Our
people

Voltar

It is very clear to us that providing the best service to our clients depends on our ability to have really motivated and happy teams.

We recognise the challenges of the legal profession and want to ensure that our people are able to provide the best legal advice in Portugal without compromising their personal lives.

Diversity and inclusion

For us, diversity means understanding that we are all unique. The individuality of each person results from the combination of different dimensions, be it previous experience, socio-economic background, age, race, place of origin and ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, physical abilities, religious beliefs or whatever the environment that has shaped us as human beings. This makes each person unique and unrepeatable.

We believe teams that value diversity achieve better results. This is because diversity brings different and complementary points of view, skills and ways of working, which together enrich the services we provide to our clients.

We have a policy of non-discrimination in recruitment and promotions and we want to continue to increase the representation of women in leadership positions. Externally, we support initiatives such as the United Nations' HeForShe and Leading Together, an INSEAD alumni association that seeks to advance gender equality at leadership level. Besides the important issue of gender equality, we are partners of the Portuguese Asperger Syndrome Association (APSA) and support its employability programme.

Mental health and well-being

We care about our people and are committed to ensuring that everyone in our organisation has the conditions and tools necessary to develop resilience and well-being in their daily routines, both mentally and physically.

Our approach to mental health and well-being is built around two core factors. This first is internally, where our priority is to give our people the tools they need to be at their best in terms of mental health, given the extremely demanding levels of performance. The second is externally, where we seek to be an active voice in business and society in promoting open and honest discussions about mental health in our working lives.

We are the first Portuguese law firm to sign up to the Mindful Business Charter, an initiative founded by Barclays, Addleshaw Goddard and Pinsent Masons to promote better mental health and well-being at work.

Transparent careers, flexibility and work-live balance

We seek the best talent so we offer the best conditions for our people to want to build their future with us. We have a clear and transparent career plan and a completely impartial evaluation model based on qualitative dimensions.

We recognise that our people have different needs and so we have designed a flexible working model, capable of adapting to these needs.

Work-life balance is one of our top priorities and, in addition to flexible working models, we support our people with extended parenting policies and personal hardship policies to assist in other personal or family situations.
