VdA contributed to the 17th edition of one of the World Bank Group's major annual publications, the "Doing Business 2020" report, in partnership with the local offices integrated in the VdA Legal Partners network. The report is the result of an annual study that measures how legislation promotes or restricts business activity, presenting quantitative indicators on business regulation and property rights protection, comparing 190 economies.

Several lawyers from VdA and VdA Legal Partners contributed to this report: Congo - Mathias Essereke (Cabinet Mathias Essereke Partner); Guinea-Bissau - Fernando Resina da Silva (VdA Partner); Equatorial Guinea - Maria Araújo (VdA Managing Associate); Mozambique - Teresa Empis Falcão (VdA Partner), Guilherme Daniel (GDA Partner), Gonçalo Barros Cardoso (GDA Senior Associate) e Karen Morais Aly (GDA Associate); Sao Tome and Príncipe - Raul Mota Cerveira (VdA Partner); and Timor-Leste - Catarina Pinto Correia (VdA Partner), João Cortez Vaz e Marina Costa Cabral (VdA Associates).
