Demarest hires new partner in the labor and employment area
Stella Castro is the latest lawyer to be hired as partner in the labor and employment practice area of Demarest, one of the most respected law firms in Brazil and Latin America. With her arrival, the team’s practice now boasts six partners and a total of 24 lawyers.
Stella holds a degree in Law from UERJ (University of the State of Rio de Janeiro) and a postgraduate degree in Business Law with a focus on Labor Law from FGV (Fundação Getúlio Vargas).
With 18 years of experience in the area, Stella has worked in large Brazilian firms and is considered one of the most admired lawyers in the country by local legal directory and magazine Análise Advocacia. Stella has worked in notable cases and collective bargaining matters across a wide variety of sectors of the economy – such as mining, banking, energy, technology and food, with a focus on labor litigation –, in addition to cases for executives of large companies.
“The addition of Stella to the Demarest team further bolsters our performance aimed at meeting the needs of our clients, and especially in a period of important debates in this area, such as the resumption of face-to-face work and possible changes in labor legislation, in view of the electoral landscape in the country”, says Paulo Coelho da Rocha, managing partner of the firm.
“Demarest’s commitment to creating strategies that aim to contribute to the construction of a more just and equal society was a decisive factor in my decision to be part of this team. Being part of one of the most respected law firms in Brazil and Latin America is an honor and a great challenge”, says the new partner.
