THE LEGAL 500 > EVENTS > GC Powerlist: Iberia Teams - Portugal
On 25 May, around 70 of Portugal’s leading in-house counsel gathered together at the Eleven restaurant in Lisbon to celebrate the launch of the GC Powerlist: Iberia Teams – Portugal. The Legal 500, along with leading firm PLMJ, greeted those members of the Portuguese in-house community who had been recognised as among the 100 leading legal teams active in Iberia. The selection was based on an extensive list of nominations and was backed by an extensive three month period of independent research and interviews.
The GC Powerlist highlights the most influential and innovative corporate counsel in a number of markets around the world and the event was a good opportunity to reflect on the strength of the Portuguese legal market and celebrate the achievement of the county’s standout corporate counsel. It also proved to be a great evening of networking and discussion for the country’s top corporate counsel.
The event was attended by senior representatives from some of Portugal’s leading companies, including Galp Energia, TAP, CTT Correios de Portugal, Jeronimo Martins, Efacec and Novabase along with representatives of the Portuguese operations of major international companies including Brazilian conglomerate Andrade Gutierrez, French multinational electrical systems provider Thales and a number of global financial institutions.
