Araújo e Policastro Advogados > Firm Profile
Araújo e Policastro Advogados has built a reputation as one of the most respected law firms in Brazil, with a long-standing reputation for excellence in various areas of legal practice. Over 55 years of practice, founding partners Theodoro Araújo and Décio Policastro have been successful in keeping to the firm’s original goal: providing its clients with the highest quality legal services in a professional, creative and practical manner. Araújo e Policastro, founded in 1962, is a full-service law firm with headquarters in the city of São Paulo, Latin America’s main business and industrial centre.
The firm’s core practices are international corporate law, contracts, M&A and tax, which are complemented by numerous specialty areas, including insurance, banking, finance and capital markets, antitrust, competition and cartel, infrastructure, regulatory and public law, privatisations and concession of public services, energy, oil and gas, mining and natural resources, roads, ports and airports, telecommunications, intellectual property, information technology and data protection, litigation and arbitration, international trade, labour, real estate, environmental, consumer protection laws, healthcare and life sciences, wealth and succession planning, family law, trusts and estates.
The firm’s attorneys have studied in the finest institutions in Brazil and many have also attended specialist courses or master of laws programmes in the US and Europe, and worked for law firms abroad. They perform to the standards of the international legal community for a prompt and efficient practice dealing with clients’ legal and business needs.
By keeping up the vision of delivering personal and high-quality services to its clients, Araújo e Policastro has been able to grow and diversify without losing focus on its original profile and goals. The personal attention and hands-on involvement of the partners in the legal work have been the clients’ most appreciated aspect of the firm. Araújo e Policastro’s carefully planned growth and focus on the quality of its legal practice has resulted in a sound reputation across the Brazilian and worldwide business and legal communities.
The firm continues to progress its strategic policies of continued growth, but without becoming less efficient in its provision of quality legal services. The expansion movements are a result of the growing demand for legal services and the glance of areas of high growth potential or which require high specialisation, such as antitrust and international litigation and trade. The hiring of highly skilled professionals, with wide expertise and solid careers, reflects our expansion strategy, which is to have the best talented professionals, and to offer services of the highest quality. “With our structure and tradition in the corporate area, I understand that we can expand our legal services to a global market which is increasingly dynamic and demanding,” says Theodoro Araújo, co-founder of the firm.
