The firm now has 58 partners among a total of 281 lawyers, all of whom work on a daily basis to find the most effective and innovative solutions, to ensure we exceed the expectations of our clients.

" The firm has placed great importance on a policy of organic growth and recognition of the professional merit and technical and human qualities of our lawyers. The appointment of three new partners and seven new managing associates reflects our commitment to strengthening PLMJ in an increasingly competitive market, in which the talent, seniority and experience that characterise PLMJ's lawyers make all the difference", says PLMJ managing partner, Luís Pais Antunes.

The promotion of three new partners and seven new managing associates, who join the five new managing associates already announced, closes the current cycle of promotion of lawyers at PLMJ – lawyers who had a remarkable year in 2016. In promoting these lawyers, PLMJ has consolidated its leading position in the market and has strengthened its team and degree of seniority to ensure that 2017 will be an even better year in defending the rights and interests of its clients.
