Carlos Pinto

Thank you very much for clicking on my profile. My name is Carlos Pinto and I have over 20 years of experience practicing law in Angola, both in in-house counsel positions and through my Luanda-based law firm, P&P Advogados. I served as in-housel legal counsel for one of the largest international oil companies with a market leading presence in Angola where I gained experience in the various facets of the oil & gas industry, contract models and the management of complex projects. Afterwards, I headed the legal department of the Angolan Ministry of Finance which fostered my interest in taxation and fiscal policy. My exposure to the corporate world was expanded while I served as director (with the legal portfolio) of the national oil company of Angola. At my firm, P&P Advogados, I mostly advise international and domestic corporate clients in corporate, commercial, private investment, tax and other areas. 

I believe that a strong academic background goes a long way to shaping a knowledgeable and proficient lawyer, so I have invested significantly in my legal training. I have a Masters degree in Commercial Law from the Coimbra Law School in Portugal and the Agostinho Neto University in Angola. I am also completing my Ph.D. in Law program and preparing my thesis in Oil & Gas law. I have authored several articles and studies on various topics of law.

When he is not in this law office, Carlos can often be found in a tennis court where he can be a fierce competitor but with enough flair and fair play! At a more relaxing level, Carlos loves to do long walks and explore hidden spots in nature setting or in historical cities.
