News Focus

During the months of greatest impact of the pandemic in the Iberian Peninsula, law firms generally adopted a low profile focused more on solidarity actions and on supporting with the analysis of extraordinary legislative rules than on advertising their classifications in rankings or awards of the sector. Once the "new normality" has begun, we asked three experts, from Spain and Portugal, if activity has also recovered in this sense

New normal: redifining workspaces

With the back to normal, even though teleworking will continue for some time, the return to workspaces has been progressively resumed. These offices have to be previously adapted to the new demands; safety distance between workstations, redesigning of common areas, etc. All this without losing sight of other factors such as the use of natural resources, aesthetics or adaptation to digital environments
Despite the unusual nature of this year, Iberian Lawyer did not want to fail to recognise, at least from these pages, the important work carried out by top women lawyers in the Iberian Peninsula, whether from law firms, as companies ́ in-house staff or, for the first time, from relevant associations or organisations. Our list presents, in this 2020 edition, 60 women from Spain and Portugal whose work inspires others while promoting the role of women in the legal sector and in our society in general. This year, moreover, we are exceptionally increasing the number to 60. Here is our special tribute to them, InspiraLAw

There is something about Portugal

As a foreign investor in the Portuguese Real Estate market, Tariq El-Asad (pictured) has seen the market change over the years. The founder of Tamea International has been in the country for six years and has no plans of leaving since the business has been growing exponentially and reaching both north (Porto) and south (Algarve). With the pandemic of COVID-19, there was the need to adjust the work, but the interest in the country did not go away, and it is back on track with investors from all over the world. As things start to follow into a new normal, Tariq is optimistic about the future and has new areas of investment in the horizon.

Law firms’ right hand lawyers

The new normality is presented as a path full of uncertainty and emptiness that can only be illuminated by the voice of the most experienced. For this reason, Iberian Lawyer wanted to ask those who advise firms at the highest strategic level in their different specialities what role they are playing at the present time and if, indeed, this is as crucial as we suppose. Four of counsel from different firms tell us about their experience

This 29-year-old young lawyer, specialized in Privacy and New Technologies Law, combines his business side with his work as a lawyer in the legal boutique Metricson

Despite the hard blow that COVID-19 has dealt to the economy in general, the year-end closing has not been as negative as might be thought for most of the large firms in Spain. Some of them, with a high degree of specialization, have even come out stronger.
