Practice Areas

Civil law is one of the areas of tradition and specialisation of Caiado Guerreiro.

In the area of civil law contracts, Caiado Guerreiro is oriented to rendering legal services in all areas, namely divorce proceedings and regulation of parental responsibilities, as well as assistance in inheritance proceedings, inheritance planning – tax, wills, donation, wealth management, family undertakings, acquisition of nationality and right of residency.

In the last few years, Caiado Guerreiro has successfully assisted some of the wealthiest Portuguese families with inheritance proceedings, namely the biggest Portuguese inheritance.

The increasing internationalisation of wealth and the changes suffered by the traditional family institution compel to a new approach to civil, family and inheritance law. Aiming at avoiding inheritance related litigation, we have significant experience in assisting private individuals who, under coordination and in general consensus, plan and enter into agreements on matters such as parental responsibilities, divorce settlement or partition proceedings, fostering non-judicial solutions.

This practice area is recognised by the main international directories, amongst which Legal 500, Chambers & Partners and ACQ 5.
