Ms Jardim´s track record in citizenship for Sephardic Jews is highly impressive. Her hands-on approach, calm demeanour and sensitivity helps put everyone at ease. Her passion for the subject is highly infectious.

Portuguese Citizenship and Residence

We advise on all routes into Portuguese citizenship, by descent, residence, marriage, or Sephardi Jewish ancestry. We are well aware that citizenship carries a deep symbolic value across generations. In a world of increased mobility and uncertainty, citizenship is also a plan B for the safety of family and wealth. We feel passionate about “turning strangers into partners”.

In targeted areas of immigration law, such as for highly qualified individuals or investors, we provide a personalised service different from that of large service providers. Our citizenship track record also means that we are well equipped for converting a residence permit into citizenship.

Rita was recommended to me for my investment pivot from Asia to Portugal. I find her timely, clear, thorough, professional, and highly effective, particularly to those new to Portugal and its laws. She has proven herself time and again.

Real Estate

From the full legal due diligence, through all aspects of transferring legal title of real property until completion, we assist our clients in navigating the process of buying real estate in Portugal. We strive to make this as reassuring as possible, bridging gaps in cultural and legal differences. We endeavour to build good relationships with property brokers and the seller´s legal advisors without ever losing sight of the independence required from a lawyer and steering clear from any conflict of interests.

Rita has helped me on all legal and practical actions related to my moving to Portugal. She gave me the contact of her colleague in tax affairs who has been very professional and valuable to handle all the practicalities related to my taxation here in Portugal. Moreover it has been a pleasure to see how friendly and pleasant their co-operation is.

Tax and Other Areas of Law

In areas such as tax law, which are key to our clients´ decisions to reside or purchase property in Portugal, we work seamlessly with like-minded professionals, with the same degree of service culture and international exposure. When clients request our input in other areas, such as drafting of wills, employing domestic staff, company or urban planning law, for example, we select and cooperate with the best advisors. We may remain involved in the engagement of external lawyers, acting as project managers, but we are equally happy with stepping aside, whilst keeping a watchful eye. We believe that what goes around, comes around anyway.
