ELA Expands Into Macau

Addition Ensures Global Coverage for Hospitality and Gaming Industries

The Employment Law Alliance (ELA), the world’s largest network of labor, employment and immigration lawyers, has added MdME as its member firm for Macau.

“Having a presence in Macau is critical to our objective of providing gaming and hospitality companies along with other important business sectors with first class legal services around the globe. As the world's largest gaming market, we felt it was imperative to have a go-to law firm based in Macao who can assist our clients with all of their labor, employment and immigration law needs," said Stephen J. Hirschfeld, CEO of the ELA. “From the moment I first met with the folks at MdME, I knew they would be the perfect for us. Their lawyers are incredibly smart, creative and innovative, and they have vast experience working with sophisticated multi-national companies."

MdME is a Macau-based 17 attorney firm serving clients from diverse sectors – such as hospitality and gaming, banking, insurance, finance, real estate, energy, construction, infrastructure, retail, pharmaceuticals and telecommunications – across its 10 practice areas. In addition to Macau, the firm maintains associated offices in Angola, Portugal and Mozambique. The firm prides itself on responsiveness and efficiency and, since its inception, has been involved in some of the largest Macau projects, developments and transactions.

“The Employment Law Alliance has developed a global reputation as the premier management-side labor and employment law firm network,” said Rui Pinto Proença, partner at MdME. “Providing our clients access to global resources is critical. In turn, we welcome the opportunity to offer a seamless, high level of service to clients of our fellow member firms.”

MdME’s Employment & Immigration practice is headed by Isolda Brasil, who has been practicing in Macau for some years and has substantial experience in the field.
