Andersen reinforces Corporate and M&A area

Andersen has just announced the hiring of Marlene Nogueira to reinforce the corporate/m&a area and coordinate the data protection department at the Porto office.

The new of counsel at Andersen Portugal moves from Cuatrecasas, where she spent 16 years and was a member of the commercial and corporate law and intellectual property, media and information technology departments.

With more than 20 years of experience in providing legal advice to national and international companies, Marlene Nogueira has a post-graduation in company law and advanced training in data protection, which allowed her to develop specific skills in the transactional area, with participation in numerous projects of M&A and real estate operations, in sectors as diverse as tourism, automotive, construction, real estate, health and pharmacy, publishing, industrial, IT, technology and renewable energies, having also led several projects to implement the General Regulation on Data Protection, in public and private entities.

Regarding her integration at Andersen, Marlene Nogueira states that, “It is an honour for me to be able to collaborate in the growth of the corporate and m&a area, in which the company is already a relevant player and, at the same time, contribute to a specialised approach in sector of new technologies and privacy”. And she adds “the challenge of developing an area of ​​activity for the office is enormous, but the motivation is even greater, both for sharing the culture and values ​​of the office, guided by knowledge and innovation, and especially because it is a “return home”, alluding to the time she collaborated with the four partners at the Andersen office in Porto when they were all part of the multinational consultancy PwC.

Regarding this important reinforcement of the team, Teresa Nogueira, co-managing partner of Andersen in Portugal who, together with Luísa Curado, leads the Porto office, explains that “the hiring of Marlene Nogueira is another decisive step in the implementation of the expansion plan of the office, through the enhancement of existing skills, as well as the development of new areas of practice, including the areas of Compliance and ESG, with the main objective of providing global and transversal advice to our clients.”
