Breadth of legal experience

Our solid understanding of the market enables us to support Brazilian clients across a range of activities: investment abroad, finance and infrastructure projects, as well as complex international arbitration disputes. It also makes us ideally placed to help international companies investing in, or exiting, Brazil and to offer advice in high-profile arbitration disputes there.

A leading international law firm, we’re home to some of the world’s most respected practitioners of business law. Lawyers knowledgeable about Brazil are based in our offices around the world. They include Brazilian qualified lawyers and many other Portuguese speakers. We often host Brazilian lawyers on secondment, to develop their exposure to high profile cross-border work.
