Banking & Finance

Portugal

CMS Rui Pena & Arnaut has a wide experience and strong competence in assisting banks, other financial and loan institutions in national and cross border transactions, in:

  • Corporate Finance
  • Acquisition finance
  • Leveraged & mezzanine finance
  • Real estate finance
  • Projects and infrastructures finance
  • Structured finance

Other than an important emphasis within the regulatory and supervision area, we also have strong competences and accumulated experience in restructuring and turnarounds, as well as in transactions involving distressed assets and non performing loans.

We have, for several years, been assisting banks and multilateral institutions in investment and infrastructure projects finance in Portuguese-speaking countries, in particular in Angola.

The team is composed of a set of young professionals with a vast experience in assisting complex financial transactions, with a strong multi-jurisdictional rationale, total dedication and with great capacity to bring an added value to the transactions in which they participate.

Acknowledgement

Clients praise the team's pragmatic approach: "The firm was extremely hands-on and has always adopted a practical, straight to the point attitude in resolving issues. The lawyers' quick responses, availability and accessibility should also be highlighted."
