Vieira Law Firm is a Portuguese law firm founded in the city of Braga with growing relevance in national and international markets.

Our history began with Nuno da Silva Vieira, the founding partner and an enthusiastic defender of a true legal industry in Portugal. Such legal industry is articulated to provide a global response, with a focus on the Portuguese-speaking world and geo-strategic position of Portugal in the world.

At the age of 25, our founder, decided to open his first law firm and to work as a solo attorney in a small village named Amares. At the age of 31, he identified the opportunity to provide personalized legal services, based on skill and detail, which made our firm stand out.

The high ethical standards and professional accuracy of our founder are unquestionable and today, at 38 years old, he is proud to have a team with whom he shares the same dedication of his first day.

We take part in an extraordinary journey and we will continue to design the history of this law firm. We recognise the essence, the promise and the passion imparted by our founder and for that reason we develop our skills in a tripartite dimension: as people; professionals and as active members of society.

The demand for this profession urges us to be innovative and, for that reason, we are at the core of the technological debate on legal professions. It’s time to act, to understand the journey of each one of our clients, and this is our Big Picture.

Those who know us know that it is so.

The essence of Vieira Law Firm is the offer of complete legal services, based on the true needs of the clients and on the way they perceive our services. Our promise is based on close and meticulous monitoring, with adequate reporting on current affairs which builds up trust in the future. All employees share a passion centered on creating value for our customers.
