VdA maintains its position as leading tax practice in Portugal, according to Tax Directors Handbook 2015.

The Tax Directors Handbook 2015, a specialized publication in tax, nominates once again VdA as one of the leading Portuguese law firms in tax. This nomination results from the increase of work volume and number of clients in both domestic and foreign important transactions.

Alongside the nomination of "Leading Tax Law Firm" in Portugal, lawyers Tiago Marreiros Moreira, Conceição Gamito, Joaquim Pedro Lampreia, Rita Magalhães, Ricardo Seabra Moura and Francisco Cabral Matos are also recommended.

Vieira de Almeida & Associados has broadened its client base, attracting new instructions from clients such as GDF Suez, McKinsey International, VAT Resource and Caterpillar. Tiago Marreiros Moreira advised José de Mello Investimentos on the tax aspects of its takeover bid for Brisa. 'Internationally focused', Francisco Cabral Matos has 'strong knowledge of the markets, legislation and fiscal matters'. Managing associates Joaquim Pedro Lampreia and Conceição Gamito and senior associates Ricardo Seabra Moura and Rita Magalhães are also recommended.
