Mundie e Advogados is led by transactional powerhouse Rodolpho Protasio, whose shrewd vision for the firm’s evolution and consolidation has kept this operation ploughing forward in the wake of several high-profile departures.
The practice remains optimistic, despite losing key talent in its telecoms, data, antitrust and trade practice groups. While expertise in the telecoms area was considered Mundie’s calling card, its recent role in helping Swiss commodities trader Glencore acquire stakes totalling US$1.1 billion in mining facilities from Brazil’s Vale and Norwegian miner Norsk Hydro demonstrated the firm’s continued corporate and M&A prowess. Mundie’s energy, tax and litigation teams also remain strong.
Looking forward, the firm is planning to double down on its engagement in the regulatory tech sector, while ensuring its energy and mining groups remain robust. Strategic hiring and promotions will help drive this evolution.
Mundie champions a multidisciplinary approach to work, while fostering innovation, collaboration and the well-being of its employees. It offers funding for LLMs and other international study programmes, while productivity is encouraged through a recently restructured, points-based compensation programme.
Mundie is based in São Paulo and has offices in Rio de Janeiro and Brasília.
