In announcing Miranda as the Lusophone Africa Law Firm of the Year 2023, the Judges noted:
« Miranda retains its status as the go-to law firm for matters in Lusophone Africa, and is of particular note for its work in Angola and Mozambique. In both countries it is frequently mandated on matters in the mining and petrochemicals sectors – a specific example being its advice to Azura Power on the acquisition of a stake in a gas-fired power project for USD145 million. The firm maintains a substantial team in Lisbon whose combined experience assisting with Africa-related transactions spans several decades. Miranda is additionally noteworthy for its co-ordination of the Miranda Alliance network of independent law firms, through which it is able to offer on-the-ground resources across Lusophone Africa. Many of the network’s members maintain top-tier rankings in their own right. Client feedback contains high praise for the team’s comprehensive advice, efficiency and understanding of commercial priorities. »
