Being a coastal country, Spain benefits from a developed shipping industry and other related sub-sectors. Thus, one of the ways to open a company in Spain is by registering a business for the repair or (and) maintenance of ships and boats, in which case the investors will have to hire specialists who can handle any task related to this business sector. Our team of Spanish lawyers can provide legal assistance on the registration procedure, as well as on the rules of law regulating this activity.
