International Desks

The German Desk is an in-house team at Morais Leitão focused on clients from German-speaking countries, drawing on our extensive experience in multi-jurisdictional legal counsel. This team liaises with the various Morais Leitão Legal Circle teams to provide comprehensive legal support in the network's jurisdictions.


The Portuguese market has attracted particular interest from these countries, due to its growing complexity and internationalisation. The German Desk provides services to investors, companies, institutions and other law firms. German-speaking clients can use the German Desk to operate in multiple jurisdictions with a very significant reduction of legislative diversity barriers. It provides clients with a single, dedicated point of contact who coordinates and articulates their needs with the specialised resources, according to the subject matter and jurisdiction.
