Analysis: Martinelli Advogados is headquartered in Joinville, in the state of Santa Catarina, and was founded in 1997. It has since swiftly expanded its footprint, now with an impressive presence across the country, with offices in six states and the federal capital. Clients have flocked to the firm thanks to its competitive prices, which has underpinned its impressive expansion. Both the tax practice group and the corporate and M&A team have been highlighted by peers, whilst the firm's labour group has also been particularly busy of late, receiving client praise thanks to its business driven approach to advice, as well as lawyers flexibility. Lawyers here count on a steady caseload of tax planning work and comfortably handle litigation at municipal, state and federal levels. Elsewhere, the corporate team handles commercial work, M&A deals, corporate restructurings and corporate governance for a wide range of clients.
