On April 28, 2022, C&C Lawyers and Notaries and international law firm Dentons signed a strategic cooperation agreement.
C&C Lawyers and Dentons have reached a strategic cooperation agreement to promote the development of the future legal regime in the Guangdong-Macao In-Depth Cooperation Zone in Hengqin. “This partnership will combine both legal teams’ strengths through flexible and open cooperation and the exchange of legal services and resources in Zhuhai and Macao, strengthening the principle of “one country, two systems”.” C&C’s Director and General Manager Rui Pedro Cunha said.
Both firms’ collaborative working platform is conveniently located at IFC in the In-Depth Cooperation Zone in Hengqin. Moreover, C&C and Dentons will serve as a bridge between Macao and Portuguese-speaking countries and regions and establish a mutual assistance platform.
Dentons is one of the oldest and largest full-service law firms in Mainland China, with a global legal service network covering the entire country and offices in major cities worldwide. Dentons (Zhuhai) Law Firm was the first law firm to enter Hengqin, incorporated in May 2012. Being one of the world’s leading international law firms, Dentons actively explores diversified legal solutions for constructing the Hengqin-Macao integration.
C&C Lawyers was founded in Macao in 1996 by Mr Rui José da Cunha. It is currently one of the largest law firms in Macao, with partners in mainland China, Hong Kong, Portugal, and other Portuguese-speaking countries, and an established joint law firm in Timor-Leste with Abreu Advogados. In addition to its legal services, C&C Lawyers and Notaries has set up other professional establishments such as a translation centre and a corporate services company. With its dedicated efforts to meeting the needs of legal services in both Western and Eastern cultures and continuing to expand its global operations and business, C&C Lawyers has been repeatedly listed on and awarded by renowned legal guides.
Both firms’ strategic cooperation culminated with a Conference at the Rui Cunha Foundation, where partners from both firms explored the convergence and integration of the legal systems in the Hengqin Cooperation Zone.
