Frederico Gonçalves Pereira, partner responsible for Litigation and Labour Law at VdA, spoke to the Jornal de Negócios about the crisis in the national market, making particular reference to the increase in activity in the area of Labour Law.

He made the comment that 'requests for support with corporate restructuring processes have in the past twelve months started to become more numerous'. The consequence of this: 'the discontinuation of Labour contracts has increased in the last year and even more sharply in the last six months'.
