Wills, Estate Planning and Living Wills

At TP&A we are supporters of preventive advocacy, and we always advise our international clients with investments in Portugal to ensure that their assets are covered by a will.With the recent EU Succession Regulation, this has become even more pertinent given that there is a possibility to choose the law applicable to your succession. A will is therefore an excellent tax planning instrument and the only way to ensure that your hard-earned assets pass onto those who you intend to benefit on your death. In addition, people in certain family situations, such as second marriages or unmarried partners, should ensure that their loved ones are protected. TP&A’s duly qualified lawyers are able to draft wills to deal with clients’ Portuguese assets that can be read in conjunction with their existing foreign wills.

In addition, it is now possible in Portugal to draw up a living will setting out how you wish to be treated medically should you be unable to make this decision at the time, and at TP&A, we can advise our clients on this matter accordingly.
