Litigation and Arbitration

Conflicts are inherent in the business world. Our practice of litigation and arbitration goes beyond the defense of the rights of our clients, to seek the best result for their business.

We continually strive to study and understand the activities of our clients. We know what the client wants and what it takes to reach that goal in a dispute.

Our work begins before the conflict. We assist our clients from the formation of their business, providing advice to avoid litigation scenarios or to better the position of clients in such cases.

With an even-handed approach, we seek consensual solutions with the adverse parties, while at the same time moving proactively and consistently in line with a clearly defined strategy, before administrative, judicial and arbitration courts both in Brazil and abroad.

The results are evidenced by the positioning of our litigation and arbitration practice in line with local and international rankings, the amounts involved in the cases under our supervision, as well as the high success rate that we attain in the disputes. Our methodology is effective. We always deliver the best result to our clients.

Insurance and Reinsurance

With a highly specialized practice that represents clients both locally and internationally, we provide advice that caters to all the needs of the insurance and reinsurance market, including the formation of companies, portfolio transfers, drafting of product and wordings, internal policies and controls, contract review, as well as the adjustment of high-complexity claims and defense in administrative proceedings, lawsuits and arbitrations.

We have a team fully dedicated to the sector with in-depth knowledge and a strategic view of the market, working together with other areas, whenever necessary, to provide complete and high added-value advice to our clients.

Consumer Law

Our consumer and retail group is a multidisciplinary and highly experienced team in dealing with the most complex legal issues faced by major retailers. We support our clients in the sector in all key areas of their business.

We have substantial experience working on market entry transactions, including advice on strategic growth and divestments, commercial relationships and regulatory compliance.

White-Collar Crime

We are the first full-service law firm in the country to implement the specialized white-collar department. In the last two decades, we have dedicated ourselves to the defense of individuals and companies both in complex cases, as well as in providing preventive assistance in matters arising from day-to-day activities, such as representing companies that are victims of fraud and other irregularities, recovering assets alongside with Brazilian and international authorities.

We understand that the implementation of a tailor-made strategy and the adequate communication are of great importance to safeguard the interests of our clients.

In addition, we have extensive experience in defensive investigations, working together with the administrative and judicial proceedings relating to tax crimes, environmental crimes, and capital market crimes.

We work in investigating incidents to assess individual liability aiming at the adoption of internal measures in the companies, as well as structuring pieces of evidence for the filing of legal measures in the criminal and civil spheres.
