About Us

Business Broker Spain over the years has become one of the largest business brokers in Spain.  Founded by Nigel Fitzpatrick and Mervyn Hughes in 2011 after re-branding from being associated with a large business transfer agency based in the UK. Nigel initially worked the Costa Blanca area of Spain and Mervyn the Costa del Sol and the logical step was to amalgamate these areas and join forces to grow the brand. Through sheer hard work, determination and tenacity we rode the recession of the early 2000's to develop other areas of Spain where Business Broker could thrive.
