VdA’s managing partner, João Vieira de Almeida, won Best Managing Partner in Europe, one of the most prestigious awards for corporate lawyers.

A remarkably strong and inclusive leader, with unique vision and management and innovation capacity, João started with a firm of 16 lawyers in 1996 and made VdA what it is today: a leading law firm, with 300 lawyers and 450 staff in 13 jurisdictions.

In his words, “this award goes beyond personal recognition, it reflects the success of the entire firm, the professionalism and excellence of corporate law practice in Portugal."

The prestigious “The Lawyer European Awards 2019” were awarded yesterday in London.
