PLMJ recruits former Cuatrecasas co-managing partner

Cuatrecasas Gonçalves Pereira’s former Portugal co-managing partner Diogo Perestrelo has joined PLMJ.


Corporate and M&A specialist Perestrelo’s expertise includes deals in the transport, energy and infrastructure sectors, as well as private equity transactions.

Perestrelo stepped down as Cuatrecasas’ co-managing partner for Portugal in July 2015.

PLMJ managing partner Luís Pais Antunes said: “Diogo Perestrelo’s  track record and impressive know-how in the areas of M&A, venture capital and management of major cases, together with his international experience, will undoubtedly bring enormous added value to both our M&A practice and to our clients.”

Perestrelo said: “I felt it was time for a new challenge and this was the right moment. I am very proud to join PLMJ, a strong brand and a benchmark in the Portuguese legal profession, which has always known how to renew itself over the years.”
