Contencioso administrativo e judicial

Litigation is one of our firm’s trademarks. Our work in cases involving various practice areas (civil, commercial, administrative, environmental, etc.), many of which resulted in relevant social and economic repercussion in Brazil, have placed us among the leading firms in the field, recognized by top trade publications.

Throughout our 68-year history we obtained the first habeas corpus during the Brazilian military dictatorship, acted in the defense and helped formulate the original arguments for monetary correction in economic plans and for economic and financial balance of administrative contracts, worked on complex corporate conflicts involving the country’s largest companies, and on the defense of the private sector against abuse by public authorities, among others.

In the administrative litigation field we represent public service concessionaires before regulatory agencies, notably in the infrastructure sector, to enforce agreements or review their terms, in administrative processes for non-compliance with obligations, or even to challenge previously held bids.

Our expert contribution in these instances, regardless of the sectors involved, is based on our experience and strategic thinking, always formulating legal solutions aligned with the client’s objective.
