Our litigation, international arbitration and dispute resolution law practice has remarkable evidence of top tier law firm practices and has delivered successful results in multi billion dollar disputes in domestic litigation cases and acting as counsel in international arbitration.
A strong connection with other practice areas and a special endeavor through the waters of Oil and Gas, has given us the ability to list some of our lawyers in international directories among the world’s best practitioners.
Our firm provides full service legal support in nine Portuguese speaking countries, Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, São Tomé and Príncipe and East Timor (Timor Leste), and and have dealt with many of the problems generated by highly complex transactions, industries and activities. We take particular pride of having counsels that previously represented Oil & Gas giants in disputes against governments in matters that ranged from production sharing agreements, tax revenue disputes allocation of costs. Further to that, our network of connections and friendly firms is ideally placed to handle the growing number of cross-border disputes. It is this ability to lead disputes in these countries and to coordinate cross-border proceedings that persuades many of our clients and leads them to trust us.
Our firm is also proud of facing clients’ needs as they are in fact and not just following the natural course of a case. We respect that sometimes the best solution is the most cost effective and do not hold back from clients who desire alternative dispute resolution roads.
