“When pharmaceutical companies are faced with make-or-break clashes and negotiations, they turn to VdA; for decades it has taken lead roles in a huge share of life sciences matters in Portugal and is “a reference in the area”. António de Magalhães Cardoso is the top name on the fight card. With his cultivated knowledge and practical seasoning, he ticks all the boxes for cutting-edge innovators. Also highly recommended is Sara Nazaré, an “extraordinarily good lawyer who is straight-talking and fair in negotiations. Already well-known, she is on her way to becoming one of the biggest names in the practice.” She has been working extensively with Bristol-Myers Squibb on enforcement, arbitration and licensing matters”.
