Rodrigo Jardim Gonçalves was born in Lisbon in 1971. He soon began to carve out his own path in the world of Law, influenced by the likes of Luís Nobre Guedes, F. Castello Branco, Pedro Rebelo de Sousa and Alves Mendes, whom he studied beside, with a focus on Litigation, Civil, Commercial and Corporate Law.

Aware of the importance of team-work, he has kept himself surrounded by a solid group of collaborators, who have followed him over the past decade.

As a married father of five he values the importance of finding the right balance between his professional and personal life, and this is visible in the day-to-day operations of the firm.

His commitment to the success of JGSA has led him to strengthen the presence of his team in certain fields of expertise, such as Maritime, Tourism and Foreign Investment Law and, more recently, Wine Lawyer, having attended the 2017 (Bordeaux) and 2018 (Napa Valley) AIDV - Association Internationale des Juristes du Droit de la Vigne et du Vin Annual Conferences editions.
