Registered with the Portuguese Bar Association under no. 13/2004, the firm was established on the basis of the professional practice of its founding partner, Ana Bruno, focusing on the effective implementation of tailored solutions to meet the needs of each client, and committed to seeking, finding and identifying the needs and interests of its clients and adapting its resources accordingly, fashioning itself as a boutique firm.

Its focus is directed on individual clients, with multiple interests and fields of action, advising them on their investments, on the identification of opportunities and even on their day-to-day management.

The firm strives to establish Long-term partnerships with its clients, presenting solutions aimed at creating value for the client in a long-term perspective.  The firm strives to know and evaluate each situation and act in a way that does not compromise the goals and future projects of our clients, establishing trust by adopting an attitude of collaboration, sharing and mutual gain.

Located in Lisbon but prepared to readily shift its resources to other locations, the firm has succeeded in providing legal services throughout the country to both national and foreign clients and in a wide range of business areas. The firm is also recognized for its rapid response to clients in need of legal support overseas.

This characteristic and the great amount of work that it generates were the reason for the establishment of special desks for jurisdictions with which the firm has major business, namely Angola, Mozambique, United Arab Emirates and, more recently, Macau.

The firm also provides safe access to all jurisdictions in Europe through the association of European law firms Cyrus Ross International E.E.I.G.
