Civil law is the basis of all areas of private law. In most European countries civil law is embedded in civil law codes that include many rules that govern our daily life. Think of transactions like the sale and purchase of goods or real estate, rent, acquisition, mortgages, tort, product liability, incorporations, inheritances, consumer protection, contracting and many more issues.
When doing business or anything else in Spain, you immediately touch upon various aspects of Spanish civil law. To be prepared and to avoid unnecessary mistakes, we recommend that you contact a lawyer before you start any activity or enter into any activity.
Labour law also forms part of civil law. Due to its social impact, even beyond the interests of individual employers and employees, it earned a place as an independent area of law, characterised by its very specific rules and regulations.

In Spain, the law is strictly and literally interpreted. In the Spanish system, general principles such as fairness or principles of good governance often do not exist or are limited in application.
