Sperling Advogados is once again recognized in 5 practices by The Legal 500 Latin America 2022

It is with great joy that we announce that our firm has been recognized by the 2022 edition of the international guide The Legal 500 as a leading firm in the tax litigation, tax advisory and tax customs, corporate, mergers and acquisitions and labor practice areas. Our associate Sofia Richter was nominated as Rising Star in the Corporate practice.

We cordially thank our clients for the trust placed in us and for the partnership and all our collaborators for the success achieved.

About the firm the guide’s editorial team comments:

‘A very organised law firm’ with ‘deep knowledge and experience’, Sperling Advogados has a strong focus on mid-market companies, including a large number of international corporations, which it advises on a range of transactional, non-transactional corporate and commercial matters. Recently, the corporate, M&A and contracts team has been particularly busy advising on corporate restructurings. The close collaboration among departments is another key feature, allowing the firm to cover corporate, commercial, tax, dispute resolution and labour law advice. A member of AB2L, the Brazilian Association of Lawtechs and Legaltechs, the firm utilises AI-based research tools and has launched an internal innovation lab for the discussion and implementation of improvements based on visual law and design thinking methodologies. Another notable initiative is the firm’s pro bono support to Mães Pela Diversidade, an NGO working with parents of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender children to support and promote the rights of the LGBTIQA+ community. Highly regarded partners Marcio Sperling and Felipe Garcia de Souza lead the team, which also includes associate Sofia Richter.
