Hong Kong, 12 January 2018: Colin Cohen has welcomed the addition of a new Ally Law member in Portugal as a further example of the global legal services organisation’s commitment to expansion.

Lisbon-based Teixeira de Freitas, Rodrigues e Associados (TFRA) is a full-service law firm that also assists multinational corporations in Brazil, Mozambique and Angola.

“Ally Law has made a great start to 2018 with confirmation that TFRA is now on board. With its excellent reputation in Portugal and extensive connections in South America and Africa, the firm is a valuable addition to our ranks,” said Mr Cohen, Chairman of Ally Law’s Expansion Committee and Senior Partner in Boase Cohen & Collins.

“There were four firms which joined Ally Law last year, in the United States, Finland, Israel and France, and we welcomed the same number in 2016, from Vietnam, Italy, Japan and Canada. Like all member firms, they must adhere to rigorous client service standards with regular evaluation.

“We will continue in our expansion efforts with a specific focus on Asia-Pacific, Africa, Eastern Europe and Latin America. A bigger organisation means more cross-referral business for member firms and gives us a stronger global footprint.”

Boase Cohen & Collins is Hong Kong’s sole representative in Ally Law, which utilises close co-operation between members to help clients overcome their international legal and business challenges. The organisation comprises more than 60 firms in over 40 jurisdictions.
