Distribution and retail


Our team of lawyers have the experience and know-how needed to provide a full legal service to businesses and investors in the production and distribution as well as the retail sectors.

Through our comprehensive, cross-sector approach to the applicable legislative and regulatory provisions, our clients can anticipate legislative and regulatory changes and minimise potential impacts.

This sector plays an important role in the circular economy and has significant the weight in the Portuguese economy. The sector has many challenges, including the growing pressure to reduce packaging consumption as well as prolong the life of their products. To help them manage these challenges, we have advised retailers of the leading Portuguese and international brands to develop, improve and rethink their business models. These models may be their own set ups or franchises, and they may involve retail or wholesale. We also act for clients in certain niches of the market, particularly luxury goods.

Brands and stores selling the most diverse goods and services to the public are enjoying constant growth, dynamism and globalisation. In response, our team deals with everything from brand management and protection to the contractual and commercial relationships necessary to set up, licence and operate all kinds of commercial outlets in Portugal or abroad.
