For the fourth consecutive year VdA is shortlisted for the Financial Times Innovative Lawyers Awards.

Amongst the various categories in which VdA is shortlisted, partner Magda Cocco’s nomination as one of the ten Legal Innovators of the year in Europe, stands out. This is the third time a VdA team member is shortlisted for this category, a rare achievement for any firm in Europe. The preliminary report underlines Magda Cocco’s innovative drive throughout her career, namely regarding her activity abroad in the telecoms area, the pioneering creation of the Privacy and Data Protection practice and the launching of the Aerospace Law practise, the only of its kind at national level and indeed still one of the few in the international market as well.

“We will strive to keep deserving such a prestigious acknowledgment, always bearing in mind our main focus: to deliver the best service to our clients and to our community” said Paulo de Barros Baptista, VdA’s partner in charge of the firm’s innovation project.
