Innovation in the field of Corporate Law

History of Almeida Advogados

After successfully working at large law firms, and before turning 30, André de Almeida founded Almeida Advogados in 2001. Initially focused on M&A and corporate restructuring, he quickly saw the potential for a firm committed to exceptional value-added services in all areas of corporate law. Thus began Almeida Advogados and its niche in advising Brazilian and international companies on corporate law, alternative dispute resolution and general litigation matters.
Having grown exponentially, the law firm now has over 250 professionals at its offices in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, Belo Horizonte and Recife. We credit this expansion to our team’s commitment to personalized service, modern spirit and determination to shape the future of lawyering.
