Portugal > Tax

Based across the firm’s Lisbon and Oporto offices, the tax team at PLMJ possesses broad domestic and international experience. Transactional advice is a key pillar of the practice, where the team is often engaged on M&A, banking, restructuring and real estate-related matters. Complex and sensitive tax litigation is also a central focus of the team, where it is instructed by domestic and international clients. Serena Cabrita Neto in Lisbon is experienced in high-profile tax disputes and Oporto-based Miguel C Reis is noted for transactional matters. João Velez de Lima, who is also based in Oporto, handles contentious and non-contentious work. Isaque Ramos recently joined from McKinsey & Company.
