A Multidisciplinary Vision
TOURISM

The tourism sector is expanding rapidly in Portugal, with the main real estate operations concentrated in various regions of the country.

PLMJ has specialised lawyers in a range of practice areas who work with lawyers who have expertise and extensive experience in the tourism sector itself. Together, these lawyers provide legal support to some of the most important resort developments in the country as well as to well-known Portuguese and international names in the hotel industry. Our team has worked hand-in-hand with many of these high-end resort and hotel developments from the outset.

Our services for the tourism sector include:

  • Drafting and negotiating contracts (for the sale and purchase of resort developments, for tourism operations, for the transfer of rights of use in holiday apartments, the transfer of timeshare property rights and obligations, hotel management contracts and others)
  • Support in obtaining licences to set up and operate resort developments, including property, tourism and tax issues
  • Support in the conception and preparation of contract forms and models for resort developments and investments
  • Drafting the documents necessary to establish tourism developments, whether resorts, holiday villages or holiday apartments
  • Support in obtaining licences to set up and run tourism operations, including travel agencies
  • Litigation over disputes arising from tourism issues and resort developments
  • Preparation of legal opinions
