It seems now there’s a lot of things you can do without Lawyer.
- Get a NIF (Bordr.io)
- Open a Bank Account (e.g. apparently ActivoBank is easy via app once got NIF)
- Getting money to Bank (InteractiveBrokers/[Tranfser]wise for affordable conversion)
- For Venture Capital funds (e.g. Stag Fund Management) you could presumably just transfer the funds and handle this yourself (do your own due-dilligence)
If you’re lucky to have an Embassy/Consulate (but can’t speak Portugese) in your city (as I do) could you do most of this yourself without even leaving your city?
Do Lawyers save you any on-the-group trips?
I just want to understand if I could get the NIF, Bank, even the SEF Account/Apply and have them “assist”/review here and there for a much smaller fee.
