Cuatrecasas, Gonçalves Pereira is strongly committed to internationalization, and it encourages and promotes training actions and professional practices that prepare our lawyers to successfully face the challenges posed by a global market. We promote the mobility of our lawyers amongst our different offices and to other law firms with which we have collaboration agreements.
Our program is unique in the sector: PPAI and PDA.
International Advocacy Support Program (PPAI)
If you have recently graduated and have a clear interest in developing an international profile, we offer you the International Advocacy Support Program (Programa Pro Abogacía Internacional, “PPAI”).
The program consists of three stages:
• Rotation through the different areas and offices of Cuatrecasas, Gonçalves Pereira.
• Master programs abroad (preferably in the USA).
• Assignment in a foreign law firm.
Once these three stages have been completed, the lawyer will return to Cuatrecasas, Gonçalves Pereira and join the practice area and group of his or her field of interest. The corresponding group’s coordinating partner and the program’s managing partner will have confirmed this incorporation during the rotation period.
Doctorate and Practice of Law Program (PDA)
Under the PDA, trainee lawyers with top marks can develop their careers while continuing to train at the highest level. During the program’s five years, the lawyers do their daily work while completing a doctoral thesis; they also spend some time abroad.
