MDR Advogados is formed by lawyers with relevant experience in several practice areas. The firm is particularly experienced in business law practice, having assisted national and international clients in important and innovative projects in Mozambique. The office is a reference both to multinationals and law firms without a local office.

The firm’s head office is in Maputo. However, as members of an international network of associations, the firm has a team of lawyers available in different jurisdictions across the Portuguese - speaking countries. While working in close connection with the member firms of the Morais Leitão Legal Circle, the firm combines local knowledge with the international experience and support of the whole network, which enables the firm to maximise the resources available to its clients, thus providing them the best outcomes to their needs in various jurisdictions.


MDR Advogados is a member of the Morais Leitão Legal Circle, an international alliance of law firms created by Morais Leitão, based upon the sharing of values and common principles of action with the purpose of establishing a platform that delivers high quality legal services to clients around the world. It encompasses a select set of jurisdictions, including Portugal, Angola, Cape Verde and Mozambique.

By its association with Morais Leitão, the firm also benefits from being a member law firm with the associated office in Mozambique of Lex Mundi, the world’s leading network of independent law firms with in-depth experience in over 100 countries worldwide.
