Private Clients & Family Businesses
Abreu Advogados has a working group with extensive experience in advising individuals, families and family businesses on financial and personal matters.
Among the most relevant issues are consultation on asset management, planning and structuring of investments, advice on tax and employment, corporate counselling, obtaining loans, changing residence, legal and family matters, including pre-nuptial agreements and property regimes, divorce and regulation of parental responsibilities, succession planning and intergenerational transfer of family businesses, disputes between family members with regard to family businesses. These matters often become more complex when they are of an international nature, which involves determining the internationally competent courts and applicable law.
Abreu Advogados also represents private clients and family businesses in civil litigation (civil liability, consumer law), as well as labour, corporate, tax, administrative, criminal litigation and administrative disputes, and in mediation and arbitration proceedings.
