PLMJ is the only Portuguese law firm to have won this award twice, in 2015 and 2012
The law firm PLMJ has once again been shortlisted for the 'Law Firm of the Year: Iberia' award at The Lawyer European Awards 2016, presented by the prestigious London based magazine, The Lawyer. It has already won this award twice, in 2015 and 2012, and this makes PLMJ the only Portuguese law firm to have achieved this distinction on two occasions.
For PLMJ managing partner, Luís Pais Antunes, "PLMJ being nominated once again for 'Law Firm of the Year: Iberia' at The Lawyer European Awards 2016, consolidates the position we had already enjoyed as one of the most recognised law firms on a European level. This international recognition is an incentive to be even more ambitious in the excellence, rigour and innovation of the services we provide to our clients."
"PLMJ must focus increasingly on providing high added value services and on seeking innovative and efficient solutions for its clients and for their businesses. To achieve this, we must optimise structures, invest in specialisation and document management, and ensure across-the-board training for all our human capital. The great challenge that faces us is to keep on increasing efficiency in our internal organisation and in providing high quality services to our clients. This is PLMJ's focus for the coming years", emphasises PLMJ's managing partner.
