Abreu Advogados is the first Portuguese firm to join an international anti-fraud network

Abreu Advogados is the first Portuguese law firm to join the International Fraud Group, an international network of lawyers specialising in asset recovery operations and the fight against fraud.

The independent Portuguese firm will be part of this international group, which will allow for greater sharing of experiences, development of new practices and privileged contacts with specialists worldwide in this specific type of crime, thus guaranteeing the acquisition of new skills and solutions to continue providing innovative responses to all its clients.

Francisco Patrício, a partner at Abreu Advogados, will be the firm’s representative in this international network.

“Abreu Advogados always endeavours to be at the forefront of developing new solutions and synergies with national and international partners, so that we can provide the best possible response to our clients. The area of asset recovery has seen high growth in recent years worldwide due to the technological development we have seen, which has led to new and more creative types of fraud. We believe that joining a network as important as the International Fraud Group will guarantee our team more tools, helping us to get closer to providing a more complete, differentiating and complementary response to our clients.” says Francisco Patrício.

“The IFG are delighted that Abreu Advogados in Portugal have joined our ever growing network of  legal experts.  We welcome Partner Francisco Patricio and his team and look forward to working with them and strengthening our European footprint.”, mentions Gary Miller, Chairman of the International Fraud Group.  

The International Fraud Group has a combined experience of 30 years, with 48 members in 57 jurisdictions. In 2024, it was ranked Band 1 in the Chambers & Partners Global Guide 2024 Multi-Jurisdictional Directory. In addition to combating fraud, this international network is committed to developing areas such as Arbitration, White-Collar Crime, Crypto and Insolvency, the latter of which Francisco Patrício has been particularly involved in as coordinator and head of the area.
