Legal Macau Lawyers Alliance

Legal Macau Lawyers is the law firm representing Global Flying Hospitals.  In 2009, this leading firm offered to work in alliance on a Pro-Bono basis, as the Principals identified with the vision of GFH and understood how this vision would add to the diversification of Macau, while providing medical care to those suffering in developing countries.

Since that time, the firm have gone beyond the call-of-duty, in providing their law services, but have acted in negotiator roles with corporate sponsors through to representation roles for GFH.

Global Flying Hospitals is indebted to this leading firm in Macau SAR.
