Immigration Law + -
The exceptional professional and family conditions that Portugal offers foreign citizens represent a strong incentive for them to come to our country, whether to invest, perform skilled labour, or for family settlement.
For citizens considering Portugal with migratory and entrepreneurial interests in mind, there are currently mechanisms such as the Golden Visa, the non-habitual resident status, or family reunification, which, in addition to providing advantages from a legal and tax perspective, allow foreign citizens holding a residence permit to enjoy several of the privileges granted to European citizens.

Real Estate Law + -
In addition to matters constituting property rights in the strict sense, the world we live in requires Real Estate Law to be partially considered in its own right, given its specific nature, whether in the transaction of real estate of varying degrees of complexity, the associated financing, creating funds, and the applicable town planning law and lease rules, with a specific focus on vacating real estate. Pragma Advogados provides ongoing, comprehensive, fast and effective advice to national and, increasingly, foreign clients, from the planning and execution of real estate operations to the clarification of the legal consequences associated with these projects.
