GLA – Gabinete Legal Angola and TTA – Sociedade de Advogados, the members of PLMJ International Legal Network in Angola and Mozambique, have achieved nine nominations at The African Legal Awards 2016


The list of nominees for the fourth edition of The African Legal Awards has been published. These awards are organised by the prestigious British publication Legal Week and PLMJ Network has achieved a total of nine nominations. It was this network, with a presence in important markets like Angola and Mozambique, which won the most nominations and, in doing so consolidated its position as a legal services provider in Portuguese-speaking countries. These awards recognise the work of large international firms and of a few of Africa's leading independent firms.

Among all the nominees, PLMJ Network is the one that has achieved the most nominations in the greatest range of practice areas, including M&A, litigation, property, transport and infrastructure, and employment. This achievement contributes to consolidating its increasingly strong position as a full-service firm, not only in Portugal, but also in all the countries where PLMJ Network has a presence.

TTA, the member of PLMJ's network for Mozambique, has been nominated for the fourth consecutive year in six categories that include non-institutional areas like social responsibility and innovation. GLA, the member of PLMJ's network for Angola, has achieved three nominations this year in categories including ‘Property Team of the Year’ and ‘Employment Team of the Year’.

For PLMJ managing partner, Luís Pais Antunes, "It is remarkable that with only six years operating in Angola and five in Mozambique, the work done by the team is dedicated to Africa (GLA, TTA and the PLMJ Desks) has been so widely recognised.

For Tomás Timbane, international partner of PLMJ and Head of TTA, “the nomination of TTA for the fourth consecutive year is recognition of the consolidation this firm has achieved over its five years of existence. Besides being a nomination for an award, it is, above all, a great responsibility and it is also represents international recognition for this impressive firm and all the professionals who work here.

Miguel Spínola, the partner who heads the PLMJ Mozambique Desk, believes that “our continuing presence in these nominations, which is even greater this year, is clear international recognition of the extraordinary progress and quality of work that has been done in PLMJ’s internationalisation project, through PLMJ International Legal Network and its members”.

For Bruno Xavier de Pina, the partner who heads the PLMJ Angola Desk, "this greater number of nominations is further recognition of PLMJ's unshakeable determination and great merit in building and growing this enormous international project".
