My experience with ABVADVOGADOS law firm, helping me to obtain a Golden Visa, was just outstanding! It’s an absolutely amazing team of highly professional, very knowledgeable and very friendly people. From proactive communications, explaining the whole process in very details, to leading and assisting me at every single step, on many occasions often going well above and beyond to ensure a great outcome, their services were superb! You feel treated as a friend, rather than just a client. I couldn’t have asked for a better law firm. Thank you again for all your hard work! Highly recommended!

During the past several years, Ms. Ana Prates and Mr. Antonio Varela, as my families' representative lawyers, have been responsibly and successfully handling our immigration and property cases. In this process of cooperation, as professionals, they showed me the most important qualities of a lawyer, such as: being responsible, efficient, reliable, professional, and so on. I fully trust that they have the ability to push cases forward well. If you are looking for a professional lawyer to cooperate with, they are the best choice.

A ABVADVOGADOS desde há muitos anos que é a nossa parceira nos assuntos jurídicos, na sua grande maioria cobranças coercivas. Neste especial aspecto a experiência que temos é de grande taxa de sucesso nas cobranças mais difíceis. A rapidez de actuação, a atenção pronta aos processos e as directrizes de actuação têm sido sempre uma constante, além da total transparência sempre presente na troca de impressões sobre os assuntos tratados. Parabéns!

ABVADVOGADOS has been advised to me by a friend of mine, partner in a well-known Tax Office in Brussels denominated "Tax Consult" and having a specific department dedicated to International Tax. I envisaged in fact to move to Portugal in order to benefit from the advantageous Portuguese Taxation Scheme of NHR (non habitual resident). The great advantage for the firm being a member of a prestigious international association called Alliott Global Alliance and personally knowing his foreign colleagues is to give their clients the most accurate and up to date service by using the same quality standards, specialized vocabulary, legal concepts and way of working as the ones used by the association. I am absolutely delighted by the quality of service provided by ABVADVOGADOS, António and his team, and particularly happy of having had the opportunity to know them. If I have to resume my testimonial in a few words, I would say:
Strengths: high degree of professionalism, commitment and duty of care, speed and quality of services, result minded, good knowledge of foreign languages.
Weaknesses: still looking for ..! : too human maybe !

Knowing Antonio Paula Varela personally since years as a extremely competent and trustworthy person, the law firm ABVADVOGADOS from Lisbon was of course my first address when a client of mine wanted to create a company and launch a business in Portugal. The service was outstanding: personalized, efficient, competent. My client appreciated above all the availability of the the different lawyers as well as their competence. They advised him how to set up his business, accompanied him to the meetings and assisted him with drafting the contracts to his entire satisfaction. I can highly recommend ABVADVOGADOS.

Bravo to ABVADVOGADOS who attended us with optimal professionalism for administrative procedures for our real estate purchase and request for RNH status with most efficient competency and quick reactivity. We can highly recommend ABVADVOGADOS for their full support above all if one does not speak Portuguese, which was the case for us.
