In Portugal, Cuatrecasas has offices in Lisbon and Porto, with a total of over 180 lawyers.
The firm's Portuguese roots date back to 1928 when Armando Gonçalves Pereira founded a law firm in Lisbon, which stood out for its independent legal practice and its activity with a strong focus on foreign investment. André Gonçalves Pereira continued to apply the same approach under his management. The firm’s consolidation as a benchmark firm on the Portuguese market, coupled with a strong commitment to internalization, as well as its integration with one of the largest Spanish law firms, led to what today is the Cuatrecasas Iberian law firm.
On January 1, 2023, Cuatrecasas integrated SLCM - Serra Lopes, Cortes Martins & Associados, one of the most experienced and prestigious Portuguese law firms, adding 43 professionals to the firm’s team in Portugal. With this operation, Cuatrecasas now has a team of over 250 people in Portugal, including partners, consultants, associates, and support staff.
The Lisbon office, located in the heart of the city, is home to over 160 lawyers with a proven track record handling large and complex transactions, and specializing in all areas of law. They combine traditional legal practice with the specialized knowledge required for each case.
