Spanisch lernen


Estudio Español is pleased to announce the recent formation of a partnership with Dominika Hirsch. The Barcelona-based consulting firm manages and advises mainly German and Polish companies, businessmen/women and managers who want to settle in Spain. Their services include major business areas such as support for the planning and implementation of start-ups, market entry, the analysis of potential, marketing, market research and due diligence, amongst others. 

The founder Dominika Hirsch was born in Poland and studied cultural studies at the University of Barcelona before studying law at the European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder). Besides Polish, she speaks Spanish, Catalan, German and English. 

“My experience as a lawyer in Barcelona showed me that most of the difficulties in establishing European companies in Spain have an intercultural root. He who is familiar with the intercultural background can take that into account in the early stages of planning, avoid surprises later on and exploit potential profitable synergies,” explains Ms. Hirsch during an informal dinner. 

Through the new partnership, Estudio Español offers clients expert advice and coaching on business and cultural factors on location in Spain.
