2019 is drawing to an end. Not the happiest end, but also not the worst.

Although many expectations regarding the performance of the current administration failed to materialise, very important steps towards the recovery of our economic growth have been taken, among them the reduction of the bureaucratic requirements that hampered entrepreneurship in Brazil and the restructuring of our social security system. Hopefully, the results will start to be noticed in 2020. In the meantime, companies are still struggling to survive in a cash strapped environment.

Such scenarios highlight the importance of a skilled and determined legal department, acting in close cooperation with management, to be able to deal with the challenges posed by an economy that is starting to recover, though still remaning weak and vulnerable. Versatility, innovation, pro activity are some of the key aspects of a successful legal team that shall be always alert to risks and opportunities. The legal teams nominated for this year’s GC Powerlist: Brazil meet or even exceed such requirements.

We from Castro Barros are happy and proud to team up again with The Legal 500 in honouring our
colleagues who are pursuing careers as in-house counsel, and are hereby well represented by the
nominees for this 2019 event. Congratulations and keep up the good work!

Yours truly,

José Augusto Leal
