PUBLIC & ADMINISTRATIVE LAW

The public law practice brings together the areas of administrative and constitutional law, with a particular focus on public procurement, administrative litigation, the environment and town planning.

The lawyers of the public law practice have been involved in all the major infrastructure projects that have taken place in Portugal, particularly public works projects and pubic private partnerships, and they have acquired extensive knowledge of areas as diverse as the road, port, airport, rail, hospital and energy sectors.

These public law specialists also handle complex administrative litigation cases on a daily basis including a range of matters related to the day-to-day activities of local authorities.

The public law team, coordinated by Partner Pedro Melo, also stands out because of the excellent academic profiles of the members of this team and because it is one of the largest teams in the market dedicated exclusively to this area.

Finally, the close working relationship between the lawyers of the public law practice and their colleagues in PLMJ International Legal Network, in particular, the teams of lawyers at GLA (in Angola) and GLM (in Mozambique), is a further important asset of this practice.
