PLMJ is Portugal’s largest law firm. It has one of the leading arbitration practices in the country and is the market leader for international arbitration. Twenty-five lawyers (including eight partners), of six different nationalities, based in offices in Europe and Africa, work as lawyers or arbitrators.
The team is equipped to represent clients in arbitrations in five languages (Portuguese, English, Spanish, French and German) and it has worked not only in Portugal, but in a number of other countries.
PLMJ is the only Portuguese law firm that has litigation and arbitration as distinct units and is therefore much more specialised. Many members of the team have postgraduate studies in arbitration and five of them have PhD (arbitration, public law, economy valuation, procedural law, evidence and causation).
