Personalized. International Experience (especially Europe and Americas) Fast and creative service. Proactive solutions that allow you to plan and anticipate. Strong mainly in Fiscal and Mercantile.’

‘Personalized treatment, very professional and in constant search for solutions and long-term planning. Partner Ernesto Lacambra.’

‘Top notch client service and partner level engagement. Flexibility and willingness to provide support above and beyond pure written scope of work. Reasonable billing.’

‘David Navarro is a subject matter expert, but given the arcane and complex nature of Spanish tax law, is not afraid to defer a question pending further research, reverting in a timely manner once he has done the necessary research. David is also a master of distilling complex and difficult to understand tax concepts into brief notes which a non-lawyer and non-tax expert can understand. This is particularly impressive as he is also translating from Spanish and Catalan to English at the same time.’
