What does PLMJ mean to you?
It is a reference and leader in Portugal and increasingly the most international law firm in the Portuguese-speaking world.

What is your "PLMJ story"?
I had the privilege to start my career at PLMJ as part of the project to create a presence in the Mozambican market by developing partnerships with Mozambican lawyers. This process culminated in the creation of GLM but also with the creation of the Mozambique Desk in Lisbon, which works in close cooperation with GLM.

What is daily life like in PLMJ?
No two days are the same. Sometimes I feel like I’m sailing a large boat on a calm sea. Other times I feel like I’m riding a roller-coaster with loop after loop.

What does PLMJ mean to you?
Besides being one of the leading law firms in Portugal and in the other countries in which it has a presence, PLMJ is the place where I grow and learn every day as both a professional and a person. PLMJ has excellent human capital and this provides daily companionship and cooperation with professional colleagues that is hugely enriching both in professional and personal terms.


What is your “PLMJ story”?
In summer 2007 I took part in the PLMJ summer internship programme. This was an excellent experience and so I had no doubts about which law firm I wanted to do my professional training in.
In December 2008 I began my professional training in PLMJ and this training was split into ten-month periods in the following practice areas: corporate / M & A (German Desk team), litigation, capital markets, and banking and finance.
I am now working as an associate in the capital markets and banking and finance practices.


What is daily life like in PLMJ?
Although every day in PLMJ is generally very busy and full of challenges, the environment here also provides us with moments of leisure and interaction with colleagues. Over the last four and a half years I have had the privilege to make great friendships in PLMJ and these have led me to seeing PLMJ as something that goes beyond a mere place of work.
