Sérvulo elects new Executive Committee


SÉRVULO's Board of Directors appointed a new Executive Committee, renewing the mandate of the Managing Partner, Paulo Câmara, now assisted by partners João Saúde and Rita Canas da Silva.

The two-year’s mandate now beginning represents a balance between continuity and generational renewal of SÉRVULO, which intends to focus on the link between regulatory specialisation and transactional work and on dynamizing sectors of activity in which SÉRVULO is already recognised and have experienced exponential growth, such as Energy, ESG, Sports, Healthcare Responsibility, Restructuring, Private Equity, Digital, Infrastructure, Natural Resources and Private Clients.

"Despite the challenging period that the country is going through, I am pleased with the path we have followed and with the firm commitment to our corporate purpose", says SÉRVULO's Managing Partner, Paulo Câmara. "This organizational renewal allows us to prepare the next decades of the firm, opening a place at the top for younger partners, taking advantage of their vision and energy to continue the development of our project, not only in domestic terms, but also at an international level, in which the firm has been firmly focusing on  in recent years".

At SÉRVULO since 2008, João Saúde is the co-ordinating partner of the Litigation and Arbitration and Sports Law areas. He is co-responsible for SÉRVULO's international relations, being the main contact with China, through the Cathay Associates network. He is also co-responsible for the "African Desk" and the lusophone network SÉRVULO LATITUDE⦵, in this context coordinating several international projects and international arbitrations in the PALOPs.

At SÉRVULO since 2015, Rita Canas da Silva is a partner in the Employment department and coordinator of the integrated Liability in Healthcare service. She has a PhD in Labour Law and is a Professor at the Faculty of Law of the Portuguese Catholic University (Lisbon School). She is a guest speaker at conferences and seminars on employment and sports law and has published a large number of works in her area of expertise.
