Firm Overview:
Pinheiro Neto Advogados is a Brazilian, independent and full-service firm specialising in multi-disciplinary deals, and was the first Brazilian law firm to specialise in corporate clients. Over more than 75 years, the firm translates the Brazilian legal environment for the benefit of local and foreign clients.

With clients in almost 80 countries, the firm has grown organically, and developed a distinctive, tight-knit culture, with a low associate-to-partner ratio. Its unique, democratic governance structure promotes transparency and consensusbuilding among the partners.

Innovation: With a focus on innovation, the firm has kept its competitive edge throughout the years, and is widely hailed as a beacon of the Brazilian legal market. Also, Pinheiro Neto is an affiliate of Stanford Law School’s Program in Law, Science & Technology (LST), which supports cutting-edge research, teaching and programme development.

Professionals: To remain as a valued strategic partner for its clients, the firm invests heavily in professional development, not only through strong on-the-job training, but also by means of the highly structured Pinheiro Neto Professional Development Programme, the first of its kind in Brazil. Pinheiro Neto encourages its attorneys to pursue international associate programmes and postgraduate studies (LLM, etc.) abroad. In addition, the firm’s lawyers can tap into the largest and most complete private legal library in Brazil.

Social responsibility: Pinheiro Neto Advogados was the first Brazilian law firm to be certified as carbon neutral; the first Brazilian law firm to join the country’s largest social investors in the Group of Outreach Institutions, Foundations and Companies (GIFE); and the first Brazilian law firm to be recognised by the state of São Paulo diversity accreditation body (Selo Paulista da Diversidade). The firm’s pioneering pro bono programme has compensated professionals for their involvement in social causes since 2009.

Clients: The firm advises and represents both local and international clients in a broad range of sectors, including automotive, banking and financial services, construction and materials, energy and natural resources, environment and waste management, health care, oil and gas, real estate and technology.

Geographical reach: The firm has correspondents throughout Brazil, and has developed close and solid working relationships with first-tier law firms around the world.
