Paula Ricardo Madeira


She graduated from the Catholic University of Lisbon School of Law in 1996, and interned at the firm “Sociedade de Advogados Manuel Cortes Rosa e Raul Soares da Veiga”. She has been practising law since 1998 and completed a post-graduate course in civil procedural practice in 2010.


Between 1992 and 2005 she worked at a medium sized family-run company. This way, she joined the business world while first pursuing her studies and then practising law. During that time, she gained an immense appreciation for businesspeople, a vision of companies from a special “insider perspective”, and a keen understanding of the need to seek out negotiated solutions that avoid the level of distress frequently inherent in judicial proceedings.


And because the best solution is often only reached after a heated legal dispute, she has acquired vast civil litigation experience in both judicial and arbitral courts.

Beyond the office

Because she considers her practice of the law to be her way of life, she rarely strays far from her work. Nevertheless, when she has a chance, she particularly enjoys travelling through Europe and is now discovering more far-flung destinations and other cultures. When in Lisbon, she loves to share a good meal and lively conversation, preferably against the backdrop of fado and guitar music.
