Manuel Protásio, partner, and Catarina Coimbra, associate, contributed for the 6th edition of the international guide ICLG: Mining Law 2019, recently published by the Global Legal Group, which analyses the sector in various jurisdictions regarding the actual legislation.

The lawyers wrote the chapter about the portuguese jurisdiction, where they develop and explain the mining legistlation in force, starting with relevant authorities and legislations.

“The Portuguese legal system is integrated in the civil/continental law system, which means that the majority of the legal provisions are comprised and enacted by statutes, written law being its primary source.”
