São Paulo, Brazil (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
In early 2012, Angélico Advogados set out to help foreign individuals, as well as small and midsize companies, with their business activities in Brazil. The firm’s method, however, has been far from conventional. First, the firm hired an American lawyer, Greg Barnett, to lead its international legal services team. Then, the firm trained a team of bilingual Brazilian lawyers who focus their practice on helping foreign clients. And now, through its blog, the firm has created a unique resource for clients to read about relevant legal and business issues in Brazil.
The blog includes articles in English and Portuguese that are written by the firm’s attorneys, staff, and featured guests. The articles give readers a succinct analysis on topics of general interest, such as forming a company in Brazil, divorce procedures in Brazil, and the tax implications of sending money to and from Brazil. “Doing business abroad can be confusing and intimidating,” says Barnett. “With our blog, readers can stay up to date and get the information they need in a concise format.”
Yet the blog is just one way that the Angélico Advogados is trying to help foreigners conduct business in Brazil. According to Barnett, the firm’s approach to helping international clients is different from most other Brazilian law firms. “The boutique nature of our law firm lends to higher quality service and greater attention to our clients’ needs.” Plus for many foreign clients, having an American lawyer like Barnett, with his past experience in cross-border business transactions, brings its own advantages. Greg Barnett works directly with the firm’s foreign clients and is responsible for the growth of the firm’s international practice.
Angélico Advogados is uniquely positioned to provide clients with greater access to the firm’s attorneys, an unsurpassed level of service, and a profound understanding of the Brazilian legal and business landscape.
