Abreu Advogados obtained a second nomination for one of the most important international innovation awards in the sector: the Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Europe 2021.

Abreu Advogados had already been nominated for these important international awards in the category of “Social justice and the Rule of Law” with the project developed in partnership with the blog “Dyslexia Day by Day“, which has been contributing to an inclusive education by clarifying the main legal doubts of parents in the school supervision of dyslexic children.

Facing an unexplored reality, Abreu Advogados team combined its experience in regulation, tax and information technology in one of the most important topics in the Fintech world, to present a solution that implied rethinking the original service and business model.

Duarte and Sofia Lopes Agostinho.
