On the evening of January 13th, 2021, the Portuguese Prime Minister laid out the exact measures that would encompass a 2-week second lockdown caused by Covid-19 in Portugal. What concerns our clients, and moreover those coming in the next month with confirmed SEF appointments, the government assured the continuation of those public offices and would honor “already-made” previous appointments. Banks, notary offices, and tax administration offices will all be open. Offices are urged to promote teleworking practices from home.
So, business-as-usual for our team of lawyers and back-up staff who will strive to offer continuous support to our clients and partners while complying with the law.
