  • All regulatory aspects pertaining to promotions, sponsorship and marketing agency agreements, comparative advertising campaigns and disputes, labeling and brand protection
  • Drafting of all relevant types of agreements for consumers, including credit  agreements
  • Advising companies on structuring distribution relationships compliant to EU and Portuguese competition law
  • Restructuring existing franchise and distribution relationships and advising in relation to orderly franchise and dealership terminations
