Field of Expertise: White-Collar crimes

Carlos Alexandre is a judge, responsible for the Central Court for Criminal Investigation of DCIAP (Central Department of Criminal Investigation and Action), in Lisbon. He is known, in Portugal, as a ‘super judge’ for being involved in high profile judicial cases that include some of the biggest political and business figures of the country such as a former prime-minister and a former banker, head of the biggest private bank of Portugal, at the time.

His interventions in the most mediated cases of financial and economic crime led him to public attention which, in turn, led to Carlos Alexandre being admired by some and hated by others, for the same reason: the constant challenge to the most powerful.
