Aceris Law’s Brazil Arbitration Lawyers Desk is a dedicated team of lawyers at Aceris Law, a specialised international arbitration law firm, which accompanies clients involved in arbitrations concerning Brazil, i.e., where a contract is executed in Brazil, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Brazil, or the Brazilian State or a Brazilian State entity is involved.
Aceris Law’s Harvard, Oxford and Sorbonne trained lawyers are admitted to bars of Western Europe, Eastern Europe and North America and have significant prior experience dealing with commercial, construction and investment treaty arbitrations under the ICC, ICSID, UNCITRAL, LCIA, SCC, SIAC, ICDR, VIAC and other arbitration rules, many of which have concerned the Lusophone world.
We maintain permanent access to offices in Sao Paulo, Brasilia and Rio de Janiero to meet and work with clients, although our home office is in Geneva, Switzerland, and we are always accessible to clients, regardless of their location, by videoconference. Our Brazil Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Brazilian jurisprudence and doctrine, while speaking English and reading Portuguese.
Our Brazil Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Brazilian lawyers, who are involved depending on the specific needs of a given arbitration. This ensures that our clients obtain the best arbitration legal representation while also maintaining cost-effectiveness for arbitrations involving Brazil.
We have significant prior experience with arbitrations involving South America and in Lusophone countries. For example, Aceris Law’s Brazil Arbitration Lawyers Desk served as a counsel in an ICC dispute regarding a joint venture between companies from South America and Northern Europe, and we have provided legal advice to multiple Brazilian entities with commercial disputes with their European counterparts. We have also been involved in numerous arbitrations with Portuguese elements including an ad hoc arbitration regarding the sale and leaseback of a plane by an Angolan company and a construction dispute in the water industry, inter alia.
By having a dedicated team for arbitrations concerning Brazil, Aceris Law ensures that the arbitrations involving Brazil are handled efficiently and cost-effectively, making the best use of our arbitration lawyers’ know-how as well as linguistic and cultural skills.
