The firm has over 180 lawyers in Portugal and the Porto office has around 20 professionals.
The firm has its Portuguese origins in the prestigious Lisbon law office that Professor Armando Gonçalves Pereira founded in 1928, and soon became renowned for its independence and its legal support to foreign investment in Portugal. These attributes were further developed under the direction of Professor André Gonçalves Pereira. The consolidation of the law firm as a reference in the Portuguese market, together with its international drive and integration with a major Spanish law firm, has resulted in what today is the Iberian DNA of Cuatrecasas.
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 Porto office was established in 1989. Together with the Lisbon office, the team represents the interests of the country's major companies and has participated in some of Portugal's most prominent business deals.
Our extensive network of offices throughout the Iberian Peninsula and the main international markets enables us to meet our clients’ needs in other jurisdictions.
