The seven-lawyer practice at Pereira Sáragga Leal Oliveira Martins Júdice & Associados (PLMJ) is recognised by peers as one of the country’s leading practices. The team is led by Who’s Who Legal nominee Ricardo Oliveira, who is assisted by five senior associates and one associate. The firm recently won an important case before the European General Court, representing companies in the fruit and vegetable sector seeking annulment of various regulations. The team is also advising one of the companies involved in a major banking investigation.

The practice continues to provide antitrust counsel to catering company Eurest in the catering cartel, which has been the largest case tried before the newly established specialised Competition Court. Other clients represented by PLMJ at that court include Farminveste, Lactogal and Formato.

In terms of mergers, the firm has been advising Zon Multimedia in the notification to the PCA of a joint venture with Portugal Telecom and Controlinveste. The practice continues to advise various international companies, including Siemens, Nestlé, Unilever, Essilor and Coca-Cola.
