The promotion of João Amaral (pictured left), a lawyer who has been with us for 15 years with an unbeatable dedication to the firm’s international expansion project, is a clear example of our policy. Likewise, the integration of Nuno Gouveia (pictured centre) and Pedro Melo (pictured right) in the group of Miranda equity partners translates a strong investment in the future of the firm, in addition to, of course, a deserved recognition for the way they have contributed to the success, prestige and cohesion of the firm.”
