The legal limits for marketing done by Lawyers in Spain

Mindtimeshare-2

A lawyer in Spain can do marketing, yes. The law allows them to, but what are the limits and standard to respect in this matter?

The limits or Marketing regulations for the profession of law are outlined in the Code of Ethics for Lawyers in the Article 7 and 8 and in the Statute of the Legal Profession, Article 25

This is where they mention what kind of advertisement is allowed for lawyers to use;

It must be worthy, loyal and truthful; with absolute respect for the dignity of persons, and complying with the existing legislation on these matters.

The following is considered to be violation of the Code of Ethics and therefore prohibited:

  • Promising guaranteed results
  • Refer to other customers of the same office.
  • Targeting Victims of accidents or mishaps
  • Do comparisons with other lawyers
  • Encourage the lawsuit or conflict

Use media or expressions, visual or written which would suppose a discredit, defamation and contempt of Advocacy, Justice and its symbols.

Mindtimeshare has denounced several companies, linked with Spanish lawyers, who contact by telephone the owners of timeshare weeks or victims of fraud in order to offer their legal services.

Do you think these Spanish lawyers are exempt from responsibility because they are not the ones who telephone the customer directly? Because they take advantage of third party marketing companies which do the actual contact with the alleged victim.
