MLGTS’ tax team on the shortlist to win 3 European Tax Awards

The tax team of Morais Leitão, Galvão Teles, Soares da Silva (MLGTS), coordinated by António Lobo Xavier and Francisco de Sousa da Câmara, is the only team of a Portuguese law firm on the shortlist for 3 different awards in the 2013 edition of the “European Tax  Awards”, granted by the magazine International Tax Review.

The MLGTS tax team is one of eight law firms and consultant companies candidates up for the award "Portuguese Tax Firm of the Year", which distinguishes the key players in taxation in Portugal. Our firm won this award in 2009.

Furthermore our tax team is also in the running for two other categories: “European Tax Disputes Firm of the Year” and “European Energy Tax Team of the Year”. The winners will be announced on 15 May 2013 in a ceremony held in London.

The International Tax Review, one of the most prestigious and internationally recognised publications in the area of tax consultancy, each year organises a ceremony to award the best tax firms in the European jurisdiction. International Tax Review’s editorial staff compiled shortlists and  selected winners for each award based on submissions and further research, which included interviews with practitioners and tax executives from companies throughout Europe. They also judge each submission according to its size, innovation and complexity.
