Firm Description:

The ALLAWYERS project was born in 2010, in Almancil, created by the lawyers Tiago Felizardo and Rita Branco. After working a number of years in different traditional law firms, they felt the market needed a different type of law firm, geared towards the client and his needs, with a professional and dynamic team capable of responding quickly and efficiently.

Currently, ALLAWYERS has collaboration with UK and Irish law offices and consists of a team of lawyers with over 15 years of experience in a broad range of legal fields, all registered with the Portuguese Bar Association and fluent in English.
