About

Provided by Pinheiro Neto Advogados

Arbitration and Mediation

We dedicate efforts and creativity to achieve peaceful resolutions through prevention and mediation and thus avoid arbitration proceedings. When, for different reasons, this scenario is unfeasible, we feel equally determined to defend our clients in arbitral proceedings thanks to the expertise acquired over 25 years of experience in relevant and complex cases.

Having a team with national and international experience, we assist our clients in arbitration, negotiation and mediation proceedings as well as in adopting mechanisms, such as dispute resolution boards, specially designed to prevent or resolve disputes during the course of the business relationship.


Commercial Litigation

We count on a team with a great deal of expertise in corporate and commercial litigations, capable of identifying strengths and mitigating vulnerabilities. We develop case-by-case strategies for judicial or arbitral litigations, including alternative dispute resolution methods, always focusing on maximizing customer value and saving time.

Success in any litigation requires full immersion in the issue in dispute, thorough investigation of facts, study of all alternatives, combination of multidisciplinary teams, surveys, assessments, refining and preservation of evidentiary elements and extensive preparation, in addition to proven expertise in the litigation area.
