Kennedys merges with Portuguese firm N. Maldonado Sousa & Associados

Kennedys has integrated Portuguese law firm N. Maldonado Sousa & Associados into its Lisbon office.

Nuno Maldonado Sousa, the sole partner of N. Maldonado Sousa & Associados, joins the British firm as a partner along with two associates, Gabriela Rei and Carla Almeida Cruz. The team specialises in contentious and non-contentious advice to businesses related to the areas of corporate and commercial, real estate and construction, employment and life sciences.

Kennedys opened its office in Lisbon in 2011.

Paulo Almeida (pictured), partner and head of Kennedys’ Lisbon office, says: “The breadth and depth of experience that Nuno and his team bring to our Lisbon office complements our existing insurance work. Their arrival also adds additional expertise to our global practices that are relevant to our insurer clients, such as life sciences”.
