António Frutuoso de Melo e Associados:

AFMA originated from a project of independence and freedom of thought.

This is the culture that endures and that we intend to assure. In AFMA we continue to believe that the upside of law practice lies in the personalized expression of each of our lawyers. This has been, in fact, the key factor in the relationship with our clients at these challenging times.

We are proud of our route and we intend to keep the reasons and spirits for doing so.
