The Legal Media Group Life Science Awards recognise the leading lawyers, law firms and legal advisers that play an important role in the area of life sciences
Last week, in New York, PLMJ was named Portugal Firm of the Year at the Euromoney Legal Media Group Life Sciences Annual Awards 2015. PLMJ and its health, life sciences and pharmaceutical team, headed by partner Eduardo Nogueira Pinto, were recognised by their peers having done important work in this practice area over the last year, with numerous clients from the pharmaceutical and health sectors. Eduardo Nogueira Pinto was also recognised as a "star" by the publication LMG Life Sciences.
For Eduardo Nogueira Pinto, "this award gives us enormous international recognition and encourages us to keep going at a time of slow economic recovery, working in a sector as highly challenging as health and pharmaceuticals. It is also an incentive to maintain our ambition, but above all to continue with our work, which we do with a permanent eye on the needs of our clients, and a constant focus on excellence, rigour and innovation."
The winners were chosen on the basis of research carried out through 1000 questionnaires completed by peers in the legal profession for the Life Sciences Europe Guide, which was published in June of this year.
This award once again places PLMJ among the top independent, international firms. It also confirms the excellence of the teams and of the legal advice provided by PLMJ.
