International and European law: accuracy over your case.

How is liability settled when I am involved with my British car in an accident in Portugal?

Family affairs, real estate, inheritance, or taxes: living and working abroad means you are confronted with international or European law.

International law defines which law system in which country is applicable, and which courts are authorized to handle the case. International law also defines how different countries will recognise court rulings.

We strive to create clarity for you and to answer your legal questions:

  • We validate your question about the relevant legal systems in the countries involved.
  • We provide and translate the necessary documents.
  • We represent or assist you at authorities and where necessary provide an oral translation.

In short, we offer a customized solution, in your language, to your specific international legal problem.

 I live in Portugal and my children live in the UK. What happens to the inheritance when I die?

When someone dies, family members need to take care of the inheritance procedure. Taxes need to be paid on time.

Real Estate: Buying or Selling a house in Portugal

What do I need to buy a house in Portugal?
