OADL & Associados– Sociedade de Advogados RL, is the result of a merger of two of São Tomé and Príncipe’s most prestigious law firms, namely, Amado Pereira & Associados and ODL & Associados.

An increasingly demanding and diversified clientele, a desire and need to adapt to changing times, as well as the emergence of increasingly global challenges, have provided the impulse for establishing a law firm in São Tomé and Príncipe capable of forging new paths and providing competent answers to all who seek our services.

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.” – Charles Darwin
