The Fernando Messias Lawyer was established in 1998 by attorney Fernando Messias. The Algarve Office and the Lisbon Office works with several attorneys. We work with seven attorneys in the country. “Know the company’s client as well as you know the company” has been our mission.
The growing demand over recent years from companies, essentially companies linked to the tourism and hotel industries, has led to the creation of partnerships in several areas of knowledge, from Law to Management of Tourism Companies, and including Architecture, Design and Engineering of Real Estate Projects, and Corporate and Tourism Company Taxes.
These national and international partnerships allow us to respond in an expedient and effective manner to our clients' greatest demands. From 2005 to 2012, we experienced a decisive period for establishing and strengthening these partnerships.
In 2014, we want to grow in other areas that have already been developed but require more attention, such as Knowledge Management and Corporate Identity, essential areas for Tourism Law and Tourism Marketing.
All this professional dynamism is founded on the premise that constitutes our motto: “Preventing, foreseeing and planning legal actions and behaviours have been the foundations for an up-to-date and highly responsible attorney practice”.
