For over 60 years Silveiro Advogados has been on the cutting edge of legal practice. Originally established in southern Brazil, Silveiro Advogados provides high-end legal services in a variety of practice areas throughout the country. It has developed a trademark culture of going to the root of the issues, working hand-in-hand with clients and looking for solutions to meet their long-term needs.

The firm

Founded in 1956 in Porto Alegre, Silveiro later expanded to Sa?o Paulo. Moving into its third generation of lawyers, the core values of the firm, including its absolute ethics and trustworthiness, were firmly established and distributed by its founder through all the practice areas.

The majority of its practitioners have developed their career at the firm, and the team currently comprises more than 50 qualified lawyers, aims for the highest standards of academic development and international practice, and speaks a great variety of languages.

The firm has built a solid name in corporate law. Five of the 15 largest Brazilian corporations are assisted by its specialized team. The partners Andr? Silveiro and Pedro Chagas have been involved in more than 40 important M&A transactions in southern Brazil. Likewise, the litigation and civil law practice at Silveiro has accrued prestige through Ricardo Ranzolin's track record in complex litigation before state courts and arbitration tribunals, which has allowed the firm to build strong and long-lasting relationships with clients. The firm also relies on the expertise of tax lawyers Alberto Brentano and Sergio Lewin and public law professor and former vice-director of the University of Rio Grande do Sul Law School Manoel Andr? da Rocha, who is in charge of the public law practice alongside partner Ricardo Moraes.

The intellectual property practice has been consistently increasing through WIPO arbitrator and partner Rodrigo Azevedo, providing cutting-edge services related to internet law for major companies. Guilherme Guimar?es coordinates labor and employment law, the fastest-growing area in the firm. S?o Paulo partner Rodrigo Mutti leads the real estate practice, advising clients through all the stages of property transactions. Silveiro's expert team also includes developing practices in family law, environmental law, competition and antitrust, bankruptcy and financial restructuring.
