For many decades, L. O. Baptista Advogados has been acting in the main areas of Business Law, always based on values that became the firm’s brand: technical excellence with strategic view. Our team is comprised by 70 lawyers who focus on the goals and businesses of each client. Our professionals are specialized in the most diverse areas of law and economy, many of which also act as professors, arbitrators or leaders of the most reputable domestic and foreign institutions in their respective areas.

Offering solutions to an ever-changing society and legal environment is key to the firm’s success and crucial to clients’ businesses. Our Fashion Law practice was one of the first ones to be established in Brazil with a full-time dedicated team who focus on the mechanisms for protecting the copyrights and intellectual property of stylists and companies, as well as labor, tax and competition issues deriving from the activities developed by the textile and accessory industries.

More recently, aware of the specific needs of startup companies and investors, the firm reorganized practices to assist these clients in a multidisciplinary way. This customized organization around the client has proven to be effective for legal structuring of new businesses and investments, ranging from the creation of contracts and documents to tax and labor aspects, intellectual property issues and dispute resolution matters.

L.O. Baptista is also prepared to provide safe, creative and intelligent solutions for its clients in addressing complex legal issues related to the use of technology. We work on topics that are increasingly present in business, such as data protection, storage and transfer, Big Data and Internet of Things (IOT). The team is able to offer high-level legal advice and excellent services to companies from a wide range of market segments, anticipating needs and mitigating risks
