/ Career


After completing her undergraduate degree in Law from the Catholic University of Lisbon, Susana joined one of the largest and most prestigious law firms in Portugal to start her work experience.

She never doubted that law was her vocation and the profession to which she would devote her life, always open to new experiences that complement her professional development, she was honoured to accept the invitation to consult for the Minister of the Republic for the Azores, a role she took on even during her legal intern period.

She did decide to devote herself to advocacy and, although she also assumed functions as an internal lawyer, it was in law firms where she has developed the majority of her career for nearly 30 years.

In April 2012, she was hired as a partner at Santiago Mediano Abogados, an undertaking she has dedicated herself to full time. The success of clients is what drives her professional realisation: becoming part of the team of clients and helping them to specify their projects is her highest goal.
