Firm Overview:

Avillez, Bacar, Duarte & Centeio - Sociedade de Advogados, LdA ("ABCC") is a first-tier law firm in the Mozambican market, which has opted to stay 100% independent. Created in May 2009, as a result of the association of a highly reputable and experienced team of lawyers that left MGA, with more than 20 years of experience in strategic areas of law in Mozambique, ABCC provides efficient and dynamic client-oriented solutions.

ABCC associates technical skills to a commercial perspective, in a dynamic and constructive approach, which grants added value to its clients’ businesses. ABCC’s strong teamwork and, above all, the solid local and international experience of its partners is acknowledged and valued both inside and outside Mozambique.

ABCC, although young, has already received international recognition in IFRL1000 and Legal 500, as Tier 2 for General Business Law/Finance and Tier 3 for Project Development. We are extremely proud to have these recognitions because we are a totally independent firm with its own knowledge and resources.
