With a strong multidisciplinary and international experience, they also have the support of lawyers and law firms, selected and highly qualified, in Portugal, Brazil and Cape Verde, aiming at offering a comprehensive service and with international projection, without neglecting the quality and personal assistance of the client.

The partners advocate for diversity, equality and non-discrimination, seeking to treat all colleagues, clients, partners and agents involved in the daily work with tolerance, respect and fairness.

The firm also undertakes its commitment: to the community, supporting projects and institutions of social solidarity by providing pro bono legal support and broadcasting them in its network; and to the planet, by promoting the use of recycled materials and the recycling of materials used, giving priority to non-polluting means of communication, striving for efficiency and the saving of water and energy.


When choosing a lawyer it is important to have a professional who has deep knowledge of the subject and vast experience in the areas of practice, as only by linking theory to practice we can act with full confidence in the work and its outcomes.

On the other hand, the personal component is also important. Having the support of a lawyer who is available, committed and seeking the most innovative and appropriate solutions, however without creating false expectations to clients, is of utmost importance for maintaining the trust necessary to succeed.

We strive every day to be such type of professional, working daily to excel the clients’ expectations.
