About us

CNT Lawyers

CNT Avocats has offices in Lisbon, Albufeira, and Caldas da Rainha. We mainly work in real estate, corporate, immigration and litigation law. Besides operating in the French-speaking market, we're experts in the North American (USA and Canada) and Asian markets.

Why CNT Avocats?

Because of the significant foreign investment in Portugal, namely from the French and North American markets. Our legal team provides personalized service to support these clients. It relies on the help of Portugal-based partners — namely accountants, real estate agents, economists, architects, engineers, and managers with extensive experience in this field.

As a law firm based in Portugal, CNT Avocats offers a differentiated and adapted response, especially in tax, property, family, and immigration law.

We also assist companies in employment, corporate and civil matters, as well as in obtaining residence permits, NHR, Golden Visa, purchase and sale agreements — plus companies incorporation, among others.
