In 1979 Joan Buades founded the Buades Feliu firm, after building up valuable professional experience in Madrid and Barcelona. With very clear values and methodology, the project took off during some exciting years that were full of challenges for Spain’s young democracy.
New lawyers joined, several of whom are still practising with Bufete Buades: Antonio Tugores, Marta Rosell and Queta Amengual, are some examples. The quality and professionalism of the firm’s services acquired ever greater levels of renown. In 1991, Joan Buades started his educational career as a visiting lecturer in Procedural Law at the Universitat de les Illes Balears.
This change of location started a new stage in the firm’s project, now under its current name of Bufete Buades. The new headquarters were the start a new project, with the aim of improving service for its clients and offering them high quality legal advice.
New lawyers joined the firm, the administrative department was expanded and the office’s physical and IT facilities were extended and improved.

One year earlier, in 2001, he became the founder and Chairman of the Cercle de Economía (Economic Circle), at the same time as serving as secretary of the board of directors of RCD Mallorca football club and of the Balearic Association of Family Businesses.
The company made a strong decision to specialize, based on the model of a multidisciplinary company of lawyers, whose members have extensive experience in the different areas of legal practice, as well as quality training and a high level of specialization in the fields in which they work.
During these years, Joan Buades was named as one of the 20 most influential people in the Balearics by the business newspaper Expansión.
A restructuring process of the different areas of practice was carried out in order to adapt to the demands of our clients, with improvements to the firm’s internal processes, always based around team work. At the same time, the groundwork for the International Desk was laid, an area of practice which specializes in offering professional support for the demands of the wide range of foreign clients who use the services of the firm.
The Balearics, as a privileged and strategic natural enclave in the Mediterranean, attract a large number of foreigners who establish their residences and businesses here. The growing demand for quality legal advice from this sector drove the creation of the International Desk. This is a legal and management team which specializes in foreign investments, combining their professional abilities with excellent language skills, providing high quality customer service by dealing with clients in their own language.
