Foreign law firms push into East Timor's legal practice market

ETLJB 14/03/2014 - According to a report in The Lawyer on 10 March 2014, a leading Portuguese law firm, Vieira de Almeida, is to open chambers in East Timor bringing foreign competition into the country's market for legal services. The launch is expected to occur at the end of this month.

Foreign law firms can only operate in East Timor in partnership with local lawyers but East Timorese lawyers have previously expressed protest at foreign lawyers operating in East Timor.

The Lawyer reports that the firm's stated targets are telecoms, infrastructure and oil work. Source: The Lawyer. Edited by Warren L. Wright
