Key clients







Believing in a project, in a dream, isn’t always easy, nor enough to make it come true. You need more! The difference between merely believing in what is possible and reaching a goal involves a combination of competence, honesty, and commitment.

They say that luck does not exist and is just the result of preparation that was executed well. If that is the case, then Zeigler Advogados was born ready-made. It represents decades of work conducted by professionals well recognized in the market.

Silvia Zeigler, founding partner, is today one of the most highly recognized lawyers in Brazil, and her name is always included in surveys carried out by publications like Análise Advocacia (Advocacy Analysis). She works with national and international clients in many areas, and her work with contract, consumer, environmental and regulatory law stands out.

Gerardo Figueiredo Junior, another founding partner, is a professional with extensive experience in regulatory law, antitrust and compliance, contributing in recent years to the development of food law in Brazil through chapters published in international works, lectures, and other academic activities, as well as to act strongly in life sciences.

Considering even this trajectory, it was necessary to deliver more. Believing in a union of talents, professionals, who were well-known and experienced, joined Zeigler Advogados, along with others who are building their own history.

Diversity, equality of gender, variety of opinions, good working environment are values strongly defended by Zeigler’s team and this is reflected naturally in the way we deal with clients and in the quality of our work.

And it is in this atmosphere of renewal that Zeigler Advogados presents itself as a firm that always prioritizes the creation of lasting bonds with mutual trust, whether internally or with clients.
