VdA has been recognised with the "Portugal Tax Disputes Firm of the Year" award by the prestigious International Tax Review (ITR) directory, at the 19th edition of the ITR EMEA Awards.

This award recognises the complex and innovative work that VdA has been carrying out in the tax area on a sustainable basis, particularly in the area of tax litigation, where it has achieved historic victories in the Portuguese arbitration and judicial courts, as well as in the Court of Justice of the European Union, where it recently won a victory with significant impact at European level in the famous Allianz-GI Fonds AEVN case (C-545/19), which has made it possible to recover large amounts unduly withheld at source from dividends paid by Portuguese companies to foreign collective investment organisations that invested in them.

The ITR is a respected directory that annually honours leaders and innovators in the tax sector around the world, highlighting companies that stand out for their competence, dedication and significant results in tax litigation.

The ceremony took place on 27 September in London.
