Orizzo Marques Advogados originated from the convergence of the desires and the abilities of our partners to provide customized, hands-on service to its clients—medium and large Brazilian and multinational companies in a wide range of industries (retail, nutrition, chemical, automotive, pharmaceutical, consumer goods, public utilities, and several types of services).

Our founding partners have ample experience in corporate law. We are headquartered in the city of São Paulo, and currently our team has approximately 30 professionals – partners, associates, and third-party affiliates – specializing in the several different areas which concern corporate law (contracts, civil litigation, tax, social security, employment law, and industrial relations).

Our portfolio includes not only the active management of ongoing lawsuits and permanent legal counseling, but also a wide array of strategic services, such as tax planning, assistance in mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures, preparation and negotiation of strategic technology and intellectual property contracts, facilitation of foreign direct investment in Brazil, assistance in public procurement procedures, and estate planning.

The firm is vastly experienced in carrying out multidisciplinary projects, under committed and creative coordination.
