SÉRVULO nominates three new partners in the Public, Financial and Litigation departments


At the last General Meeting, Sérvulo & Associados decided to promote, in its areas of expertise, its principal associates, Ana Luisa Guimarães, in Public Law, Verónica Fernández, in Financial Law & Governance and João Carmona Dias, in Litigation. Always focused on the evolution of the career of lawyers based on merit, SÉRVULO thus recognises the path of excellence pursued by these three lawyers over the course of sixteen years of accumulated experience.

Paulo Câmara, Managing Partner of SÉRVULO, emphasises the importance of this promotion in a period in which the Company has had a strong annual growth, above double-digit turnover. "We are very pleased with this new generation of partners, who have affirmed themselves as references in their areas of expertise and from now on undertake an even more relevant role in the growth of the Firm", he concludes.

Ana Luisa Guimarães has joined SÉRVULO in 2008. Her areas of practice focus mainly on public procurement, particularly on concessions and projects, and on the regulation of natural resources, such as water and waste. Ana Luisa Guimarães also excelled in the academic field, holds a Master's degree in Public Law from the Faculty of Law of the Portuguese Catholic University and a postgraduate lecturer promoted by the Faculty of Law of the University of Lisbon in her specialty areas. He is completing an MBA in AESE and is currently a member of the Portuguese Association of European Law (APDE). Previously she worked eight years at the Iberian firm Gonçalves Pereira, Castelo Branco.

Verónica Fernández has joined SÉRVULO in 2011, integrating the Finance and Governance department. Throughout her career, she has accumulated experience in legal advice to companies in the financial sector - banking, capital markets and insurance and in legal advice to credit institutions in financing and debt restructuring operations, as well as in the development of banking products and services. Her training includes post-graduate courses in Consumer Law at the Faculty of Law of the University of Lisbon and in Banking, Stock Exchange and Insurance Law at the Faculty of Law of the University of Coimbra. She previously worked for seven years at Cuatrecasas, Gonçalves Pereira, and before that joined the legal department of the Santander Totta Group.

João Carmona Dias started his career at Ferreira Pinto & Associados, which in 2008 would become part of SÉRVULO. Its multifaceted profile covers the areas of Litigation, Privacy and Data Protection. Within the scope of the latter, it is worth mentioning the prominent role that João Carmona Dias has played as the pivot of the integrated service of assistance to the application of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR Service). He acquired extensive experience in set up, merger, acquisition or restructuring of companies. His training includes post-graduate courses in Contract Law by the Faculty of Law of the Portuguese Catholic University, International Contracts and Securities, the latter two by the Faculty of Law of the University of Lisbon.

With these nominations, the company founded by Professor Sérvulo Correia in 1999 now has 16 partners.
