simultaneously in Luxembourg and Portugal;
None of the big and middle sized law firms as
a Portuguese Desk or dedicated department;
Limited know how of the Portuguese legal
system and legal formal technical language;
Competitors understanding PT mainly work in
Litigation not in “Droit des Affairs”.
Opportunities
Interesting Real Estate investment
opportunities owned by Banks and Developers;
Portugal as market player in IT;
Portuguese SME s exporting on a global basis;

Non-Habitual Tax Regime for EU citizens
wishing to live in Portugal.
Risks
New idea to be implemented;
Fear of taking the challenge and risk to
explore this market niche;
Negative image due to Portuguese Debt
Crisis;
Some Portuguese speaking countries are still
seen as exotic and unconventional (Brazil and
Angola) under Luxembourg patterns;
Limited Market Research
