The ‘excellent’, 'dynamic' team at VDA is noted for its superb track record. It acts in complex, high-value deals for lenders and borrowers, handles regulatory matters and attracted some innovative work. It advised a banking syndicate consisting of Unicredit, Siemens Bank, BCP, Novo Banco, Demir-Halk Bank, DenizBank and the European Investment Bank on the €240m debt refinancing of six port operators. The matter was led by Pedro Cassiano Santos, who is singled out for his longstanding expertise. Paula Gomes Freire, Cláudia da Cruz Almeida and managing associates Tiago Correia Moreira and Benedita Aires are also recommended. Pedro Simões Coelho and Hugo Moredo Santos are the other names to note.
