PLMJ strengthens Dispute Resolution team
Ricardo Silva Pereira has joined PLMJ’s Dispute Resolution practice as a senior counsel. The lawyer joins the firm from Linklaters and has 15 years of experience. During this time, his principal focus has been the area of dispute resolution where he has specialised in restructuring and insolvency, and arbitration. His specialisation in these matters was consolidated by completing the Insolvency Course at the Faculty of Law of the University of Coimbra (2014) and the University Extension Course in Arbitration at the Faculty of Law of the Nova University (2015), among others. He has also published articles and participated as a speaker in conferences on restructuring and insolvency.
PLMJ’s new senior counsel is a member of the Portuguese Arbitration Association (APA) and the Portuguese Insolvency and Recovery Association (APDIR) where he is also Chair of the Board of the General Meeting.
Joaquim Sherman de Macedo, PLMJ partner and co-head of the firm’s Dispute Resolution practice said: “We are very pleased with Ricardo’s arrival at PLMJ and as a member of our Dispute Resolution team in particular. Ricardo is a leader in his field and is going to be a precious help at a time when we are seeing a very notable increase in the areas where he has the most experience, especially in restructuring and arbitration.”
