VdA lawyer's performance "acknowledged by clients"

Vieira de Almeida & Associados (VdA)'s managing associate has been granted the International Law Office Client Choice Awards 2012 for Capital Markets.
After the recent prize awarded by the NYSE Euronext Lisbon to VdA's Capital Markets area of practice for the most active law firm of the year, further to the recent strengthening of the practice area with José Pedro Fazenda Martins, former CMVM's director, once again the firm's performance is awarded through Hugo Moredo Santos's prize as best lawyer in the area.

Last year it was Pedro Cassiano Santos who was awarded with an ILO Client Choice Award. VdA's partner responsible for the Banking & Finance area of practice was chosen as the best lawyer in the Banking area.

The ILO Client Choice Awards recognise those law firms and partners around the world that stand apart for the excellent client care they provide and the quality of their service. The criteria for the awards focus on an ability to add real value to clients' business above and beyond the other players in the market. Uniquely, law firms and partners can only be nominated for these awards by corporate counsel.

The winners for 2012 were chosen from more than 2,000 individual assessments received worldwide.
