Balms Abogados has strengthened its service to families and SME´s with the intention of helping overcome the ravages of the pandemic, according to its president, Juan Luis Balmaseda de Ahumada, at the celebration of the 31st Congress of the firm.
The health situation has also made it necessary to hold the firm's annual congress with the exclusive participation of the partners and adopting all the recommended health measures, such as the obligation to present a negative PCR test. The annual meeting was held in Collado Mediana (Madrid).
The Congress highlighted the boost given to services aimed at helping the firm's SME and family clients to overcome the inconveniences created by the measures adopted by the administrations due to the Covid19 pandemic. "I have to recognise the work of a team that has devoted itself, more than ever, to being close to its clients, supporting them and helping them in all those difficult situations that have arisen in their day-to-day lives throughout this difficult year," said the firm's chairman.
Mr. Jorge Martín Losa, managing partner of the Madrid office, presented the compliance services that the firm is offering to all the businesses that are clients of the firm. In this regard, Mr. Martín Losa highlighted the need for SMEs to implement compliance mechanisms "that exempt managers from any legal problems that may arise in the operation of the company or in the actions of any of its employees".
As part of the wide range of compliance services that the firm offers to companies, the firm also announced that they will carry out a study with ISDE, the business school specialised in these matters, in order to study the needs in depth and improve the services offered to clients.
As another of the firm's most outstanding services, this 31st Annual Congress shared the firm's expertise in relation to services aimed at third-country nationals who come to Spain with the intention of creating wealth, and the facilities that our legal system offers them in exchange in the form of a residence permit. In this case, Marta Ossorio, a professional specialised in this specific area who recently joined the team with the intention, precisely, of reinforcing these services, which are in great demand by foreign citizens, mainly from countries such as Russia, Mexico and also by English citizens concerned about the situation following the exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union, was in charge of presenting the services offered by the firm.
In conclusion, the president of Balms Abogados was very satisfied with the team's response in a tough year like this" and was sure to be able to personally thank each of the employees for their efforts, face to face and sharing the debate in the 32nd congresses that, I am sure, will be held with the entire team of Balms Abogados .
