About Despacho Lamas

“We won the lottery with this office,” smiles Jaime Lamas, founder and head of prestigious law firm Despacho Lamas. In his smartly-cut suit with an easy manner and warm smile, Jaime is one of the heavyweights in the world of property law on the island. And the lofty views from his prestigious office, taking in a wide swathe of Palma’s cityscape and glistening bay, are also fittingly impressive.

Coming from a family scattered with lawyers, Jaime has it in his blood. A degree in law from the University of the Balearic Islands was soon followed by post-graduate studies in Vienna, plus spells training in both Frankfurt and London. He returned to Spain to work at his uncle’s law firm, before striking out on his own – and in 1989 Despacho Lamas was born.

Fast forward 30 years, and thousands of clients, Jaime has established his company as one of the leaders in the field, not just for property law, but absolutely everything relating to the buying, selling and management of real estate.

Non-residents make up 90% of their clientele, meaning they have experience and expertise to solve all and any issues surrounding property that foreigners encounter.

From negotiation and purchasing of real estate to inheritance and town hall licenses, or even disputes with neighbours, the international multilingual team at Despacho Lamas offers a 360-degree service that covers it all.

And after three decades, what still motivates Jaime? “A job well done, which is the work ethic that underpins everything we do.” Satisfaction comes from seeing clients happy, “it keeps me awake at night if I know they are not!”

While firmly established at the top of his game, he’s not resting on his laurels. “You have to grow or die,” he explains, “you have to change with the times.”  The company’s 10-strong team includes his two daughters who have brought a new, younger energy to the business.

But what won’t be changing is the company’s unerring focus on giving their all to satisfy their client’s needs, ensuring happiness with a job done well, and a good night’s sleep all around.
