Expertise Industries

At Morais Leitão we have a team of lawyers with extensive experience in providing legal counsel to companies of the defense sector.

Our experience covers public procurement procedures related to the acquisition of equipment and the provision of services in the defense area, the negotiation and performance of public contracts in this field and the procedures for granting licences for the transfer, import and export of military equipment. We also have in-depth knowledge of the interpretation and application of legislation in this area, including European Union directives on defence procurement and the transfer of military equipment between Member States, offset agreements and the Military Planning Law.

Our team also has sound experience in litigation arising from the performance of these contracts, namely advising clients in international arbitration.
