General Presentation

Founded in 1989, FCB Sociedade de Advogados is a leading independent law firm in Portugal. We are, first and foremost, a client-driven full service law firm, delivering an integrated, effective and tailored service and preserving close and trusting relationships with our clients.

Developing strong international connections since the very beginning, we established associations with renowned English, Spanish and Brazilian firms. In 2005, we set up an office in Angola through an association with EVC Advogados, becoming one of the first Portuguese firms to enter this expanding market. We decided to replicate the same model in Mozambique in 2013, going for a real presence in the country, by means of an association with the local firm AG Advogados. In 2017, we created a new international legal network, FCB Glocal, formally bringing together the three firms.

Cross-border work is at the core of our practice and the majority of our clients are international companies and conglomerates or their local subsidiaries in Portugal, Angola and Mozambique. We continue, however, to maintain a significant private client practice, mainly focused on Tax, Real Estate and Litigation work.

Currently, we have offices in Lisbon, Porto and Faro (Portugal), associated offices in Luanda (Angola) and Maputo (Mozambique), through FCB Glocal, as well as a representation office in Madrid (Spain).
