Working at VdA is a challenging opportunity

It means to work with the most reputed legal minds in each practice area. Whether you are a trainee, a partner or a support staff member, working at VdA means working on major domestic and international transactions and projects in a highly demanding yet stimulating environment. It means sharing in all of the team’s successes.

We thrive on team-spirit, sense of humour and a relaxed atmosphere and operate as a meritocracy. Each individual’s path depends solely on his or her contribution to the overall success of the team. People are our most important asset - we strive to ensure that everyone is enthusiastic about coming to work each morning.

We are always keen to find out about people who might be a good fit for the team. We are particularly interested in those who believe in the VdA project and share our values. Integrity, thoroughness, team spirit, willingness to work hard and a good sense of humour are our driving forces.

It all starts here

« If there’s one aspect that sums up VdA’s focus I would say it is the capacity to look for and produce legal solutions that effectively answer the clients’ needs. At VdA we never allow ourselves just to refer to the existing legal frame, we thrive on constantly creating new legal solutions at the forefront of the legal system. »

Paula Gomes Freire
Managing Partner

« Life is a sum of our choices, and I now know that my entry into VdA as a trainee was one of the best decisions I could have made. From day one, I learnt to work to the highest standards. But more importantly, I learnt to become a better person. »
