According to Ana Ferreira Neves, “joining Telles was an irrefutable challenge. It is an highly regarded law firm with a very strong identity and which has grown considerably over the last few years. With the know-how I have acquired so far, I will seek to contribute to the Telles’ consolidation as one of the leading firms in the Digital, Privacy and Cybersecurity area. It is with great enthusiasm and motivation that I face this new milestone on my professional life in a law firm that, without losing sight of the current context of permanent change in the practice of the profession, has managed to preserve its values of integrity, knowledge sharing, collaboration between teams, innovation and a solid culture forged over time. The sharing of these essential values was decisive for my choice. I thank all my colleagues and other professionals at Telles for their continuous support, which has enabled me to feel completely integrated from the first day.”
