Practice Areas


Because people can be the most difficult resource to manage, we promote a practical approach and we guarantee the strategy that best suits your need.

CCA provides its clients with advice on various labour and Social Security issues, including corporate restructuring, support in corporate transactions having an impact on labour relations, and strategic advice in the implementation of human resources management and profitability policies, acting as a preventive measure or for the sake of work compliance, without ever forgetting the reality and the activity in which the employer is involved.

The Team has extensive experience in conducting labour disputes, assisting the Client in a continuous and concerted manner throughout legal proceedings or in the context of very complex negotiations. Our work also includes the development of several contractual instruments, such as employment contracts, revocation agreements, and teleworking. We also contribute to the development of compensation and benefits programs, stock options, or pension plans.

On the other hand, we also support companies in the process of downsizing and we also intervene in the secondment of foreign citizens or in cases of expatriation of Portuguese citizens.

Our team provides close assistance and reactive action to reduce risks and avoid unforeseen events that could have a negative impact on our Clients' activities.
