CRBA is a law firm with offices in Lisbon and Oporto, founded in 2002, and comes from the common practice of its partners who sought the corporate organization model to increase the quality and efficiency of legal practice. Currently, with a team of about 30 lawyers, 6 consultants and 7 employees, CRBA provides litigation services and legal advice in all the relevant areas of practise and before all jurisdictions, based on the expertise sharing by its members.

 

CRBA directs its legal services to quality:

- Excellence of legal services

CRBA tries to ally theoretical consistency with pragmatism and speed of response as essential in the interests of its clients.   

At CRBA, all legal work is performed or supervised by its partners, which are all lawyers with active enrolment at the Portuguese Bar Association and in full professional activity. 

On the other hand, due to its size, CRBA has a broad team of lawyers that allows CRBA representation in all practice areas.

For this purpose, the coordination of the teams is ensured by the partners, who are responsible for the technical quality of the work. 

 

- Investment in people

The quality of CRBA’s legal services depends on daily work of its members, especially lawyers. That is why CRBA seeks the creation and stabilization of a cohesive team, motivated and technically skilled to render high quality legal services. That is also why CRBA invests in recurrent training of its staff.    

 

- A quality system of organization 

CRBA considers the connection between the quality of legal services and highly structured organizational models as essential, extending this quality to the full scope of services.    

CRBA established its activity bearing in mind the full compliance with all fundamental values of legal practice, acting in accordance with the deontological rules applicable to the render of legal services, with full independence.

At CRBA we believe that we can also make a difference in the social responsibility area. Therefore CRBA regularly renders legal services in a “pro bono” basis to selected clients/files.

In order to provide its clients high quality and reliable assistance, virtually anywhere in the world, CRBA is part of Legal NetLink Alliance and REDEJUR, two international law firm networks.
