Banking litigation in Portugal
encompasses those legal actions brought against banks and financial services providers by individuals or by companies, in short, by their customers.
Common cases can include disputes that may arise in case of swap agreements, or agreements involving other financial instruments but will also include disputes that arise from the deceptive sale of financial products.
Portuguese courts will protect investors and individuals in these cases and plaintiffs can take legal action by bringing their case in front of a Portuguese Court. Legal aid is recommended in these cases and the experts at our law firm in Portugal
can offer you full legal assistance.
Banking litigation cases in Portugal
The types of causes of action against banks and financial institutions are diverse and not limited to only to financial services per se. In most cases, banking litigation in Portugal will have just as much to do with contractual breaches or with using abusive clauses in leasing contracts.
Class action lawsuits
or collection legal actions are not uncommon and, in these cases, a number of investors or companies in Portugal
will join forces to submit a joint claim against a financial institution
that has wronged them by selling misleading financial products.
Before deciding to take a case to court, it is always worthwhile to discuss with an expert. Our team of attorneys in Portugal can offer you a first case evaluation so that you may determine which is the most suitable course of action in your particular banking or financial issue.
