CABRERA RODRÍGUEZ ETL GLOBAL is a Canary Islands firm which is fully recognized and established in the legal and taxation sectors, specializing in foreign investment and its legal and fiscal planning, in business and wealth restructuring, in family businesses and in real estate law. As experts in Law, Canary Islands taxation, and in the planning of business investments, we create the most suitable structures for each client profile, supplying a tailored-made service of continuous, integral and individual advice, always protecting the rights and interests of our clients.

Our vocation of the promotion of our region, the internationalization of our firm and our determination to make it a firm of reference for investment in the Canary Islands has led us to become partners of ETL GLOBAL, an international firm of German origin specializing in professional services of legal, fiscal, and auditing advice with a presence in over fifty countries, which today occupies fifth position in Spain in terms of turnover among companies in the sector.



Our distinguishing features have always been the same: rigour, efficiency, security and creativity. Rigour and efficiency through serious and honest advice. Security and creativity in the design of individualised legal and taxpaying frameworks adapted to the needs of each client. That versatility is founded on a team of professionals who give our firm a multi-disciplinary character which makes it stand out, and which allows us to compete with multi-national legal practices and firms of national standing, with the added advantage of our proximity to our clients, our profound knowledge of our environment and its peculiarities, and its firm and decisive involvement in the development of our territory, in direct collaboration with the business fabric and the administration.

Our offices in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Adeje and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, with the permanent presence of our partners and managers, allow us to always be where we have to be: close to our clients, available to offer solutions and continuous support.



We cultivate and transmit our mentality of growth so that it leads to the health and evolution of the firm through an organisation which concentrates on professional excellence and the treatment of our clients.

Our great growth challenge is each day to build a legal practice that is focussed on people and teamwork. We make a commitment to our human capital so that our people grow with us at the personal and professional level.

CABRERA RODRÍGUEZ applies policies of gender equality and perspective with a team composed of a majority of professional and committed women, who are leaders in their working life and in their families.

We live in a world where the frontiers have ceased to be barriers in the business sphere and CABRERA RODRÍGUEZ has taken a decisive step forward through its recent alliance with ETL Global.

  • Honesty, rigour and integrity, creativity and specialisation.

At CABRERA RODRÍGUEZ, we are aware of our role in improving our society. Our concern for building social value, combating the recurrent infringement of human rights, for the situation of the most disadvantaged groups and for the protection of the environment makes it indispensable that we should adopt policies of Corporate Social Responsibility as part of our philosophy.

An essential part of our Corporate Social Responsibility is the promotion and defence of policies of gender equality and promotion of the roles of women in society. We demand the recognition of professional women as leaders, as an essential driving force for social progress. Our office is a vivid example of this new and necessary reality, with 80% women and 20% men.

Our social commitment begins with our team, our greatest asset, to help them and motivate them to improve at all levels and to reconcile professional and personal life.

In our professional practice and through pro-bono work we systematically help people and companies that need us, and which do not have economic possibilities. We also work habitually with charitable organisations and as far as possible finance deserving causes.

We promote a sustainable organization, incorporating a protocol of maximum digitalization of our files and documentation to minimize the use of paper and cardboard, and we carry out recycling processes involving these materials systematically and we have completely eliminated single-use plastic in our offices.

Finally, we take on, as lawyers and advisers, the commitment and moral duty to collaborate in making our legal system more and more just and equitable.
