Real estate and construction


We advise Portuguese and international investors, developers, construction companies and investment funds on the sale or acquisition of portfolios of various types of properties. Our team also advises on the construction of shopping centres, retail parks and outlets, hotels and other real estate developments.

We support clients in sale transactions, construction projects and real estate development, in particular, in drafting the contracts with subcontractors. We also assist in creating common and joint developments, and partnerships for large-scale construction projects in public or private partnerships, and consortia.

In construction, PLMJ acts for multiple agents operating in the market. These include contractors, designers, suppliers, agencies and developers of real estate projects. We deal with licensing and then provide support in our clients’ ongoing activities. Our clients’ operations involve hiring contractors, contracts for goods and related services and project management. Our team also helps ensure compliance with the applicable construction rules and, when necessary, it deals with any litigation, arbitration and other forms of dispute resolution.

We also provide legal services in the area of tourism, in particular, in the purchase, planning, development and management of hotels, holiday resorts and time-shares. The team also acts in matters relating to travel and leisure agencies.
