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 2019 says:

 

The firm enjoys an excellent reputation for its work in the oil and gas industry. Clients also note its expertise on tax and labour law matters, in addition to commending the group's ability to advise on Angolan legislation. Its work broadens to attain an international scope due to the firm's association with the Miranda Alliance. Interviewees say the firm has "a solid base in the energy sector," while others appreciate that the group is "quick in giving answers to requests" and "knowledgeable in the banking sector."
 

In 2018 Chambers Global said:

 

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."
