Signed procuração with a lawyer – not sure I trust them anymore. Do I have anything to be concerned about?

Signed procuração with a lawyer - not sure I trust them anymore. Do I have anything to be concerned about?

Hi, my wife and I needed to obtain NIF numbers in Portugal (we live in a different EU country). We found a lawyer online and signed a Power of Attorney document with them. The process takes much more time than expected and advertised, and I grew a little anxious about the fact that we signed this power of attorney. We don’t have any property or business in Portugal, so I can hardly imagine how it can be used against us, but, as I don’t fully understand it, maybe it makes sense to talk to another lawyer? Or is it a standard process and I have nothing to be concerned about?

Here is the document:
