PLMJ’s Tax Practice is one of the largest specialist teams working in the area of tax law in Portugal. These lawyers have the technical qualifications, training and academic and professional connections to respond to the full-range of issues raised by their clients.
The tax practice is organised into two broad areas of specialisation: consulting and litigation. In each of these areas there are lawyers who specialise by client sector (e.g. finance, tourism, public sector, individuals) or by work type (e.g. M&A, VAT, international taxation, wealth planning, tax crimes).
This practice is recognised as a boutique of unrivalled quality in the area of tax law. The lawyers of the tax practice also provide ongoing support for the day-today tax management of their clients’ businesses.
The tax practice team presents the approaches and tax solutions that are most appropriate under the applicable legislation. This helps our clients to make the most of their opportunities and to face the difficulties that arise from the rules governing tax practices and management in their business activity.
