We are excited to join such a prestigious alliance. This strategic move expands the resources available to our clients and our team of lawyers to the international market place, and strengthens the profile of the firm in Portugal.

Following careful evaluation of Portugal’s mid-tier law firm market, leading international professional services alliance Alliott Group has admitted ABV as its representative law firm member in Portugal. The firm was selected for not only its ability to demonstrate high quality client service standards and professional ethics, but also its range of legal services, contacts with professional intermediaries and its international outlook.

Based in Lisbon, the firm offers a wide range of legal services to a growing client base, with particular emphasis on company and commercial matters, dispute resolution, real estate and construction law, as well as private client services. The firm has particular expertise in providing integrated legal services to companies and individuals within Portugal, including Madeira, but also in the Portuguese-speaking African countries, especially Angola, Cape Verde, Mozambique and São Tomé.

Antonio Paula Varela, partner at ABV (pictured with Alliott Group CEO James Hickey) comments: “We are excited to join such a prestigious alliance. This strategic move expands the resources available to our clients and our team of lawyers to the international market place, and strengthens the profile of the firm in Portugal. We join a growing alliance of law and accountancy firms whose member firms handle clients of a similar size and type to our firm.”

James Hickey, Alliott Group CEO, who formally welcomed the firm to the alliance at the group’s international conference in New York City recently, comments: “ABV was the outstanding candidate in our selection process in Portugal. We have great confidence in the firm’s ability to help entrepreneurial companies get business done in Portugal and in African speaking Portuguese countries. The firm’s knowledge and experience of the Portuguese economy but also of other developing, Portuguese-speaking economies in Africa, gives clients and our members a competitive advantage in this increasingly important part of the world.”

With Victor José & Associados SROC Lda providing accountancy related services in Portugal, the appointment of ABV now ensures domestic and international companies have access to the wide spectrum of professional services that are needed to operate and get business done as efficiently as possible in Portugal.

Founded in 1979, Alliott Group comprises over 170 independent accountancy and law member firms from some 70 countries through the Europe, Middle East & Africa, Americas and Asia Pacific regions.
