AMMC (Abalada Matos, Moraes Cardoso e Associados, Sociedade de Advogados, RL) was founded in 2015, as a result of the association of two partners from the now dissolved LCA – Sociedade de Advogados (Abalada Matos, Lorena de Sèves e Associados, Sociedade de Advogados, RL), Isabel Abalada Matos and Isabel Moraes Cardoso, along with three associates from the same firm.

AMMC is a product of the experience of its partners and associates in the several areas of their professional lives, which are an added value for the services provided, including law practice, consulting and counselling, law teaching, contributions within lawmaking policy, performing positions of leadership and consultancy in the Public Administration, and training in a practical context, with a special focus on the several aspects of Public Law.
