About

Provided by Demarest Advogados

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.
