Portugal: PLMJ Arbitration Recognised For The 4th Consecutive Year By The Global Arbitration Review - The Firm Is Among The 100 Best Law Firms In The World In This Area
Last Updated: 18 April 2017

Dear Clients and Partners,

We are very pleased to inform you about yet another important recognition for PLMJ Arbitration. For the fourth consecutive year, this practice has been named among the 100 best law firms in the world for arbitration and among the 10 best in the Mediterranean and North African region. This recognition comes from the Global Arbitration Review (GAR), the leading international arbitration publication, and is based on the work done in 2016, a year in which PLMJ Arbitration grew by more than 50% in terms of billing and achieved a number of mandates for international arbitrations, some of which bear no relation to Portugal.

The GAR has also launched its ART (Arbitrator Research Tool), a pioneering service to search for and identify the best international arbitrators, which will allow its users to have access to information on the experience, specialisation and procedural profile of the arbitrators appearing on its list. PLMJ partner José Miguel Júdice has been selected as one of the first 40 arbitrators listed in GAR ART, where he joins leading figures from the global arbitration community. In his words, "this choice only reflects the growing visibility of Portuguese arbitrators and of the common language on the international level. For this reason, it is a stimulus to progress in arbitration practice in the Portuguese-speaking world".

For Pedro Metello Nápoles, the co-head of PLMJ Arbitration, "this recognition is due to PLMJ's consistent focus on the area of arbitration and to putting together a team of arbitration specialists of six nationalities, who are fluent in five languages, have doctorates and masters, and extensive, consolidated experience as both lawyers and arbitrators".

This recognition by GAR follows on from other important achievements including the Iberian Law Firm of the Year award in 2015 and The Lawyer European Awards in 2012. Furthermore, in 2011, PLMJ founding partner, Luís Sáragga Leal, was named European Managing Partner of the Year.

Recognition and awards like these are the result of the trust our clients and partners place in us, and they also reflect our capacity to adapt and innovate in face of the challenges of recent years. This has led to strong operational performance and to PLMJ achieving a position of leadership that crosses borders. We will continue to do everything we can to maintain and improve the high standards we apply in all our work and in all the services we provide.
