Overview



Brazil has long had a reputation for excessive litigation on minor matters such as overtime claims. However, with a unique combination of legal expertise and multicultural knowledge, our team provides business-friendly strategies for successful workforce management.

Beyond handling such practical matters as compensation, class actions and individual claims, we believe that workplace risk prevention and human resource management require a comprehensive, forward-looking approach that integrates specialist skills across the legal spectrum.

Drawing on the knowledge of corporate, tax, intellectual property law, civil contracts and other areas, we help companies to operate effectively in the Brazilian business environment by providing a wide array of services. 

We also understand that human resource management can involve tough decisions. Our team negotiates and prepares exclusive termination agreements in cases of either dismissal or resignation of executives and highly skilled professionals. Tempering firm decision making with a constructive attitude, we devise confidentiality terms, reasonable non-compete agreements, and employee benefits and obligations. 

The team has an excellent reputation for bringing strong ethical standards, transparency and respect to collective bargaining in various sectors. We act with care to achieve a positive outcome for the client, pursuing litigation whenever the issue results in a strike.
