AdCE confirms new partner
Antas da Cunha Ecija has confirmed the promotion of Ana Bastos to the partnership
Antas da Cunha Ecija has just announced the reinforcement of its partnership, with the promotion of Ana Bastos (pictured). The lawyer, who joined the firm in 2018, is one of the “faces” of AdCE, in the north of the country. She is the coordinator of the TMT / Privacy and Cybersecurity areas.
Fernando Antas da Cunha, managing partner of Antas da Cunha Ecija said: “This promotion is the fair recognition of the exceptional work that has been developed by Ana, on behalf of our clients, since she joined the firm and, particularly, by the commitment that she has shown over the last two and a half years to place our Porto office on the ‘radar’ of the northern business fabric.”
Antas da Cunha concluded by saying: “Ana, in addition to bringing together excellent human qualities, is an unavoidable reference in her area of activity, which is in turn a core area of our activity. In this sense, this promotion, in addition to being natural and entirely deserved, will certainly prove to be a great asset for the firm.”
Ana Bastos holds a degree in Law from the Faculty of Law of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa and a degree in Digital Marketing from the Apthus Academy. Before joining the firm in 2018, Bastos worked at the Impacting Group, composed of five technology and digital marketing companies (Adclick, Beeleads, EmailBidding, SMARKIO and Impacting Digital) where she was head of Legal department and DPO. Her professional career also stands out for her time at Deloitte, where she worked as a Tax consultant.
Bastos has 18 years of experience in the areas of TMT/Privacy and Cybersecurity. In 2021, she was distinguished within “Iberian Lawyer IP & TMT Awards” as “Lawyer of the Year” in the “Media” category. At the same ceremony, Antas da Cunha Ecija & Associados won the “Law Firm of the Year” award in the “Information Technology” and “Privacy” categories.
With this appointment, the firm led by Fernando Antas da Cunha now has a team made up of 11 partners and 64 lawyers.
