YOURS

SMART AND PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS

WHO WE ARE

We are business lawyers

We are counsel to multinational groups, investment funds, financial institutions, national players and high net-worth individuals in their complex matters where our technical added-value and business-oriented approach makes a difference.

We guarantee Partner involvement

No work leaves our Firm without prior Partner review. Our Partners are in the frontlines of all cases, pick-up Client’s phone-calls, respond quickly to e-mails, review every line of briefs, memos and petitions. You will not be sidelined to an Associate.

We are highly technical

We are Law Professors, with Masters and Bachelor Degrees from Brazil’s best institutions. We have written books in the matters we litigate over. We are constantly published in Brazil’s most relevant Law Journals.

Relationships matter

We build relationships with our Clients. We are not merely lawyers. We add-value in wherever is needed, be it in renegotiating terms with suppliers, clients and creditors, be it in accompanying and assisting in Board and Shareholder meetings.
