To help clients respond faster and more effectively to the increasing business opportunities between Brazil and both key existing trade partners and specific fast-growing economies, the firm pioneered the creation of foreign practice groups in Latin America, composed of professionals dedicated to these major trade and investment destinations. Starting with the Asian initiative (comprising the China, Korea and Japan practice groups) and fast developing towards other markets (German-speaking and Latin American countries), these unique knowledge centres are staffed with professionals familiar with the culture, legal and business practices of each region, and who are charged with keeping up to date with bilateral trade relations developments between Brazil and those countries. 

With fully owned offices in São Paulo (2), Campinas, Rio de Janeiro, Porto Alegre, Brasilia and New York, the firm is able to guarantee its clients the same outstanding services and one-firm resource throughout the country, enabling it to safeguard its culture, mission and values.
