IADC member and IADC International Committee Chair Manuel Barrocas, a partner at Barrocas & Associados - Sociedade de Advogados, is being awarded with 'The Order of Sacred Treasure with Gold Rays' award from the Council of Ministers of Japan. The order will be delivered to the Embassy of Japan in Lisbon on February 13.
This is a high-ranking order of Japan and is based on the legal services Manuel has provided to the government of Japan more than 35 years ago, and to Japanese companies operating in Portugal.
Manuel began his legal practice in 1970 and founded the firm in 1989. He has been mentioned and recommended by international directories (Chambers & Partners, Who’s Who Legal (Arbitration) and others) as one the most prominent Portuguese lawyers. He has participated, either as speaker or lecturer, in a large number of seminar and conferences in many areas of law, particularly Commercial Law matters and Arbitration. His experience is mainly advising on many transactions including corporate law, M&A, banking law, general contract and arbitration, and litigation.
