Building Tomorrow with PLMJ


PLMJ is one of the most merit-based organisations I know. The career path is absolutely clear and predictable for all lawyers. This is the one aspect of how PLMJ works that I’m most excited about, because it provides motivation and structure that bring success to the firm. This is a true democracy based on the principle of 'one person, one vote', and the way the firm is managed is perfectly transparent.  I think this makes us unique.

I remember the first day I walked through the doors of PLMJ. The interview. And walking out feeling “this is the one!”, the place I want to work. They say what you never forget about people is the way they make you feel. Ten years have passed since that interview and I have had other experiences, in an area different to the one I thought I would work at PLMJ. Now, my colleagues and our clients make me feel like this is where I belong.

Besides being one of the top firms in Portugal and in the other countries where it’s present, it is simply the place where I grow and learn every day, as a professional and as a person. PLMJ has great lawyers and great support staff. This makes it both a friendly and a productive place to come and work every day. It’s really rewarding from a professional and a personal point of view.

PLMJ has changed a lot since I joined the firm in 1996. But we have always known how to keep our pioneering spirit and ability to adapt while preserving our most distinctive characteristic: our diversity and the quality of our personal relationships. New generations at PLMJ will find a deep-rooted culture in which they can flourish in their careers with great personal and intellectual satisfaction.

Focus on training

Personal and professional development

Our training programmes have long been one of PLMJ’s distinguishing marks.

Besides the career plan, PLMJ's lawyers and staff benefit from a training plan which runs throughout their career and is adapted to each stage of that career. In addition to the technical and legal training that enables knowledge to be constantly updated, PLMJ invests heavily in training in relational skills and personal development.

The training plans are tailored to each position, in the case of the legal team, and to the position held in the case of the management team. Each year, the training plan is enriched with new initiatives based on the needs identified and this modular approach means that each employee can address their more specific needs in line with the feedback received throughout the year.

Our commitment to expanding knowledge is applied to all our people from day one. For this reason, in addition to the induction training, we offer a comprehensive annual programme that includes language training, and legal, technical and behavioural training.
