Uría Menéndez was the first foreign law firm to provide legal services in Portugal. Over the last years we have grown from strength to strength and today have an excellent reputation in the Portuguese legal market. In 2010, the renowned firm Proença de Carvalho & Associados joined forces with Uría Menéndez and since then we have operated in Portugal as Uría Menéndez-Proença Carvalho.
At Uría Menéndez-Proença de Carvalho we advise on every aspect of business under Portuguese and EU law. All our lawyers speak Portuguese, Spanish, English and French, which allows us to offer our clients the best possible assistance on their national and international transactions.
In January 2015, after nearly 20 years working in the region, the firm took a ground-breaking step creating the first Latin-American integration between leading local firms (Philippi in Chile, and Prietocarrizosa in Colombia): Philippi, Prietocarrizosa & Uría (PPU), the first major Ibero-American firm. After an excellent first year, in January 2016 the firm integrated two Peruvian firms, Estudio Ferrero Abogados and Delmar Ugarte, becoming Philippi Prietocarrizosa Ferrero DU & Uría. The opening of a Peru office consolidates PPU’s position and confirms its status as a leading firm in the Pacific Alliance (Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru) as it is fast becoming a preeminent firm in Latin America.
