Abel Mesquita - PLMJ

Within: Employment

PLMJ is ‘very close to its clients’ and lawyers are able to ‘simplify questions and think outside the box’. Domestic and international household names instruct the team. Nuno Ferreira Morgado ‘puts himself in the client's shoes’ and ‘gets straight to the point’; he assisted Toshiba with the redundancy of its sales manager in Portugal. The ‘very competent’ Tiago Cortes assisted TAP in negotiating a five-year collective agreement with the Pilots’ Union (SPAC). Abel Mesquita and Oporto-based Manuel Cavaleiro Brandao are the other names to note.
