Fernando Antas da Cunha, managing partner, said: “We are particularly excited about these integrations. We recognise great competence in these four lawyers and we are certain that their contribution will be of great relevance to the office.” He adds: “The Tax, Corporate, Commercial and Real Estate areas have registered a remarkable growth in recent times. The knowledge and experience that Carolina, Tatiana, Andreia and João bring with them will certainly help us, in their respective areas, to provide an even more complete and integrated service to our clients.”
Regarding the creation of the first desk of the office, Fernando Antas da Cunha said: “The increase in French investment in Portugal, the advantages associated with the status of non-habitual resident and the number of French people who increasingly choose Portugal as their location of permanent residence, triggered the internal need to provide our French-speaking customers with a differentiated service, adapted to their needs and expectations”. He concludes: “Tatiana will be responsible for coordinating a multidisciplinary team, made up of lawyers with a strong command of the French language and culture, as well as recognised experience in a wide range of activity sectors. I am sure that this model will be appreciated by our customers.”
