Back

Legal advice on tax matters is critical to the success of businesses, including on a day-to-day basis, and in structuring acquisition operations, restructuring, international operations, or in resolving tax-related disputes.

We pride ourselves on always seeking precise and pragmatic tax solutions, and on effectively defending our clients' interests.

Our team works in all areas of tax law, including tax consultancy, parafiscal charges and tax litigation. We support corporate clients from all business areas and industries and do so proactively by working with our clients throughout the life cycle of their businesses.

This team works seamlessly with other PLMJ teams and always seek to establish a partnership with our clients' in-house teams.

Our clients choose us because we are a team that deals with every aspect, from evaluation to implementation, of the most significant and complex operations in the country. These include mergers, acquisitions, restructuring, financial operations, and foreign investment in Portugal and from Portugal abroad, especially in Europe and in the Portuguese-speaking world.

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 tax, customs, and social security crime 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.

Specialisations

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.
