Giambrone & Partners opens a new office in Porto, Portugal as part of an exponential Expansion Programme

As part of Giambrone & Partners ongoing development programme, we are delighted to announce that we have opened an office in Oporto, Portugal.

Gabriele Giambrone, founder and global managing partner at Giambrone & Partners commented: “I am extremely proud to announce the opening of the office in Portugal as part of our ambitious expansion plan aimed at offering our international clients an ever-widening range of legal services. Giambrone & Partners aims to build a sound legal platform offering comprehensive legal assistance across Europe whilst also extending our reach into Africa.”

The recent growth of commercial globalisation drives the demand for cross-border legal advice and representation in international courts such as The Hague is commonplace. Our clients need guidance and expertise across many jurisdictions to tackle their cross-border commercial transactions.

The Porto office will be headed by newly appointed partner, Diana Ribero, who is a highly regarded international lawyer with extensive experience across Europe relating to corporate and commercial matters, both contentious and non-contentious, international contracts and agreements, employment law, tax law and company incorporation across Europe.  Diana also has widespread knowledge and contacts in various growing economies in Africa.

Diana will work closely with Mário Pinheiro Torres who is an Advogado and partner working in the Porto office. Mário focuses on private client matters and has a broad range of experience in private client law including divorce and family law, immigration, real estate, employment, criminal defence, inheritance and probate.  Mário is also a highly regarded Arbitrator and is skilled in navigating complicated matters and noted for negotiating beneficial solutions for all parties in a dispute.  Mario has been appointed as an Arbitrator in several Chambers of Commerce.

The Porto team will be supported by Gonzalo Butori, a senior associate based between the offices in London and Barcelona and Carlo Pontei, a senior associate based in Milan, both of whom have global expertise involving contentious and non-contentious matters.

Diana commented “I am delighted to lead Giambrone & Partners new initiative in Portugal as well as the venture into Africa, which will add to the firm’s extensive international footprint.   It is always exciting to develop a profile in a new arena. I am looking forward to working closely with Mario, Gonzalo and Carlo.”

Giambrone & Partners recognises the challenges that our clients face resulting from the recent difficulties we have all encountered and the intention is to expand our locations and cutting-edge legal expertise, as well as investing technology to ensure our legal services are delivered not only rapidly but through each clients preferred vehicle to suit their convenience.
