In of the face of globalisation and the particular interest Portuguese companies now have in moving into international markets, the provision of first class legal advice and support is essential. This support begins at the pre-contractual stage, for example in predicting issues that are likely to arise and in supplying a network of internal and national contacts. Our support continues through the agreement stage including documentation logistics and the drafting and approval of contracts. If necessary, we are also prepared to use the full force of our international experience in litigation and arbitration to protect our clients’ interests if disputes arise.
The main focus of the PLMJ international trade team is on outgoing investment with a view to providing a support base for our Portuguese clients to succeed internationally or to complement the support our clients provide to others in this field.
Our services are focused on:
The fact that the international trade team is part of PLMJ’s professional structure enables it to benefit fully from the firm’s extensive range of resources and the across-the-board experience of its lawyers and paralegals. Through its professional partnerships and networks, PLMJ is able to provide support for its clients, as well as access to legal services in practically every jurisdiction in the world, and especially in Portuguese-speaking markets, in more sophisticated jurisdictions and in emerging economies.
“Leading the way in this evolutionary process is PLMJ, the country’s largest law firm and one of the first to pioneer modern legal techniques.”
