PLMJ is shortlisted for Law Firm of the Year: Iberia and European banking and finance deal of the year, for advising on the sale of Barclays' Portuguese operations to the Spanish bank, Bankinter. The PLMJ team, led by partner Hugo Rosa Ferreira, was responsible for structuring and implementing the legal solution for this operation in Portugal.

This recognition by The Lawyer is the fruit not only of the work done by PLMJ's lawyers in 2016 in advising on the main operations and projects taking place in Portugal, but also of their work on cross-border operations.
