About Us

Add a subtitle in Customizer, "About us section"
“Cross-Border Advocates” is a group of international lawyers working together as a co-operative community.

We are not a law firm or any other legal entity. Many of us are self-employed or work for a small law firm.

We come from Spain, France, Slovenia, Slovakia, Portugal, Finland, Colombia, Venezuela and Turkey. We also have good connections in the Czech Republic, Scotland, Germany and Italy.

Our purpose is to provide cross-border legal services with the highest quality. We concentrate on small and medium-sized companies having legal problems abroad. We aim to break down the barriers to contacting a foreign lawyer. Our customers only need to contact a lawyer in their home countries to get started. For our clients, our model is very cost-effective as they get quality international legal services with reasonable and competitive prices.

In addition to the specializations of our members, we have extensive knowledge in the fields of International Commercial Law, International Commercial Arbitration, Cross-border Insolvency and Anti-Money Laundering.

All our members have international experience. All of us have a foreign law degree or work experience abroad. Our biggest asset is that we (or most of us) know each other on a personal level. We are proud to say that we are not just another “international group” established for business purposes.

We offer our clients a sophisticated approach with a human touch. Our aim is to provide comprehensive legal advice to assist our clients with their business ventures abroad.
