Tiago Marreiros MoreiraVdA

VdA‘s well-balanced tax practice is equally adept at handling the tax aspects of market-leading transactions as it is working on various planning, advisory mandates and tax litigation. With ‘perfect knowledge of Portuguese and international tax law’, the firm fields different tax sub-groups according to specialisms: a financial tax team that comprises both experienced lawyers and consultants; an indirect tax practice; practitioners who focus on private wealth management; and one group dedicated to tax litigation and arbitration. Led by the ‘exceptional‘ Tiago Marreiros Moreira, the tax department is particularly sought after by clients in the energy, financial services, real estate, infrastructure and IT sectors. The practice head focuses on the international tax structuring of major investments in Portugal and Portuguese-speaking countries. Matthieu Le Roux is noted for his experience in tax mandates involving Francophone Africa. Contentious tax is a key specialism for Samuel Fernandes de Almeida and Joaquim Pedro Lampreia. Francisco Cabral Matos – who made partner in January 2022 – is active in international tax, M&A and real estate transactions, while Conceição Gamito is an expert in indirect tax. João Velez de Lima and Miguel Reis joined from PLMJ in September 2021.
