OUR TEAM

All roles at QJF - Sociedade de Advogados, RL are important and valued. Employees are carefully selected and dedicated to its mission.

Trainees are chosen on the basis of very specific criteria, since, by definition, only those who show potential for future integration into the team are accepted.
