About Us

With a practice spanning more than 70 years, we are one of the most respected law firms in Brazil and Latin America.

We have never moved away from our main purpose and long-term commitment: to deliver legal services with the highest standard of quality and excellence. Our lawyers are highly motivated to contribute to the commercial success of our clients.

We support our clients with an integrated approach and teams carefully tailored to the needs of our clients and each specific project. Our lawyers are readily available when and where required.

We consistently rank among Brazil’s leading law firms in a wide variety of publications, including Chambers, Thomson Reuters, Latin Lawyer, The Legal 500 and IFLR.

Our international approach

We are a Brazilian independent firm. We believe in offering the best options available in every single jurisdiction to our clients. We do not submit to any exclusivity.

We maintain strong and close relationships with independent firms who are market leaders in their respective jurisdictions. This allows us to offer high quality and consistent service at all levels and fully aligned across all jurisdictions. In consultation with our clients, we choose the right local partner firm for the matter at hand.

 

Our New York office

We advise on Brazilian law to clients located in the United States from our New York office.

Our New York office functions very much like other transaction teams in the Brazilian offices of the firm, but with the convenience for clients to have their Brazilian law team in New York. We are where our clients are and wherever they need us to be.

Our team works closely together with leading law firms in the US — combining local knowledge and international expertise. Core areas in our New York office include mergers and acquisitions, private equity, capital markets, finance, infrastructure and debt restructuring.
