Overview

Linklaters’ Portuguese tax practice is uniquely placed within the national market to combine the expertise of a worldwide, experienced practice with the needs imposed by the market.

Our tax department uses its analytical ability and technical acumen to provide integrated tax advice on the legal and regulatory aspects of our clients’ activities and transactions.

Major corporates rely on our market leading tax advice when planning their group structure, locating their assets and functions, managing their supply chains and dealing with transfer pricing issues.

Either when considering the optimal location for a top holding company, public or private M&A transactions or restructurings, or requiring added-value advisory work or tax litigation support, we provide fully integrated, global tax advice covering all relevant jurisdictions (and not simply a compilation of local tax advice), and also providing assistance on other areas such as company law and regulatory aspects.

We advise on mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, cross-border transactions, capital markets, banking products, international tax planning, corporate tax and Portuguese real estate tax planning, taking a transaction-by-transaction approach.
