To work at VdA is to be part of an extraordinary journey made by a growing number of professionals, who have taken an active part in the making of our country’s economic history. We are proud of the road we have travelled based on hard work and strong convictions, where our clients and the team have always been more important than each one of us. João Vieira de Almeida, Managing Partner

Ethics and Diligence

Since 1976, when Vasco Vieira de Almeida first founded a small law office, up to the present day, our founding partner’s unbending ethics and high professional standards are lived on a daily basis by all of VdA’s more than 310 staff members. We are proud of the leading position we have reached in the field of legal advising services in Portugal with the support of our team, which is made up of some of the best specialists in each area of business.

Tradition and Innovation 

Professionalism and diligence underpin the tradition of the name we carry. But VdA’s forward-thinking approach has meant that innovation has always been a stepping stone for our growth, since the firm’s earliest beginnings. So much so that we have led some of the most pioneering transactions to have taken place over the last decades in the financial and infrastructural sectors, among others.

We foster dialogue between generations and promote the discussion of different viewpoints. At VdA, senior partners and junior associates, from some of the best national and international universities, actively collaborate in developing creative solutions for complex legal issues.
