Thus, our lawyers and collaborators provide legal advice in cases of insolvency and crisis affecting companies, but mainly individuals, whether they are entrepreneurs, professionals or just individuals (not related to business).


Debt forgiveness and the second chance law

Through the mechanism provided for in the second chance law in Spain, it is possible for unpaid debts to be cancelled, and for a debtor to be able to start again.

This is known as the BEPI, or benefit of exoneration of unsatisfied liabilities.

Through this, it is possible for a person who has been declared insolvent, even if he or she has not been able to pay all the debts, those that remain outstanding, to be forgiven. But in order to do so, he or she must meet a series of requirements that you can consult on our website.

The idea is that the debtor can start again, without debts. Allowing those who have been ruined or bankrupted, to be able to start new business or activities.

It is this forgiveness of debts, normally the main objective in the case of natural persons or individuals; in insolvency proceedings, and thanks to the second chance law.


Express insolvency proceedings

This is an insolvency proceeding that starts and ends immediately, as it is evident that there are insufficient assets to pay the costs of the process. The aim is to save time and money for the parties involved in the insolvency proceedings.

You can obtain more information about the bankruptcy express, its requirements, etc.
