Practice Areas

Advising clients on acquisitions, mergers and restructurings is undoubtedly one of the firm’s most important areas of focus, counting on a team with vast experience and technical specialised knowledge. Caiado Guerreiro has assisted some of the main M&A operations executed in the last decades in Portugal, thus acquiring a solid experience in this area, which, allied with the technical knowledge and the command of the current legislation, provides a very effective solution to the clients’ needs.

M&A transactions are increasingly complex, often involving many different jurisdictions and diverse areas of expertise. Having the capacity of structuring widely experienced and focused expert teams, the firm is able to provide clients with multidisciplinary teams to oversee throughout the entire process, from due diligence to negotiation, signing and closing of the transaction.

The firms’ curriculum includes some of the largest M&A operations in Portugal.

Our firm has assisted its clients in acquisitions, mergers and the setting-up of joint ventures in different industries, such as food processing, chemicals, beverages, telecommunications, natural gas, electrical equipment, oil refining and minerals, recycling of industrial residues and water, publishing, and civil construction. We also assisted clients in obtaining special grants and tax exemptions or incentives from local authorities for special investments.

In addition to transactional work, our corporate teams provide regular assistance in the different aspects of the ongoing commercial activities of our clients.

The Corporate, Commercial Law and M&A department of Caiado Guerreiro is recognised by the main international directories, amongst which Legal 500, Chambers & Partners and ACQ 5.
