DLA Piper Africa, Mozambique (SAL & Caldeira Advogados, Lda.) offers expert legal knowledge in key practice areas and works actively on legal reform in Mozambique. Firm’s major clients include most of leading petroleum and mining companies, foreign investors, international banks, many diplomatic missions and international NGOs.

The firm is ranked by Chambers Global Top Ranked, and Legal 500 EMEA Top Tier, IFLR 1000 Financial & corporate and Project Development as Tier 1 firm.

SAL & Caldeira is a member of DLA Piper Africa, an alliance of legal practices operating across Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the United States of America.

Our firm resulted from the merger of two law firms, SAL Consultoria e Investimentos, Lda (1999) and JCA - José Caldeira Associados, Lda (2002). After the merger, the Company was called SAL & Caldeira Advogados e Consultores, Lda (2006). In 2010, due to Mozambique Bar Association requirements another company formed only by lawyers was incorporated and named SAL & Caldeira Advogados, Lda. We are organised into seven Practice Groups (“PG’s”) namely: Commercial, Regulatory & Public Institutions; Finance, Banking & Insurance; Immigration & NGOs; Labour; Litigation & Dispute Resolution; Projects, Energy & Infrastructure and Tax. Each PG has a Coordinator/Head of Practice, who normally is a Partner or a Manager. In each PG there are senior consultants, consultants, and junior consultants. We are supported by our administrative staff among whom we have sworn translators.

We are a medium-sized company with a total of 74 employees (including 2 interns), of whom 32 are lawyers admitted to the Bar.
