Being socially responsible implies transforming all the values we believe into a daily practice that guides our attitudes in the relationship we develop. Although our business is centered on offering legal advice with excellence, serving our clients ethically and transparently, nonetheless, our purpose goes way beyond.
It is our goal to help strengthen the Brazilian society through actions linked to diversity, culture and education, including investments through tax waivers. Our professionals periodically take part in volunteer activities, which awake and support the development of other individuals, contributing not only to the growth of the Firm and each of its members, but also to the growth of our country.
Pro bono advocacy is also encouraged, as it gives us the opportunity to help and grow, personally and professionally.
