As all information on how to change board members in Portugal on the LCB Site by nature is generic (i.e. does not include specific requirements for listed companies, special requirements in statutory documents or as otherwise stipulated in any type of special law), we strongly recommend seeking legal advice before actually changing any board members in Portugal.
