He is also actively involved in the coordination of Miranda’s operation in Timor-Leste, where he was the firm’s representative between 2008 and 2009.

According to Diogo Xavier da Cunha, managing partner of Miranda, “We are very pleased to see Lília Tomé de Azevedo and Renato Guerra de Almeida join our group of partners. Both lawyers have been with us for many years and are today a reference in their respective practice areas. They embody the culture and values of the firm in a remarkable way.
