Marbella had already been a popular destination for Scandinavian holidaymakers when the lawyer and entreprenør Einar Askvig founded Vogt Law Firm in 1999. He noticed a demand for a Norwegian law firm that specialised in property purchases in Spain, and decided to fill the gap in the market with his more than 20 year-long experience in law and business.
As the demand grew rapidly, so did the company success, and after two busy years both the team of consultants and the administration expanded. We moved into new offices on the outskirts of Marbella in 2001, and hired our first Norwegian and Spanish lawyers.
Over the years we have expanded our competence areas and our services following the movements of the property market and our clients´growth. From simply focusing on property purchases, we are now able to help our clients within property law, inheritance law, tax law, housing law, corporate law and maritime law. We also collaborate with two Scandinavian banks and partner well with newly founded companies and property investors.
Our clients come from various countries, though 99 percent of them are Norwegians wishing to start a property adventure along the Sun Coast. Our vision of being a professional, proactive and hands-on partner for our clients has only grown stronger.
