I then found out that my lawyer never sorted the bank guarantee out!!!!
When I queried this he said that the lawyer who originally dealt with the case had left and it was her fault not theirs as she wasn’t directly employed by them. I am pretty certain this isn’t true.

I now have no faith in my lawyer and am thinking of suing him never mind the developer!

1. Did you ever have a meeting with your original lawyer in the company offices in Spain?

2. Did this lawyer give you a company business card with her name on it?

3. Did this original lawyer correspond with you using company-headed notepaper?

I am not a lawyer, but I would have thought if you can answer yes to any of the above, this firm doesn’t have a leg to stand on.

I hope your new lawyer is good, trustworthy and recommended.
In general, lawyers don’t like suing other lawyers (‘brotherhood’ and all that…). Make sure this new one is right – having been stitiched up by the developers, and also your lawyer firm, you deserve some justice.

Failing to obtain a Bank Guarantee for a client surely is a serious case of misconduct.
