GLA – Gabinete Legal Angola and TTA –
Sociedade de Advogados, the members of PLMJ Network in Angola and
Mozambique, have achieved nine nominations.
The list of nominees for the fourth edition of The African Legal
Awards has been published. These awards are organised by the
prestigious British publication Legal Week and PLMJ Network has
achieved a total of nine nominations. It was this network, with a
presence in important markets like Angola and Mozambique, which won
the most nominations and, in doing so consolidated its position as
a legal services provider in Portuguese-speaking countries. These
awards recognise the work of large international firms and of a few
of Africa's leading independent firms.
Among all the nominees, PLMJ Network is the one that has
achieved the most nominations in the greatest range of practice
areas, including M&A, litigation, property, transport and
infrastructure, and employment. This achievement contributes to
consolidating its increasingly strong position as a full-service
firm, not only in Portugal, but also in all the countries where
PLMJ Network has a presence.
TTA, the member of PLMJ's network for Mozambique, has been
nominated for the fourth consecutive year in six categories that
include non-institutional areas like social responsibility and
innovation. GLA, the member of PLMJ's network for Angola, has
achieved three nominations this year in categories including
'Property Team of the Year' and 'Employment Team of the
For PLMJ managing partner, Luís Pais Antunes, "It is
remarkable that with only six years operating in Angola and five in
Mozambique, the work done by the team is dedicated to Africa (GLA,
TTA and the PLMJ Desks) has been so widely recognised For Bruno
Xavier de Pina, the partner who heads the PLMJ Angola Desk,
"this greater number of nominations is further recognition of
PLMJ's unshakeable determination and great merit in building
and growing this enormous international project".
Besides this recognition, PLMJ has also recently been nominated
for The Law Society Excellence Awards in the category of
'Excellence in International Legal Services'. This
nomination recognises the evolution of a model for better
intercommunication and integration of services and practice areas
between the operations in Angola and Mozambique. The aim of this
model is to achieve ever greater efficiency and to strengthen the
synergies and strategic focus for PLMJ Network, and this
recognition confirms the network's strong position as a
full-service, independent network with a strong international
presence, in particular, in Portuguese-speaking countries.
