Litigation and arbitration: arbitration stands out within litigation as a new and modern way of achieving a final legal ruling, in a swifter, less formal and therefore faster manner. Rogério Alves & Associados is strongly focused on this legal practice. Whether litigation is of a criminal, civil or commercial nature, or in matters related to private international law, the firm fully commits to each case. With maximum commitment, competence and fighting spirit, the team upholds the rights of those it represents. The practice area of litigation and arbitration is headed by founding partner Rogério Alves.

In permanent liaison with its clients, Rogério Alves & Associados offers pragmatic, regular and ongoing legal advice in the areas of corporate and commercial, finance and banking, tax, real estate, construction and sports law, by negotiating in mergers and acquisitions, internationalisation projects in Portuguese-speaking countries, financial restructurings and bank liabilities management, health and pharmaceutical, and media and technologies sectors. The practice area of business law is co-headed by partners Filipe Barata and João Pedro Varandas.

Public law: the public law team aims to provide clients with a specialised service in various aspects of administrative law, with particular focus in the areas of procurement, planning and construction law, public employment, environmental law, fund law and community funding, expropriation, and administrative law in general. Rogério Alves & Associados provides customised legal advice in all matters of public law, which may take many different forms, depending on the specific needs of the client, namely legal advice granted in given projects or transactions, providing legal information and advice, updates and follow-ups of legal proceedings, and patronage in court or arbitration proceedings.
