RFF & Associados is the first Portuguese law firm specialized in tax law, customs law and corporate law (tax & business law ). Its practice is focused in legal and economic issues, more specifically on corporate and tax law matters from a domestic, Communitary and international perspective. The firm's practice is based in Portugal with a cross-jurisdictional approach in, among others, Portuguese-speaking countries such as Angola, Mozambique, Brazil, Cape-Verde, Timor and Macao.

The firm's lawyers have originated from diverse backgrounds, but have become accustomed to working together over the years - in law firms, on working groups, or in other state or private entities and associations, and have now come together in this common project. Working alongside RFF & Associados too are several external consultants with different training backgrounds, in addition to the lawyers and other local lawyers in Portuguese-speaking countries.

RFF & Associados seeks to foster lasting relations - of trust and sharing - and to provide the proper legal solutions for the very specific needs of each one of its clients, whether individuals or businesses. It seeks to anticipate situations, foresee problems and provide dedicated and competent advice and assistance - legal, business and fiscal. It is therefore committed to the quality and efficiency of the services rendered, acting with diligence, dedication, enthusiasm and competence, and in strict compliance with the highest moral values and ethical standards.

The firm is connected with several universities and other national and international higher education institutions through Master's Degree courses, post-graduate courses and specialist courses, thereby seeking to consolidate its expertise on a solid theoretical and professional base. In Portugal, the most noteworthy of these are with the Instituto Europeu (IE) and the Instituto de Direito Económico, Financeiro e Fiscal (IDEFF) of the Law Faculty of the Universidade de Lisboa, the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Economic and Business Sciences (PAFISC) of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa, the Instituto para o Desenvolvimento e Estudos Económicos, Financeiros e Empresariais (IDEFE) of the Instituto Superior de Economia e Gestão, the Law Faculty of the Universidade do Minho, and the Instituto Superior de Gestão. Connections of note with institutes on an international level include the founding partner's link with the Cape Verdean Fundação Direito e Justiça, the Law Faculty of Universidade Agostinho Neto, in Luanda, and the Universiteit Leiden (International Tax Center).
