The Swiss Desk is the product of a decade of experience in advising private clients and Swiss companies both in conducting cross-border operations and in providing legal support and a regular professional presence in this market.

The project operates as an office representing PLMJ International Legal Network and is able to provide clients of PLMJ and the Network with the support they need in Switzerland in their commercial and professional relationships with local entities, including the possibility of providing advice on Swiss law.

The Swiss Desk also supports local clients in transferring their assets, businesses or people to Portugal and/or any of the countries where the Network has a presence. This work is done in close corporation with the firms and partners of the Network, beginning in Lisbon and including São Paulo, Luanda, Maputo, Macao, China and even East Timor.

The Swiss Desk team is made up of lawyers who regularly handle matters and transactions related to the Swiss market, including local legal work. These lawyers are a familiar with the local professional and business culture and are fluent, among other languages, in French. The team includes lawyers who are qualified to provide legal advice on Swiss law.

This means that the lawyers of the Swiss Desk are in the perfect position to provide legal support to private clients and companies from the Portuguese-speaking world, including Portugal, that have interest in Switzerland. These lawyers are equally well-prepared to provide legal support to Swiss individuals and companies wanting to invest in Portugal or in Portuguese-speaking countries.
