PLMJ is one of Portugal’s leading law firms and has established itself as a point of reference in the practice of law in this country through its dynamism, capacity for innovation and the quality of its services.

It is a full-service and multidisciplinary office with 45 years’ experience and an unparalleled team that places great emphasis on specialisation and practices in all areas of the law. With a team of more than 220 lawyers, including 49 partners, PLMJ is the largest Portuguese law firm.

Based in Lisbon, the firm has offices in Oporto and Faro as well as a network of joint ventures covering Coimbra, the Azores, Guimarães, Viseu e Madeira.

PLMJ has built up a strong network of joint ventures across the Portuguese-speaking countries where synergies are generated by a common language and culture, especially in Angola, Mozambique, Brazil, Macao and Cape Verde.

Our network spreads across the markets which are the main target for Portuguese foreign investment: the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and also in China. This provides cross-border legal services with cost-effectiveness and deep knowledge of local markets and legal systems.
