Legal Advice

The special circumstances we are currently living have imposed significant alterations to the regular functioning of the GDA Foundation, as well as some temporary changes regarding this service, which we provide free of charge to GDA members for questions pertaining to their professional activity.

The legal advice services provided by the GDA Foundation, exclusively for professional situations, will henceforth be provided via email.

If you need to request these services, please explain your case by sending an email to:

Diana Trindade

Your email will then be forwarded to Estela Santos or Valter Lobo, who will examine your situation and contact you.

The Legal Advice service provided by the GDA Foundation aims to meet the needs of GDA members in the context of the exercise of their professional activity.

This legal advice acts in areas directly or indirectly related with the practice of artistic professions, including contracts, job offers, declarations for the authorization or termination of the use of rights, resolution of issues concerning Social Security, the Tax Authority and other public entities.

  • In Lisbon, legal advice is managed by Estela Santos on Mondays, starting at 15:00.
  • In Porto, legal advice is managed by Valter Lobo on Tuesdays, in the morning and afternoon.
