German Desk


PLMJ has the largest team of lawyers in Portugal providing legal advice in German. We respond to the needs of Portuguese companies operating in the German market and of German companies investing in the Portuguese market.


A great deal of business is being done between Portuguese and German or German-speaking companies and it continues to grow. This means our clients need a wide range of legal services, whether in preparing contracts, in providing them with legal support in the daily activities of their companies, in complex investment operations, or simply in enforcing obligations or in debt recovery.

The simple and quick process to incorporate a company in Portugal makes it easy for German-speaking companies to set up for business here, and it is precisely at this moment that our team comes into action.

The German Desk is made up of bilingual lawyers, some with dual nationality. It provides legal support backed by in-depth knowledge of the different legal systems and experience of over 17 years working in this market with German-speaking clients. A distinguishing characteristic of this team is its ability to support its clients entirely in German. From correspondence with its clients, to preparing opinions and dealing in full with each specific case, including contracts drawn up in German, studies of documents in German and preparing and examining witnesses in Germany.

The German Desk also focuses on fostering close relationships with the commercial departments of the embassies of various countries. This means our team is perfectly placed to provide the best legal support and advice to German-speaking clients based in Portugal and to Portuguese clients with a presence in German-speaking countries.

Moreover, our team maintains relationships with numerous German law firms and this makes it easier to add value throughout the process of providing legal support to our clients.
