Carla Monteiro

Thank you very much for clicking on my profile. My name is Carla and I have more than 15 years of experience practicing law. I’m from Cabo Verde and was educated here but then relocated to Portugal and hold a degree in Law from the University of Lisbon and a Post-Graduate in Commercial Law from the Universidade Catolica Portuguesa in Lisbon. I worked at a prestigious local firm in Lisbon for three years and then had a partnership opportunity to come back to Cabo Verde after three years in Portugal. The law office Carla Monteiro was born on October 2008 from the partnership with Alexandra Pereira, a lawyer in Portugal with over 25 years of proven experience in the areas of real estate law and assistance in the consolidation and development of tourism. I subsequently created my own law firm in Cabo Verde (CMA – Carla Monteiro & Associados, Law Firm, RL, in December 2015), which I started as a sole practitioner but have subsequently grown to five lawyers and three trainees. 

By local standards we are a solid and reputed local firm with a presence on the islands of Sal and Boavista, both important tourism and real estate development hubs. We advise clients in corporate law, as well as litigation, labour and tax. We work with a number of international clients, investors in hospitality and tourism in general.”

I have two beautiful twin babies who take up a lot of my personal time. I’m a member of the CPLP Legal Association of Lawyers called Global CPLP Iuris, which provides legal and business consultancy services in the CPLP countries, in close cooperation with the CPLP Economic Community Exporters Union. I also take a keen interest in local philanthropy, for the most disadvantaged demographic of the population on the island
