ITALIAN DESK

The PLMJ Italian Desk is made up of a group of lawyers with in-depth knowledge of the Italian language, market and culture as well as experience gained from years of advising clients and companies of Italian origin or with Italian capital. 

The lawyers of the Italian Desk specialise in helping Italian clients who want to invest in Portugal and in Portuguese-speaking countries or other countries served by PLMJ’s international network. They are also perfectly positioned to provide legal advice to Portuguese companies in their expansion to Italy, in areas such as corporate and M&A, tax, finance and capital markets, private clients (in particular, family law, inheritance and wealth management), consumer law, employment, customs, intellectual property, competition law, e-commerce, property and construction, commercial licensing and franchising.

PLMJ’s Italian Desk team is coordinated by a partner of the firm who is an Italian national and works with a team of lawyers with close ties to the country who are all fluent in Italian. The team has all the skills necessary to provide a multidisciplinary service and work with a range of sectors of activity such as international trade and e-commerce, luxury goods and services, tourism, industry and retail, among others. The Italian Desk is also backed up by the more than 200 PLMJ lawyers working at its offices in Lisbon, Oporto and Faro, a set-up that brings all the advantages of a leading full-service law firm.

PLMJ’s international network is also a huge benefit for clients because it makes it possible for any transaction involving more than one country to be handled with the same quality guarantee. PLMJ International Legal Network is present in a number of Portuguese-speaking countries including Angola, Mozambique, East Timor, Brazil and Macao, as well as in markets that are experiencing strong growth, and where there are an ever greater number of investment opportunities, such as China.
