Paula Gomes Freire is quoted in an article published by Legal Business, entitled "Out the other side", which describes the situation currently facing the Iberian Peninsula's legal market and sets out prospects for the future in line with recent sector trends.

In order to address evolving client expectations and changes in the business environment, the article highlights the urgent need for Iberian companies to prioritise innovation and technological integration. In this sense, Paula Gomes Freire points out that "Generative AI is a game changer and will force firms to adapt to a service delivery model based on output and value rather than input and time spent".

Finally, Paula Gomes Freire shared an optimistic perspective for the current year, stating that "the M&A sector is expected to perform well in 2024 and we expect strong activity in the infrastructure, energy and environment sectors fuelled by available public funds under the EU Recovery and Resilience Plan".
