and reliable.

  88. Hugo helped me out at very short notice when I needed a contract prepared to rent my flat In Barcelona. He is very helpful, and responds rapidly. I have no hesitation in recommending his services. Thanks Hugo!

  89. Hugo helped assist me in buying a private property in Barcelona. He has considerable knowledge regarding the property sector and felt relaxed knowing everything was in his control. I would recommend Hugo to anyone!

  90. Hugo has been of great help dealing with my agency. He is very knowledgeable and most importantly, very honest and pleasant to work with. I would definitely recommend him.

  91. 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.

  92. 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.

    1. Hva kan man si om en fantastisk person som Hugo, som vil gi en korrekt oppfatning av han som advokat, person, venn, medmenneske m.m?!
      Jeg kom I kontakt med Hugo Navarrete i 2003, igjennom Det Norske utenriksdepartement og spanske konsulat Barcelona.
      Jeg hadde behov for advokat i en fæl barnefordelinsak, hvor mor hadde holdt barnet skjult for meg i 1 år. Dette var en opprivende og vanskelig sak, men Hugo jobbet iherdig med saken og ordnet en god fordeling, samt at jeg ble gitt delt foreldreansvar. Hugo behandlet meg som en person og ikke bare som en vilkårlig klient. Jeg ble godt kjent med Hugo og hans familie, som åpnet sitt hjem og hjerter for meg i en vanskelig tid. Hugo var rolig, høflig, forståelsesfull, kjærlig, trøstende og åpen. Det var lett og bli glad i Hugo og vi har vært venner siden.

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.

  102. 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.
