Partner Interview

LUÍS ABREU COUTINHO

∙ What will be the most important market trend affecting your clients’ sector over the next 12 months? ∙

The tourism sector, no doubt. Portugal is definitely on the radar when it comes to top choices of European destinations to travel to and also to live in. The real estate sector is booming and we’re delighted.

∙ What has been your most memorable day as a lawyer? ∙

When I won an appeal in the Portuguese Supreme Court of Justice as a trainee and when I assisted one of Portugal’s biggest foreign investment operations – IKEA plants in the north of Portugal.

∙ Why did you become a lawyer? ∙

A calling. How else could you do the job? I come from a family of lawyers stretching back several generations. When you grow up in this environment and with this DNA, it’s hard to picture yourself doing anything different.
