APORT is a consortium of Portuguese lawyers with offices in Lisbon, Oporto and Algarve.
The offices operate independently, but under close cooperation and together they offer the following specialty areas:
- Company Law
- Labour Law
- Real Estate Law
- Administrative Law
- Community Law
- Pharmaceutical and Health Law
APORT keeps frequent international contacts and in 1989 some of its members were founders of LAW – Lawyers Associated Worldwide.
Each office operates separately and maintains an exclusive relationship with its clients, without involving other members of APORT. APORT, is not a law firm, but a consortium of lawyers that allows its members to multiply their resources and to offer services with the help and cooperation of all the other members of the consortium without loosing their independence.
Members of APORT share and have the same vision on law, they see it as a profession that serves others, which must be exercised in a full-time basis, using the latest technology, without losing sight of the direct personal contact between the lawyer and the client.
Our offices are located in Lisbon, Porto and the Algarve, in order to allow national coverage. This way, clients of each of the offices benefit from a truly national geographical scope, without having to deal with mega-firms where it is harder to find a personalized service.
Aport's lawyers have a solid local experience. Our partners have been engaged to law as exclusive service suppliers for nearly 30 years, which is a guarantee of strong and deep rooted knowledge of the local conditions.
At Aport we are fluent in several languages, those in which businesses and issues are routinely conducted. The most commonly used languages in addition to Portuguese are English, French and Spanish but we also have lawyers who speak German and Italian.
