Lawyers must be honest and empathetic toward clients because if not, they are not good lawyers.
Rafael Fontana
Senior Partner
We are passionate about law. We are passionate about people. We listen to our clients, we untangle their problems and we provide them with honest solutions. Our greatest satisfaction comes from the trust our clients place in us, enabling us to participate in the construction of their future.


We share our clients’ objectives, successes and challenges. We are committed to accompanying and helping them at each stage and in all areas of their business. We offer tailormade solutions through our international network made up of specialized and interrelated practice areas.

Rule of law
Our advisory services reflect the unquestionably vocational nature—for clients and society—of our profession. Integrity and transparency are always present in our practice and enable us, with the help of our pro bono program, to contribute to the achievement and preservation of rule of law and access to justice.

Our people
Over 19000 professionals based at our 26 offices work as a single team: they collaborate, share challenges and work together to always exceed our clients’ expectations.

We incorporate environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) criteria in our service provision and in our internal management. Our sustainability management is assessed externally, and in 2023, we obtained the Ecovadis gold certificate.

We apply innovation in all areas. We use technological processes and resources to complement our legal activity to the benefit of our clients. Our Knowledge and Innovation Group (ACI) is constantly implementing new projects to promote our global R+D+I strategy. Click here for more information.
