TozziniFreire Advogados is praised for the ‘personalised service and excellence‘ of its tax team, which assists clients from across a wide range of industries. The firm’s sizeable department allows for a strong degree of specialisation in key areas such as direct tax, indirect tax and customs law, from both a contentious and non-contentious perspective. The team continues to expand following the recruitment of highly rated Brasília-based federal tax litigator Alberto Medeiros from Stocche Forbes Advogados, and the promotion of litigation partner Bruno Teixeira, who is praised for his ‘great efficiency‘. Other key partners include practice co-heads Gustavo Nygaard, for corporate tax, and Renata Emery, for advisory and contentious matters.
