About Us

BCH LAWYERS is a law firm which was established in Lisbon, Portugal in 1990.

Although BCH LAWYERS has grown throughout the years with regards to the volume, complexity and relevance of our work, we remain a ‘boutique law firm’ which prides itself on focusing on a select number of clients and their cases. We have not sought an ambitious expansion program nor to diversify our services beyond those which we can do with reasonable degree of excellence.

For over 25 years, we have assisted a wide range of such exclusive clients at both the domestic and international level.

BCH LAWYERS is the market-leader in Litigation & Arbitration (both domestic and international). This is certainly our main area of strength and what sets us apart from the competition.

Additionally, we do assist our clients with related ancillary matters in Tax Law, Administrative Law, Intellectual Property Law, IT Law, Entertainment Law, Business & Commercial Law, Banking Law and International Contracts.

We have provided legal services (in consultancy, in litigation and in arbitration) to major Portuguese banks and financial institutions, insurance companies, IT/software solution providers as well as to electrical components companies, among others. We have also provided a wide range of services in real estate transactions and regularly assist real estate promoters and the buyers of properties in Portugal.

Having a keen business sense, being dedicated, thinking creatively, applying specialist knowledge, sharing our know-how, keeping to dead-lines, and being organized – these are the characteristics that define BCH LAWYERS. By remaining a small law firm, with colleagues who have worked together for years, we manage to build up extremely close contacts with our clients and provide them truly be-spoke and personalised service.

Rui Barreira, who initially created the firm, has been nominated several times as one of the 10 Top Lawyers in Portugal by Chambers Europe. He is supported in the practice by several other highly qualified specialists, all of whom are, in their spheres, well renowned.
