Presentation made by the attorneys Iris Bennett, Partner of the US Law Firm Smith Pachter McWhorter PLC, and her associate Paulo Gusmão, together with André de Almeida and Leonardo B. Leite, partners of Almeida Advogados.
Almeida Advogados was established in 2001 based on a partnership of competent professionals committed to practicing law, with an initial focus on mergers and acquisitions and corporate restructuring. Since then, the firm has grown exponentially, adding new practices, opening new offices and expanding into several areas of corporate law. Over twelve years later, we have extensive experience in advising both Brazilian and foreign companies, as well as competently representing them (when needed) in litigation.
With our headquarters in Brazil’s most important business center, as well as strategically located offices and solid international partnerships, Almeida Advogados serves as a true partner to its clients. We aim to understand our clients’ businesses, including each sector’s respective nuances. Our firm specializes in assisting new businesses and minimizing their legal and business risks.
Our over 120 employees have studied at reputable universities throughout Brazil and abroad. As a team, we seek to provide our clients with well-reasoned solutions based on flexibility and creativity.
Our mission consists of advising Brazilian or multinational companies on legal matters of any nature and complexity, both prior to and during litigation, based on the following premises:
Adherence to well-respected legal practices
Understanding and implementation of specific business strategies
Clear and direct explanations
As the law is directly related to the economy and society, high-quality legal services depend upon the adoption of good practices and an attorney’s well-developed communication and interpersonal skills.
