Silvino Domingos, who has vast experience in corporate law and insurance, and his team – Justina Samuel, Cláudia Vilengalenga, Cássia Silva and Gilberto Manuel – joined LBR in January.
CMS strengthened its Africa practice in 2019 with the integration of a multidisciplinary team of senior lawyers, led by Alberto Galhardo Simões, but is now consolidating its focus on the Angolan market.
"In 2019 we defined a clear growth strategy for Lusophone Africa with the integration of Alberto Galhardo Simões and his team. Now, together with our local partner in Angola, LBR, led by Luís Borba Rodrigues, we are strengthening that strategy with the integration of Silvino Domingos and his team. This is about reinforcing our presence in a market that is extremely important for our economy and for our entrepreneurs," said José Luís Arnaut, Managing Partner of CMS Portugal and member of the CMS Executive Committee.
Silvino Domingos commented, "It is with great satisfaction and anticipation that we join one of the largest legal organisations in the world, with more than 80 offices in 45 countries and more than 5000 lawyers worldwide. It allows us, in an unparalleled way, to offer a deep understanding of the local market with a global perspective.”
