When MdME was established 12 years ago, we set out to emulate the standards of international firms and the basis for our growth from 2 lawyers to a full service law firm with +25 fee earners was precisely the quality of our legal services.

Since then we have been involved in some of the largest and most complex transactions, financings and disputes in Macau, representing local and international corporations and individuals.

Also, the Morais Leitão Legal Circle, Lex Mundi and the opening of our office in Hong Kong, are all significant steps to achieve our mission to become a truly international firm.


“Through our global presence, we strengthen the commitment to the client that characterises us, privileging the cross-practice work and transversing the various sectors and jurisdictions” – Nuno Galvão Teles, Managing partner at Morais Leitão.

"Presenting strong teams in both jurisdictions in multiple sectors, we work together on the most varied projects, so that the client always feels a stable and committed service" – Catarina Levy Osório, Managing partner at ALC Advogados

"Morais Leitão Legal Circle network provides global service in all areas of law. We are in permanent contact, guaranteeing the sharing of experience and knowledge." – Fabrícia de Almeida Henriques, Managing partner at HRA Advogados

Our Values

We promote a culture of integrity through which we encourage all professionals to interact with others with honesty and integrity, always with respect for different opinions and diversity.

The firm has a policy of full transparency regarding the way it operates and how it is regulated.

We continuously promote and invest in cultural diversity, with a special focus on developing connections with the Chinese culture and society and with an increasing globalized world.

Our clients are the main focus of our business and our practice. Serving them as trusted advisors has been and will continue to be essential part of our development as a firm.

We constantly strive to provide clients with the highest quality services, in a responsive, practical and, above all, in an innovative and creative way. Having an original approach is the foundation of our success.

To be recognized as a truly international firm is a key mission to the firm. The opening of our Hong Kong office, the Morais Leitão Legal Circle and the Lex Mundi network are the essential components to successfully pursue this mission.
