Abreu Advogados has recruited CCA Law partner Martim Menezes.
Menezes, who has joined Abreu Advogados as a partner, had been with CCA Law for more than 25 years.
He specializes in litigation and commercial law, with a particular focus on the telecommunications, media and technology sectors.
The arrival of Menezes means Abreu Advogados now has a total of 32 partners.
Also making the move to Abreu Advogados – which has more than 200 lawyers – are Tiago Leote Cravo, Sara Mendonça and Pedro Tavares Pereira.
Litigation and administrative law specialist Leote Cravo will join as a senior lawyer from Garrigues where he spent around one year as a senior associate, prior to that he was a senior associate at CCA Law.
Mendonça, who specializes in litigation and arbitration, joins Abreu Advogados as an associate from CCA Law, where she spent nearly five years. Meanwhile, Tavares Pereira, who focusses on litigation, commercial and corporate law, also joins from CCA Law.
Abreu Advogados managing partner Duarte de Athayde said: "We have been following Martim's path for many years and we identify with his values and the way he understands advocacy".
Menezes said Abreu Advogados was a firm that has “always stood out in our market for its independence and dynamism, and has been a pioneer in matters such as technology and sustainability, which has enabled exponential growth at the firm. Its brand reflects the values of its partners, with whom I identify and with whom I want to work in order to continue to deliver to our clients excellent legal services that respond to the challenges they face".
