In February 2002, Teresa Patrício started to work as a sole practitioner setting up her own office. In November 2005, set up her Law Firm TERESA PATRÍCIO & ASSOCIADOS, due to the positive evolution of her practice.


Teresa Patricio & Associados is a niche law firm with dually qualified Portuguese advogados and English solicitors who are able to understand the specific needs of both national and foreign clients, both private and corporate, and provide tailored legal advice to meet their requirements.

The lawyers at TP&A have international experience to help them understand the needs of the clients and the firm has a close-knit team, focused on sustained growth, with a strong emphasis on professional development to ensure that the firm is able to accompany and remain at the forefront of the constantly changing legal landscape.

TP&A has experience in a full range of legal services aimed at providing support to private clients, corporate and institutional clients, and anyone looking to invest in Portugal.

In addition, given the dual qualification of its lawyers, they are able to understand the needs and concerns of foreign clients and to demystify and explain in clear terms the steps and procedures involved.

In parallel with its activity in a national level, the firm’s international work has been registering an evident and consistent development. Above all, this fact is due to the founder’s work experience, collaborating closely for over a decade with consolidated multinational Companies operating in Portugal.


TP&A has been registering progressive and consistent growth, due to the development of a professional culture of rigour, ethics and technical quality, proved by its efficiency and capacity to reply to its clients in a timely manner. TP&A prides itself on the level of care and personal contact it is able to provide to each and every one of its clients, privileging a personalized and permanent relation with the client, based on trust and understanding of their specific needs. This is due to the importance that is given by the Firm to the team’s training and its systematic updating, through internal training sessions and external seminars, lectures and debates. The firm offers each lawyer an annual scholarship. TP&A’s clients have therefore grown accustomed to high quality legal services, delivered effectively and in a timely manner.


TP&A is guided, in all aspects of its activity, by distinctive values that enable the firm to:

  • Privilege a personalized and permanent relation with the client, based on trust and understanding of the client’s specific needs;
  • Ensure proactive and quality legal services;
  • Provide clients with timely and objective replies;
  • Conceive and develop legal solutions that add value to the client’s activity, always with the objective of guaranteeing success for the client;
  • Developing a culture of excellence through the team’s permanent training and updating.
