Our essence

Our essence

We are a high-performance legal firm and a strategic partner that provides innovative solutions for complex problems

We continue to rethink and challenge our own convictions and beliefs in order to practice law differently. We believe that innovation is vital to our ability to provide ever more assertive and effective legal solutions to Brazilian and foreign clients.

Our high-performance team combines its expertise in offering highly integrated, collaborative legal services that are renowned throughout the market. As the ideal strategic partner for anticipating trends and solving your most complex problems, our full-service model unites the best lawyers across more than 40 areas of the law.

We believe our professionals are vital to our business and that performance and well-being go hand in hand. That is why we prioritize a humanized approach to people management, caring for our people and developing their full potential.

For us, practicing law is a means, not an end. We stand for democratic access to justice, the defense of fundamental rights and have pioneered pro bono legal practice in Brazil, providing free legal services to civil society organizations with financial constraints and individuals in economically and socially vulnerable situations.

This is how we give back to society. This is how we drive transformation.

We challenge the status quo, inspire the market and work toward creating a positive impact on society.
