The Firm

The firm was founded where it still works today, in 1964, by Joaquim Manuel Gomes Motta, incorporating the Clients brought by his Father José Gomes Motta, who had an outstanding presence in the Lisbon law scene in the decades from the 1920’s to the 1960´s.

In 1990, Joaquim Manuel Gomes Motta and José Barros Sales, who worked in informal association with the former since 1974, created the firm Gomes Motta & Sales, Sociedade de Advogados.

After Joaquim Manuel Gomes Motta’s decease in 1992, the firm changed its name to Barros Sales & Associados, Sociedade de Advogados. In the same year, João Boto, who had been collaborating with the firm since 1985, joined the firm.

Later on, in 1996, Dário Moura Vicente entered the firm.

In 2003, Manuel Sales acquired the quality of partner.

Finally, in 2010, Nuno Aureliano began his collaboration with the firm.
