BANKS & FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS

We provide legal advice to banks and financial institutions, covering the full range of operations, products and financial instruments including classic financing, project finance, structured products, setting up and commercialisation of investment funds, guarantees and letters of credit, derivatives, mortgages and consumer credit.

The in-depth knowledge of the matters at issue and the unrivalled experience of the people who make up our team, some of whom formerly worked in the legal departments of credit institutions or financial supervisory authorities, make PLMJ the first choice to provide on-going support for banking activity, in restructuring operations and in financial regulatory and supervisory matters.

From this sector of activity, PLMJ provides legal support to clients including a number of Portuguese and international credit institutions and financial and investment companies that do business in Portugal.

Besides the legal side of our work and the provision of support in transactions and in the structuring of financial products and services, we have also been entrusted, amongst other matters, with the revision and adaptation of legal documentation and internal processes relating to the enactment of of EU directives in Portugal, as well as advising on cross-border banking and financial activity both for Portuguese institutions abroad and for foreign institutions in Portugal.
