As the seventh largest economy in the world, Brazil is an especially strategic location from which K&L Gates can serve clients’ needs in Latin America. São Paulo, one of the world’s largest cities and business centers, is an ideal site for the firm’s 39th office.
The São Paulo office is licensed as a foreign legal consultancy, as required by the Brazilian Bar Association. The firm’s lawyers in São Paulo offer distinct capabilities in international finance and capital markets, investment management, construction and project development, tax, and arbitration. With its international law experience, our team guides clients in establishing and developing operations in Brazil and provides legal counsel to major Brazilian and international industrial and financial services clients. The office also works in coordination with K&L Gates lawyers in the United States, Europe, Asia, Australia and the Middle East to serve our clients globally.
The office assists Brazil-based companies with global finance, compliance, commercial, intellectual property, tax, and disputes matters by drawing upon the firm’s worldwide capabilities in a wide variety of disciplines, including energy, infrastructure, and resources. Similarly, the firm’s experience in the financial services and international banking arenas positions the office to serve Brazil’s asset managers and investment firms doing business globally.
