João Soares da Silva and Luísa Soares da Silva lead on the majority of equity and debt capital markets transactions, respectively, with key partners including Carlos Osório de Castro and Rui de Oliveira Neves, who are both highly praised by clients in finance and corporate mandates.
"Neves is very pragmatic," says one, "he works hard and always tries to find solutions". Castro for his part is highly rated for his service and legal expertise. "We see Osório de Castro and his team as a [true] partner. He is not only able to propose the best legal solutions [and] alternatives, but he also understands our business in depth and he is always reachable".
