Testimonials for Leonel
Oscar Evans, Lisbon
As I don't speak the Portugees I have to say that Leonel have been absolutely exceptional and professional in all areas.
Not only was he adding value to our business he also took a lot of his personal time explaining other things that have helped me and my company. I will highly recommend him to my other business partners who will open accounts in Portugal and for myself on my next ventures.
Everything was a 5-star treatment from Leonel!

Siamak Maleki, Lisbon
Leonel was very kind, patient and helpful. Even before making sure that we will work together, he spent a lot of time explaining the situation to me.
To improve even more, I think it would be better if you have some kind of links (web link) in which you explain Portuguese law and other useful information to the customers.
