In parallel, the firm also works in class actions, having obtained relevant results such as the dismissal of a claim filed by the public prosecutor’s office against a tele collection company that aimed at restricting the number of calls that could be made to debtors; (2) Credit and asset recovery team has a very practical and a hands on approach, including lawyers external bound team who complete field work to complete tasks such as asset search and seizure, administration of crop harvesting and animal repossession. This year, the collection team has achieved significant results and has been qualified as the most reliable among all firms that supports one of our clients; (3) Restructuring and bankruptcy team works in benefit of creditors to maximise the possibility of credit recovery, avoiding the release of collateral or the application / extension of debtor protection terms; (4) Civil litigation group oversees strategic and complex cases, including participating in hearings and presenting oral arguments. The main objective of the team is to propose specific and tailor-made solutions to each case.
