Do I need legal protection insurance in Portugal?
Anyone needs to have legal cover because there are many day-to-day situations in which you may find yourself involved in a dispute or in a situation where you need to assert your rights and interests. But especially expats & foreigners living in Portugal are more vulnerable to problems because they do not know well the system or the way companies and entities work in Portugal and therefore we advise them to have taken out a legal protection insurance. These are some of the situations:
– Problems arising from rental contracts;
– Problems with your employer;
– If you are a businessman (you will need a legal protection insurance on behalf of the company) to solve problems with suppliers or competitors;
– Problems with internet or distance purchases;
– If you are a victim of fraud or theft on the Internet;
– Defence of your rights as a Consumer;
Remember that some multi-risk insurance policies, such as home or business insurance, already include legal protection cover. This can be activated if the claim is covered by the scope of insurance, however, most of these covers are limited (for example up to a maximum of 3,000 euros) and only have a small number of claims that they cover. It is therefore advisable to take out specific additional legal protection insurance to help you cope with unexpected legal expenses.

Legal Protection Insurance - in-house lawyers or free choice of lawyers?
Legal protection insurance in Portugal offers two systems of legal coverage: insurance that offers coverage through in-house lawyers (concerted network of lawyers) or the system of free choice of lawyer. Both systems have their advantages and disadvantages: the concerted network insurance has a more affordable price but the client will have to rely on the company’s lawyers to take his case. Insurance with free choice of lawyer allows the client to choose the right professional for each situation, but usually with more expensive premiums or with limited coverage per claim. C1 Broker studies and compares the different legal protection insurances on the market in order to provide you with quality advice.
