In Portugal, lawyers have notarial powers, equivalent to Notary Offices.
Lawyers are allowed to perform signature recognition, carry out translations, authenticate copies of documents, celebrate the purchase and sale of a property with or without bank financing, constitute a (mutual) loan with or without the constitution of a mortgage, formalize the transfer of loans between Banks with cancellation of the old mortgage and constitution of a new one in favor of the Bank to which the loan was transferred, constituting a mortgage, donation, sharing and/or division of common property that is in co-ownership.
Lawyers can also draw up private powers of attorney and formalize extrajudicial notifications.
Personalized service in which the client will present the specific case to lawyers who, based on their professional knowledge and vast experience, will provide the necessary clarifications.
It is important to mention that all information is protected by Attorney–client privilege and data protection laws.
