bln palao abogados is a boutique law firm recently created, specialized in providing tax advisory services to companies and, in particular, VAT, Customs, Excise and Environmental Duties advice. After more than thirteen years of professional experience focused on those specific taxes, a new idea came up: to create a unique law firm really specialized in those topics that looks for its specific place within the Spanish legal market.
At bln palao abogados we try to provide our clients with a tailored made service, with high quality standards because of our specific knowledge and our high-level specialization.
We are aware that today, clients are looking for high added value services at moderated prices. Therefore, we believe in the team specialization and in the involvement of people with a large experience, so that we can hold a close and open relationship with our clients, maintaining our quality standards.
At bln palao abogados, we want that our clients feel comfortable with us. Our work methodology is based on three key elements:
On one hand, we comply with the commitments acquired with our clients.
On the other hand, we want to be an active law firm offering our clients our best advice, taking into consideration not only tax matters but other issues that might influence the final decision. Therefore, we try to keep our clients updated as much as possible.
Finally, we believe in the excellence and the improvement of our team, from a technical and human perspective. Therefore, we try to excel ourselves on daily basis so that we can keep our quality standards and our closeness with our clients.
bln palao abogados is a small law firm that gives priority to the human values. Our main values are honesty, frankness, closeness with our clients, and the excellence of our team, all of them in benefit of our clients, which is the main reason of this specific project.
At bln palao abogados we enjoy working with our clients and we are totally convinced that where there is a problem, an opportunity may arise. We are totally clear with our clients sharing with them all our information and knowledge and we provide them with practical solutions, assuming their needs as ours.
