Against a backdrop of the growing internationalisation of Portuguese companies, the Francophone or French market, which has always been a traditional target for Portuguese exporters, continues to rank highly in Portugal’s external economic relations. It is essential that those involved in trade operations between the two countries receive legal support that lives up to their expectations.
To provide such support, the French Desk has been formed from a group of PLMJ lawyers who are either bilingual or have an excellent command of French and whose academic training was conducted in Portugal and/or in France. The French Desk also benefits from privileged relationships with an extensive network of French legal professionals made up of lawyers, legal executives and notaries.
“A network of joint ventures in a number of Portuguese-speaking countries around the world means that clients can be assured not only of a broader-based service on an international level, but also that a good proportion of the firm’s lawyers have first-hand experience working in the very jurisdictions in which they are doing business.”
