From its Lisbon and Porto offices, Miranda’s Litigation and Arbitration team now comprises of three partners and fifteen lawyers.

Diogo Xavier da Cunha, managing partner at Miranda said: “It is with great satisfaction that we welcome Francisco Colaço to Miranda. This integration is in line with our strategic aim of strengthening the coordinating team of our Litigation and Arbitration practice, which has registered a notable growth, both in terms of volume of work, and the complexity, sectoral and geographical diversity of clients and processes. On the other hand, the integration of a lawyer with Francisco’s qualities, professional recognition and experience, fits perfectly in the movement of strengthening the body of partners that we intend for Miranda, translating in addition to an excellent complement in terms of know-how and experience, to the strengths of our Litigation and Arbitration team, whether domestically or internationally.”

In turn, Francisco Colaço said that: “It is with great enthusiasm that I accept the challenge given to me by Miranda, to contribute with my experience as a lawyer and in the organisation and management of a Litigation department, together with my friend Sofia Martins, to help in the affirmation and implementation, mainly in the domestic market, of Miranda’s Litigation and Arbitration department.”

Sofia Martins said, “Being able to count on a partner and friend with Francisco’s experience and reputation, with the task of coordinating the team that we have been building in the area of ​​Litigation & Arbitration in recent years, is a privilege and a pleasure. I am sure that, together, we will be able to give an even greater projection and quality to this relevant area of ​​practice”.

With this integration, Miranda & Associados now counts on 30 partners.
