What we have done and what we are devoted to

Throughout one-and-a-half decade, Paulo M Nasser and his team have been dedicated to complex strategic disputes, in Brazil and abroad.

They have represented clients in judicial and arbitral disputes involving construction; distribution; (re)insurance; sports transactions; M&A deals; commercial contracts; competition; and labor relationships at top-management level.

In parallel, the team’s experience in disputes also allowed them to act on its prevention. This is possible through clear and accurate contract drafting; effective risk management consultancy at pre-litigation stages; and by using alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and negotiation.
