This work is done aiming at future gains with the potential reduction of contingencies and exposure, avoiding further litigation costs to the firm’s clients.

Another feature that distinguishes PVS Advogados is the solid business background of many of the partners of the firm, who worked in multinational companies or several different transactions in different jurisdictions.
