Who we are
Who we are
Durham Agrellos was founded in 2017, born of the aspiration to create a differentiated project of legal advice from its base in Portugal.
We are specialized in tax law and private clients. It is our aim to place our experience at the service of our clients’ needs, providing solid, innovative and creative legal solutions to particularly complex matters.
We have adopted an institutional model of low leverage and high specialization, to ensure rigorous and personalized monitoring, guaranteeing that all hours dedicated to our clients result in effective value creation.
We believe that the solidity of the legal solutions we provide requires a constant effort to update and deepen our lawyers’ knowledge. That’s why we promote continuous training.
The presence of our lawyers at the Academy reflects the genetic institutional value of our firm. We demand a culture of the utmost rigour, hard work and sense of duty.
Where we are
We are based in Portugal, with offices in Porto and Lisbon. We assist clients worldwide, directly or in coordination with trusted advisors in Portugal and in other countries, namely Brazil, Luxembourg, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.
What we do
We are lawyers with special guidance for sensitive and complex issues in the field of tax law and in assistance to private clients.
We provide advice on matters related to the management and tax planning of business and estates. We have relevant experience in legal assistance to family- owned groups, notably in the field of inheritance planning. We also represent our clients in high-profile tax disputes.
We work closely with our clients and their advisors in Portugal or elsewhere. We provide advice on matters of origin or in connection with the Portuguese market, coordinating issues related to other jurisdictions with local experts.
