Débora Melo Fernandes has been invited to join the partnership at Gama Glória. She officially became a partner at the start of 2023. The lawyer joined the firm from Sérvulo in 2020 and her practice is dedicated to the areas of Public Law and Regulation. She has more than fifteen years of experience, having previously worked at Morais Leitão, and is focused on regulated sectors, such as mobility, energy and electronic communications.

Fernandes teaches in specialised courses and is frequently invited as a speaker to conferences in her areas of expertise. As well as being the author of several scientific articles, she is an ambassador for “Women in ESG Portugal.”

André Júdice Glória, managing partner of Gama Glória, said that the promotion of Débora Melo Fernandes to partner, “represents another significant step in the growth of this firm and is the recognition of Débora’s great merit and personal qualities.”

Débora Melo Fernandes said: “I accepted this challenge with great satisfaction. Gama Glória is an exciting project, which has taken an extremely interesting path, with a portfolio of clients in sectors deeply impacted by change and with three partners whom it has been a great pleasure to work with. We will continue to grow and it is with satisfaction that I can contribute more actively to this growth.”
