We are a boutique law office located in the Lisbon Business District - Avenida Antonio Augusto de Aguiar. This location is known for having the highest number of law offices per square meter. The reason is due to the proximity to most of the public services: tax department, immigration department, registries office, courts, post offices, etc.
Although we’re focused on the areas described above, we provide assistance in others areas too.
Our work philosophy is very different from that of multi-partner law firms: we do not believe your private lawyer is inter-changeable with a junior associate, another partner in a law firm or whoever is available. A private client lawyer is not defined by the areas of law covered, or the number of partners involved or the size of the supporting staff. What is key is the personal relationship of trust forged between the lawyer and the client. It is taking ownership of your matters. You don't need a large firm for that. You only need the lawyer you trust to be fully and unwaveringly dedicated to your needs. In areas which fall outside of our expertise, we have the industry knowledge to suggest the right lawyer for your matter. We are not constrained to recommending someone just because we work at the same law firm.
We are dedicated to the legal needs of foreigners connecting with Portugal, either through citizenship, residence or purchasing property. In areas such as tax planning we have like-minded, trusted partners from whom we demand our standards of accountability and service. We are also able to help in other areas such as the drafting of wills or the employment of domestic staff, collaborating with the best advisors across these legal areas.
Advising individuals with an international footprint accustomed to best-in-class service requires combining legal expertise with real world experience. Our clients’ legal needs are of great importance, either for personal or financial reasons. This implies a need for caring beyond the Call of Duty and ensuring each client feels they are our most important client.
From full, legal due-diligence through all aspects of transferring legal title of any real-estate property until the resolution, we steer our clients through various legal processes here in Portugal. We strive to provide a reassuring service, bridging gaps in cultural and legal differences. We have built strong relationships with brokers and legal consultants without ever losing sight of the autonomy required to remain clear of conflicts of interest.
Alongside the principal players in the real estate sector, we advise and assist a wide range of operations. Having the necessary resources and know-how to assist clients in their business deals on both national and international levels, our firm is the go-to in this field of the law.
With our well-known ability to integrate complex transactions, we handle the lifecycle of real estate property; from its acquisition and development to leasing and financing. Being intimately involved at all stages necessary to close the business deal requires a level of experience and dedication only we can provide.

We also structure negotiations for real estate operations including income security, transactions, leasebacks and forward purchases. This involves performing real estate due diligence and structuring real estate groups and investment funds, as well as operations involving institutional investors. We have extensive connections with multiple sectors in the construction industry, which enables us to network the management of ideas and resources that will bring your goals into focus. We also act at the forefront of green technology and scientific innovation, such as renewable energy and carbon reduction technologies. Further more, we keep up with developing news and trends to offer the best advice and promote the essential services our clients need.
