Garrigues has strengthened its team in Portugal by bringing on board Tomás Pessanha as partner in charge of the Corporate and M&A practice at the Oporto office. Pessanha has had a lengthy professional career as adviser to domestic and foreign businesses and institutional investors on corporate law, commercial contracts, M&A, private equity, venture capital and restructuring processes.
