The Portuguese legal market has seen its second merger this month, with Lisbon's Sérvulo Correia & Associados announcing a link with Ferreira Pinto & Associados.
From January 2008 the two firms will come together as Sérvulo. The firm will handle public law and corporate work and boast around 70 lawyers. Rui Medeiros and Fernando Ferreira Pinto, managing partners of Sérvulo Correia and Ferreira Pinto respectively, will become co-managing partners.
"The firm will have a strong international perspective, namely in Iberian and Anglo-Saxon markets," Medeiros said. "That will be reinforced with the expertise of two leading teams in their practice areas."
Last week Abreu Advogados finalised its merger with three smaller firms, Pacsa, Lusojurist and Chastre & Associados, gaining 50 lawyers.
