Abreu Advogados strengthens its Urban & Regional Planning and Public and Environment practice with the addition of three new members

Abreu Advogados has recently added three new members to its Urban & Regional Planning and Public and Environment, thereby reinforcing its commitment to the experience of its team and the diversity of the services it offers its clients.

The new members are Ana Rodrigues de Almeida, professional partner, Laëtitia Ferro Rodrigues, senior associate, and Tiago Salgueiro Mendes, also senior associate.

“These integrations demonstrate Abreu Advogados’ investment and commitment to strengthening its Public Law and Environment practice area, where we have already distinguished ourselves very positively for a long time, but particularly in the areas of Urban & Regional Planning, where we are looking for internal and external growth opportunities. Ana, Laëtitia and Tiago, with their experience, come to strengthen these areas and sectors whose growing evolution, as a result of the major property, tourism, industrial and energy investment projects that are expected for Portugal, require professionals and teams capable of responding quickly to any requests,” says Inês Sequeira Mendes, Managing Partner of Abreu Advogados.

“Abreu Advogados is one of the law firms with the greatest growth potential in Portugal, with a clear commitment to innovation and sustainability, values with which we completely identify. It is with enthusiasm that we embrace this project, knowing that Abreu’s position in the market and its multidisciplinary team will be key factors in being able to provide the best possible service to our clients and embrace new valuable projects. We want to learn from the Public Law and Environment team, made up of experienced lawyers with a wealth of knowledge in developing innovative legal solutions. We will also do our best to help Abreu Advogados further consolidate its Urban Planning and Territorial Planning practice, strengthening relationships with current and potential clients,” says Ana Rodrigues de Almeida, professional partner at Abreu Advogados.
