An additional six lawyers are also making the move to Miranda from Gouveia Pereira & Associados, they are: senior associate Pedro Rodrigues, associates Catarina Campelo and Sara Pires Correia, junior associates Sara Carpinteiro and Roberta Almeida, and trainee lawyer Sérgio Fagundes Conceição.

Commenting on the hires, Miranda managing partner Diogo Xavier da Cunha, said: “The synergies with the Miranda and Miranda Alliance project in Portugal and Cape Verde are so evident, to the point that we are already witnessing immediate results from this integration. With this step, we greatly reinforce our growing practice in the real estate and tourism sector, which we defined as a clear bet in Portugal, and consolidated the coverage of Miranda Alliance in Cape Verde, with an effective presence in four islands: Santiago (Praia), Sal, Boavista and São Vicente.”
