pjimage 2021 09 14T113403.774Feedzai, the Portuguese startup specialising in artificial intelligence to prevent and detect payment fraud at financial institutions, has hired Patrícia Marques Ferreira (pictured) as its new general counsel. In March 2021, the company announced a Series D investment round of $200 million led by KKR, as previously reported by Iberian Lawyer, which raised its valuation well above one billion dollars, and became the fourth Portuguese unicorn. Marques Ferreira has joined from OutSystems, one of the other three Portuguese unicorns, where she was assitant general counsel.

In a statement Feedzai’s new gc said: “After four awesome years at OutSystems, it’s time to change scenarios. No words can express how much I enjoyed my work, how much I learned at OutSystems, how much I am proud of what we collectively achieved. I am super happy to announce that today I joined Feedzai, a spectacular Portuguese Tech company that is helping to change the world for the better, by offering solutions to help companies fight fraud and money laundering.”

Patrícia Marques Ferreira started her career as a trainee at PLMJ. After six years at the firm she joined the inhouse legal team at Portugália Airlines, where she was head of Legal for ten years. Prior to joining Feedzai, Marques Ferreira was assistant general counsel at OutSystems.
