The origins of MG Advogados go back to the mid-fifties, when the father of one of the partners opened his law firm. Located at Avenida Fontes Pereira de Melo in Lisbon, Portugal, the law firm MG Advogados presently counts on about two dozen members of staff, among which lawyers, administrative and other employees.
The law firm fits into the “Law Boutique” category: a law firm that is specifically focused on a niche practice area, always favouring a close and personalised relation with the clients.
The core activity of the law firm MG Advogados is litigation, in the commercial and civil field, which is, essentially, complemented by legal advice in banking and finance, labour and real estate matters.
MG Advogados has a track record of decades of providing legal advice to credit institutions, financial companies and collective investment undertakings.
