Litigation services for companies and individuals
At Gil Figueira & Devillet Lima Advogados we find that litigation matters require careful attention, experience, and expertise.
Our litigation practice works hand in hand with other practices, because our goal is to provide advice that strategically aligns litigation and business objectives.
We have advised on disputes involving distinct industries and various areas of the law. Our team protects and enforces the interests of both private and corporate clients.
Our lawyers have represented clients in court, mediation, arbitration, and settlement, at all stages of a dispute. Our team represents clients in varied types of disputes, namely general commercial disputes, domestic and cross-border deal litigation, corporate governance disputes, family & probate disputes, regulatory defense, employment controversies, bankruptcy defense, settlements, appeals, and arbitration.
Our team advises on how to mitigate and manage risk both in circumstances where an investigation has begun or claim has been filed or, in circumstances where clients are at risk of being challenged and negotiation is needed.
We represent domestic and foreign clients regarding local matters and advise on multi-jurisdictional disputes. We regularly advise foreign clients regarding court proceedings in Portugal and advise local clients on the intricacies of filing claims abroad.
