Boutique firm CCSL Advogados has recruited Hugo Baptista Falcão as partner from Telles Advogados to head the litigation practice.
Baptista specializes in corporate, civil, and criminal litigation. Before joining CCSL, he was a senior associate at Telles Advogados for over 12 years and was also a foreign associate at Sunil Tacker & Associates’ office in Dubai.
"Hugo's integration is part of the firm's strategy of sustained growth and investment in an area of practice that we thought should be developed, which ended up coinciding with a change in the economic climate that predicts an increased need to respond in these areas," says managing partner José Calejo Guerra.
For Hugo Baptista Falcão, who joins partners José Calejo Guerra, João de LemosPortugal, Mafalda Almeida Carvalho and João Diogo Stoffel, "joining CCSL means being part of a project that I consider to be innovative and of quality, with lawyers of the new generation, with whose personal values and ways of being in law I identify and with whom I will work with great enthusiasm. I'm very happy to be part of a project that, although recent, has assumed its relevance in business advocacy".
With the entry of the new partner, CCSL Advogados now has a team of eleven lawyers.
