FÁTIMA FREITAS & ASSOCIADOS ("FFA") and MIRANDA enjoy an historical association relationship. During the best part of three decades, our joint team has worked together on multiple assignments for international clients related with the Angolan jurisdiction, in virtually all practice areas and industries.

 

FFA is a leading full-service Angolan law firm with offices in Luanda, Cabinda and Lobito. The total staff count is approximately 50 people, of which 36 are fee-earners, making the firm one of the largest in the country. 

 

Over the years, we have built a reputation as one of the pre-eminent and most internationally-oriented Angolan law practices. In 1992 it became the first African member of what would later turn into the Miranda Alliance.

 

Our primary goal is to provide our clients with an exceptional legal service on a cost-effective and responsible basis, in accordance with the highest ethical standards of the legal profession. Our lawyers have extensive and widely-recognized expertise in a significant number of practice areas and industry sectors. All of the firm’s professionals are fluent in English, among other languages, and this has been a key factor in establishing the Miranda Alliance as the preferred legal choice for many of Angola’s most important international investors.

 

The firm is routinely involved in the country’s largest, most complex transactions and projects. Its reputation is particularly noted in the oil & gas industry where the Miranda Alliance advises the major operators, oil field service providers, financiers and other players active in Angola.

 

The firm’s expertise is widely acknowledged by the leading international directories, among them Chambers Global (Band 1), which in 2018 says: 

 

This firm is highly regarded by peers and clients alike for its well-established and dynamic presence in the Angolan market. The firm's association with the Miranda Alliance ensures its international reach. Interviewees highlight the firm's "strong commercial law department that offers knowledgeable and experienced advice" and recommend "its technical grasp of many areas of the law, local expertise, presence and prestige in Angola."  

 

In 2017 Chambers Global said:

 

"This highly experienced firm is widely considered to be at the forefront of the market. The team is acknowledged by market sources as one of the leaders in commercial law, particularly in the oil and gas sector. They go on to further note: "The firm has a solid and traditional presence in the market with skilled and professional lawyers."
