“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”

Harper Lee.


The chambers of Cànoves Advocats have more than forty years of experience, working to defend the rights of our clients and to advise them in the prevention of conflict since their foundation by the solicitor Salvador Cànoves Rotger in 1980.

Our work philosophy is based on professional values, commitment, quality and immediate action to anticipate and solve our clients’ problems.

The area of activity of our chambers and offices covers the whole of Spain and especially the Balearic Islands.

The extent of the scope we cover enables us to attend our clients personally, combining as appropriate both direct face-to-face contact and use of the advanced technological means at our disposal.

The team includes experts in the many facets of the law and this contributes to greater efficiency and the basis for solving problems, as the individual sphere of expertise of each of the solicitors has the back-up of the opinions and advice of the other specialists in the office.
