From startups to large Brazilian and multinational corporations in a variety of industries (such as, telecommunications, technology, banking, health, automotive, aeronautics, consulting, retail, entertainment, media and advertising, education, fashion, beauty and cosmetics), our clients share a common trait: they challenge the status quo in order to create the world of tomorrow.

Our team is up to the task. Combining experience and creativity, first-rate academic background and a practical, business-oriented approach, our attorneys thrive in the face of the legal challenges created by disruptive technologies.

Our firm has more than fifteen years of experience in Seed and Venture Capital investments, Private Equity and strategic M&A deals. Domestic and international IP acquisition, corporate and non-corporate joint-ventures, commercial agreements, corporate structuring, tax and regulatory planning, designing long-term incentives and retention plans for key executives are among our most recurring projects.

Our R&D team constantly produces breakthrough studies and white-papers on matters right at the conversion of law and technology. The result can be seen on our websites, where they are published.

We have created Espaço Startup, an online portal that continuously publishes articles and templates of standard documents to help entrepreneurs with basic legal challenges.

We are co-founders of Privacy Hub, a consortium of companies (including Field Fisher, Symantec, Brunswick and AON) that provide Brazilian and multinational companies with comprehensive services regarding data privacy.

We are a leading law firm in the Brazilian tech/innovation ecosystem.
