We are a Law Office acting in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil, for more than 30 years.

We are 15 lawyers from several fields of Law, divided into four departments: Intellectual Property, Company Law, Civil Law and Labor Law. Our mission is to facilitate business interchanges between Brazil and Japan, by helping Japanese companies and government branches in their relations with Brazil. Our principles are assisting the needs of our clients with efficiency, agility and competence.
We have several lawyers who are fluent in Japanese, which makes the daily contact with our clients in Japan easier. Also, we have a team of translators who are native Japanese speakers fluent in Portuguese, guaranteeing a quick translation of documents and messages. Dr. Ninomiya is a registered sworn translator, being able to make official translations from both English and Japanese to Portuguese, which makes it quicker to obtain official document translations (official translations are often sought by Brazilian authorities). We can make and analyze documents in both Japanese and English, besides Portuguese. We have a digital process management system, which allows us to thoroughly monitor all cases under our office's responsibility. We have the credibility of an office that has been acting for more than 30 years in the business interchange between Japan and Brazil.
We are at the disposal of Japanese companies and offices that wish to initiate or already have business in Brazil.
