Practice Focus

With our team having a number of years of experience within the legal practice, although relatively new, Lopes Attorneys has advised both local and multinational clients in an array of fields including animal welfare, civil litigation, anti-bribery and corruption, anti-money laundering, data privacy, healthcare, financial services regulation and company law.

Throughout his career, Lopes Attorney’s Managing Director, Rui Lopes, has also conducted arbitrations for various clients and has conducted compliance and anti-bribery and corruption investigations in relation to contraventions of the United States’ Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, the United Kingdom’s Bribery Act and South Africa’s Prevention and Combatting of Corrupt Activities Act. Additionally, he has advised international animal welfare organisations in relation to the environmental legislative framework in South Africa and in challenging the respective Governmental administrative bodies.

Rui’s multilingual capabilities have allowed him to effectively assist clients with an array of queries within Angola and Mozambique.
