Dispute resolution

Sérvulo & Associados bolstered the practice by adding Mafalda Ferreira Santos from Cuatrecasas to the team. In recent highlights, it represented BES and Banif in several cases following the application of resolution measures by the Bank of Portugal; the National Civil Protection Authority (ANPC) in two cases against Heliportugal concerning forest firefighting helicopters; and Sporting in a dispute with former players for breach of contract. João Saúde is recommended, as is Rui Medeiros for his arbitration work.
