    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!
