About Us

CRA Global is an association of independent law firms providing high quality legal services in the Portuguese spoken jurisdictions. CRA Global was established in January 2007 by a group of lawyers with the aim to provide to their clients a more consistent and integrated legal assistance across the legal jurisdictions of the “lusofonia” world.

The lawyers that compose CRA Global are duly prepared to advise and respond to their clients’ most challenging demands, based on a business perspective and according to the market perception.

CRA Global members offer a variety of legal services to utilize their local knowledge and personal relationships with the business, investment and contacts in their jurisdictions to service the needs of our clients – «be global for local». Our lawyers are solution-oriented and to achieve optimal results for our clients, we understand the importance of creative thinking to overcome apparent obstacles. Thanks to collaboration with colleagues in all offices, we can efficiently solve local problems.

With the globalization of markets, the legal environment has become more complex and a global vision is an essential requirement when seeking solutions to cross jurisdictional legal issues. Through our network of medium-sized independent law firms we have all benefits of a big global firm, while giving clients the advantage of working with reputable local firms in which partners still keep the personal contact and relationship with their clients.

CRA Global members are experienced in advising clients engaged in international transactions. particular importance is placed upon the need to bridge not only legal and linguistic differences, but also cultural differences between negotiating parties, which is why clients often call CRA Global partners to be present in the business negotiations from an early stage.

CRA Global members are chosen from among the top law firms in their jurisdiction and work together on a non-exclusive basis.
