Trench Rossi Watanabe


Considered one of the largest law firms in Brazil, Trench Rossi Watanabe has a comprehensive and reputable practice, with expertise in all areas of law.

Established in 1959, the firm provides legal services to national and international clients from various markets, assisting them in managing their business in an ethical and efficient manner.

Through strategic cooperation with Baker McKenzie, the firm provides its clients with access to a global perspective from one of the broadest and strongest legal networks, working collaboratively with knowledgeable lawyers in several jurisdictions, providing insights and support to its clients’ operation wherever and whenever they need it.

Trench Rossi has extensive experience in complex and pioneering aspects of transactions and has developed cross-border competencies while maintaining accuracy with regard to technical quality, ethics and efficiency.

With offices located in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Brasília and Porto Alegre, the firm currently has approximately 200 lawyers ready to advise their clients with the knowledge and confidence required to address Brazilian laws, legal systems and unique business practices.

Trench Rossi also stands out for its efforts to promote a diverse and inclusive environment and acting responsibly with its entire network. Through its corporate social responsibility committee, the firm develops pro bono work, actions aimed at diversity and inclusion, sustainability and supports sociocultural activities. This culture of respect and inclusion is reaffirmed through the creation of five affinity groups, all formed by employees, with a focus on the following themes: gender equality, LGBTQI+, people with disabilities, ethnicity and religious tolerance. As a result of this strong commitment, the firm was awarded by Guia EXAME de Diversidade in March 2019. Also, in November 2019, Trench Rossi was recognised with the Human Rights and Diversity Seal of the São Paulo City Hall as one of the best practice companies in the Women, LGBTQ and Racial Equality categories.
