Corporate Law

In the area of corporate law Morais Leitão provides permanent, integrated and cross-practice advice, ranging from the constitution, reorganization and restructuring of companies, to the representation at general meetings, dealing with the drawing up of proposals, minutes and other documentation related to general meetings and the coordination of all the subsequent legal obligations, as well as handling the preparation and drawing up of documentation for the meetings of the other corporate bodies and internal committees.

In addition to the general monitoring of company law compliance, we further ensure the exercise of the function of secretary in various companies.

Regular assistance provided includes restructuring, capital increases and reductions, as well as assistance in the approval of accounting processes and distribution of dividends and reserves, share repurchase programs, recruitment procedures and appointment of corporate bodies, definition and approval of remuneration policies.

In this area we offer in-depth knowledge in supporting compliance with the legal duties provided by issuers of shares admitted to trading on a regulated market in Portugal, on a regular basis and generally in the context of current activity and individual operations (in matters such as information duties, market abuse regime, audit scheme and remuneration practices).
