The firm of PLMJ was founded at the end of the sixties as a partnership between António Maria Pereira and Luis Sáragga Leal and in the following decade they were joined by two further founding partners, Francisco de Oliveira Martins and José Miguel Júdice. Over the years, generations of great lawyers have joined these four founding partners to make their contributions to PLMJ’s growth, strength, modernisation and vision of the future.
The policies of internationalisation and specialisation pursued by PLMJ since its first beginnings have led to the firm’s impressive and sustained growth over the subsequent years.
In 2007, PLMJ celebrated its 40th anniversary at the service of society and justice. Symbolically, this anniversary coincided with the implementation of an internal restructuring aimed at rising to meet the growing challenges inherent to providing first class legal services.
