pjimage 2021 09 22T124724.709Cuatrecasas Portugal’s new head office, located at Avenida Fontes Pereira de Melo 6, Lisbon, is ready to welcome the firm’s lawyers and staff.

Spanning around 10,000 square meters over ten floors. A spokesperson from the firm said: “The investment in collaborative workspaces is clear in the new facilities. Another prominent feature is the eminently digital environment, with technology offering greater efficiency, security of information and productivity.”

Located in the very center of Lisbon, just 300 meters from the old offices, the new offices also showcase spaces for internal or external events, with a large capacity auditorium, a training room, a multi-functional space, and expansive terraces. There is also a clear focus on promoting work-life balance and wellbeing, which is apparent in the catering area, gym, healthcare services office and car park (which includes spaces for bikes and other green mobility vehicles). The building, built in 1971, has been completely refurbished.

Maria João Ricou, managing partner of Cuatrecasas Portugal said: “Rather than just a physical change, the new head office symbolises, supports and is a catalyst for a change of culture, shifting towards excellence and innovation in the legal services we offer. We now have a more digital and functional space that fosters synergies, promotes cohesion, brings wellbeing to those who work in it and all those who visit it, and offers the company capacity to grow.”

Jorge Badía, CEO of Cuatrecasas, said: “We want Cuatrecasas to remain a leading organisation, a prominent member of the community and a guarantor of the highest quality legal advice, provided by a cohesive team of experts dedicated to creating and maintaining productive and lasting relationships with their clients. We also want all our lawyers to feel valued, to fully charge their team spirit and to re-spark their appetite for continuing to showcase their talent. We are convinced that this is the ideal space to pursue these ambitions.”
