María Vidal-Pardo and Rita Xavier de Brito among Europe’s Best Up-and-Coming Female Lawyers

May 14, 2024

Our two colleagues have been named Rising Stars in Europe by the prestigious US publication after it analysed over 100 submissions from across 40 firms and 16 countries. María, the only Spanish lawyer to receive the award, has been recognised for her M&A, Corporate Governance and Regulatory (Banking) practice, and Rita for her Real Estate practice.

All candidates were judged against the following criteria: the quality of their client base; examples of driving forward the size or reputation of their practice area; the scale, significance and complexity of their cases; their client feedback and general market reputation; the standing of their mentor; and any other examples of career success and innovation.
