This course will take place between September 13 and 22, 2021, and is addressed to all those interested in investing in this area in the Portuguese market. It will be taught exclusively in English and will have the participation of some of the most important specialists in this area in Portugal such as Joao Freire de Andrade, President of Portugal Fintech; Joao Lima da Silva, Counselor of the European Investment Fund; Jose Maria Rego, CEO of Raize, one of the largest investment communities in Portugal or Miguel de Azevedo Moura, Co-coordinator of the Master in Law at Nova School of Law. Abreu Advogados will be represented by partners Alexandra Courela, Ricardo Henriques and Rodrigo Formigal; professional partner Diogo Pereira Duarte, senior associate Isabel Pinheiro Torres and trainee lawyer Joao Carlos de Gusmao. “Crypto-activities are no longer a topic exclusive to a small niche of investors and have become an increasingly emerging reality, with an impact on various sectors of society. This is, therefore, the ideal time to understand and analyze the current national legislative scenario and identify the challenges and opportunities existing in our country around this theme, in what is the first course of its kind in Portugal”, highlights Diogo Pereira Duarte, partner of Abreu Advogados and one of the course coordinators. With the crypto-active market growing exponentially in the last few years, this course will focus on the regulatory and tax challenges that exist in Portugal and will be held online, via Zoom, between 5pm and 7pm, during weekdays, in a total of 16 hours.
