Abreu Advogados reinforces team with eight Associates

Abreu Advogados promoted eight trainee lawyers to associates, after successfully completing the firm’s trainee-ship programme. With this round of promotions, Abreu Advogados continues its policy of betting on the younger generation and on some of the most promising talents of the Portuguese legal practice.

The most recent associates have completed the Abreu Advogados trainee-ship programme over the last two years, where they had the opportunity to work in various practice areas, with the personalised support of the Firm’s teams, in a model designed to develop the skills and qualities of each of them.

The new associates are: Benigno Guterres (Timor-Leste Desk); Cláudia C. Ribeiro da Silva (Employment); Daniel Santos Almeida (Public and Environment); Francisco Mendes Amaral (Corporate and M&A); Francisco Rodeia Gomes (Tax); Francisco de Ornelas Matias (Litigation & Arbitration); Ivone Moreira da Costa (Tax) and Rafael Silva Teopisto (Litigation & Arbitration).

Abreu Advogados recently launched the recruitment campaign “People like you”, an innovative initiative that gives a more human and close perspective of each candidate, where the various moments and initiatives are adjusted to the profile of each one. This perspective is then continued throughout the trainee-ship period, which is now ending for these eight associates.

The Firm reinforces its team in various practice areas with these eight promotions, in line with its strategy of growth and consolidation of its position as one of the leading independent law firms in Portugal.
