Welex has an experienced team of litigation lawyers committed to ongoing training and ready to defend your interests and offer you the best solution to your dispute, either by extrajudicially settling the conflict or by defending you in the Spanish courts to resolve the case.


Our lawyers will assist you with your legal problem, always offering clear and precise information about the procedure.

We offer legal advice and consultancy services in the following fields:

Employment law.
Family law: separation and divorce.
Civil law: obligations and contracts, claims for payment.
Tax law: tax counselling.
Criminal law: crime against individuals, financial offences.

Set up according to the Spanish constitution as a social and democratic state of law, the Spanish legal system has defined the state’s judicial power in Title VII. In this title, the sources of justice are the people, and justice is administered in the name of the king by judges and magistrates who are members of the judicial power, independent, immovable, responsible and subject only to the rule of law.

The legal framework set out by the Spanish Constitution is complemented by the Organic Law of the Judicial Power, which establishes the jurisdictional organisation for the purposes of the administration of justice.

Thus, this regulation outlines the five major branches of law used for resolving intersubjective conflicts through this heterocompositive system, as follows:

  • Civil
  • Criminal
  • Contentious-administrative
  • Social
  • Military

The legal system’s configuration completes the jurisdictional organisation with the law of demarcation and judicial organisation that provides certainty in the determination of the ordinary judge predetermined by the law as a guarantee of the fundamental right to obtain effective judicial protection of citizens in article 24 of Spain’s constitutional text.

Now that the intersubjective conflict has been discussed, the Spanish legal system sets out a series of procedural laws to address different issues. In this way, the civil procedural act has its relative specialities in special laws, such as the voluntary jurisdiction law; the criminal procedural act; the law on jury courts, which are reserved to prosecute certain crimes of special significance; law on penal liability of minors; law on contentious-administrative jurisdiction; and law on military jurisdiction.

All of these laws regulate the different procedures of the sector of the legal system to which the intersubjective conflict is constrained.

All of the above means that knowledge of the procedural law is an essential element when facing a heterocompositive solution (that is, when a third party is not the defendant or plaintiff in the procedure and has no stand in the litigation) within which the lawsuit must be resolved.

In Spain, our multilingual law firm relies on highly qualified professionals and collaborators in these sectors of the legal system — they can give you the necessary counselling and assistance before the court, and you can rest assured they are competent and know of the lawsuit and different jurisdictional instances, both in Spain and abroad.
