CS’Associados has reinforced their European and Competition area with the lateral move of Gonçalo Machado Borges. The lawyer joins the firm from Morais Leitão and will lead and develop this area of practice.
Gonçalo Machado Borges has more than 20 years of professional activity, spending the last five as a partner, in the European and Competition and TMT areas of Morais Leitão. Machado Borges has extensive experience in providing legal assistance in matters of regulation, competition and litigation, namely in matters of restrictive agreements, abuse of dominant positions and mergers of companies, in the most diverse sectors of activity. Notably he has had direct participation in the most important consolidation operations within the communications sector in Portugal since 2006, as well as the growing importance he has had in the private enforcement of competition rules in several of the main cases already concluded in Portugal.
CS’Associados continues to provide services exclusively in the areas in which it is able to provide legal advice at the highest level, and the integration of Gonçalo was an opportunity to reinforce the firms position in the area. According to Gonçalo Machado Borges, “I am very enthusiastic to face the challenge that was set before me to grow the competition area at CS’Associados, where technical excellence and advocacy are valued, these traits are precisely what I see within myself. I am sure that it will be possible for us explore new approaches, related to accelerated change in economic regulation, contributing to continually strengthen CS’Associados’ European and Competition area.”
