Portugal: PLMJ Strengthens Its Arbitration Team With The Arrival Of Rui Soares Pereira

The law firm PLMJ is pleased to announce the arrival of Rui Soares Pereira at PLMJ Arbitration. Rui Soares Pereira earned a doctorate in legal sciences from the Faculty of Law of the University of Lisbon, with a dissertation entitled O Nexo de Causalidade na Responsabilidade Delitual; Fundamento e Limites do Juízo de Condicionalidade (The causal connection in tortious liability; basis and limits of the judgement of conditionality). He is a specialist in matters of civil liability and evidence. Soares Pereira lectures at the Faculty of Law of the University of Lisbon and the author of scientific works on civil liability, evidence, criminal procedural law and litigation. Over recent years, he has worked as a consultant to a number of leading law firms and he has also held the positions of adviser in the office of the Secretary of State of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers and of the Minister of the Presidency and Parliamentary Affairs in the 19th Constitutional Government. According to José Miguel Júdice, the partner who heads PLMJ Arbitration, "we are very pleased with Rui Soares Pereira's decision to join the PLMJ Arbitration team. His track record and know-how in the areas of arbitration, administrative law, procedural law and litigation in general will be a great benefit, particularly because of his multiple specialisations in areas of increasing importance in Portuguese and, above all, international arbitration cases." PLMJ Arbitration currently has more than 20 lawyers including eight partners, of five different nationalities, and PLMJ is the only Portuguese law firm with an arbitration team that is independent from the litigation team. Together, these lawyers have unparalleled experience in representing clients in arbitrations in five languages (Portuguese, English, Spanish, French and German) in a number of countries, and this truly international practice has allowed PLMJ to be considered one of the world's 100 best law firms for arbitration by the well-respected Global Arbitration Review. PLMJ is also the first Portuguese firm to have made the GAR top 100. The content of this article is intended to provide a general guide to the subject matter.
