Practice Areas



Our team works in all areas of tax law, including tax consultancy, parafiscal charges and tax litigation. We provide proactive support to corporate clients in all areas of business and industry, and we also represent individuals and families in Portugal and abroad.

Our team works seamlessly with PLMJ’s other teams and with our clients’ representatives, employees and partners.

We have played a part in the most significant operations that have taken place in the Portuguese market. These include mergers, acquisitions, restructuring, and financial and foreign investment transactions in Portugal as well as outbound, especially in Europe and in the Portuguese-speaking countries. We provide legal support for our clients' projects from evaluation through to implementation.

In tax litigation, our work covers all stages of tax processes and proceedings. This includes defending our clients’ interests across the board in administrative, arbitration and judicial proceedings. We also represent our clients in criminal tax, customs and social security cases. In addition, we advise and represent our clients in cases involving the most controversial and innovative tax issues in Portugal, including before the Court of Justice of the European Union.

When it comes to individual clients, our family wealth team has a culture of proximity and availability. It also has the capacity to give legal support to these clients in every aspect of their private lives, both in Portugal and abroad, with the benefit of PLMJ’s international network. We support individual clients and their families in the areas of asset management and protection, estate planning, family governance, family disputes, immigration, nationality, philanthropy and art law.

Our team always seeks to present pragmatic tax solutions and to guarantee the effective defence of its clients’ interests.


They’re excellent quality. Their approach was very clear, the extent of their knowledge of the tax environment was amazing. Also, their commercial and legal knowledge relevant to the court case was impressive. I can offer no improvements. I think the level of quality is very high, keep at it.
