We are used to deal with a diversified array of disputes, pursuing or defending litigation or arbitration proceedings, representing Brazilian and international companies in many industry sectors, such as basic and advanced materials, business services, energy and water, financial and banking services (investment management and funds), hospitality and leisure, industrial goods and services, infrastructure, real estate and technology (telecommunications).
We regularly act in administrative and judicial disputes encompassing a broad range of issues, actively representing clients before the Brazilian Federal and State Courts, including the Superior Tribunal of Justice - the higher court for non-constitutional matters - and the Federal Supreme Court.
We also act proactively and preventively, negotiating and drafting agreements so as to avoid future legal action whenever possible.
Among the many different issues we face on behalf of clients, we highlight:
- Business agreements
- Civil matters
- Consumer issues
- Corporate matters
- Land use
- Regulatory (concessions and permissions)
- Wills and estate law
Besides our litigation work, we have extensive experience in the arbitration of disputes, the ratification and enforcement in Brazil of foreign arbitration decisions and the drafting of arbitration provisions and agreements.
