Driving transformation beyond legal services

More than simply being a law firm, we strive to be an important business partner, capable of showing our stakeholders new paths to follow and creating lasting and trusting relationships.

In 2022, we arrive at a very special moment for Mattos Filho – the firm’s 30th anniversary. We have remained constantly active and inquisitive all throughout this journey, questioning and challenging traditions, working to practice law in different ways that impact the market, impact society, and usher in the new.

During this period, we have undergone several important phases of transformation and evolution. We have listened to our clients and our professionals, taking their suggestions and ideas into account to propose ever more customized solutions. Seeing these possibilities helps us continue thinking of new, more efficient and relevant models.

Our deeply ingrained collaborative culture and values have been fundamental to our position as a leading firm in the Brazilian legal market. In the midst of the pandemic over the last two years, these characteristics have stood out more than ever, allowing us to give the companies that have come to us during this challenging period the peace of mind to move forward with their business.

Moreover, the firm has harnessed its entrepreneurial spirit, refusing to become complacent. We identified specific areas we needed to expand, increasing the number of professionals to continue providing the outstanding service we have become known for.

Yet more than simply being a law firm, we strive to be an important business partner, capable of showing our stakeholders new paths to follow and creating lasting and trusting relationships.

 

We have drawn the conclusion that practicing law is a means to achieve our purpose, an important tool for overcoming barriers and positively impacting everyone around us. We want to lead by example, inspiring new attitudes and transformation within the legal sector in search of greater social equity and justice.

We also place the utmost importance on taking care of our people. For us, humanized management and a flexible environment that prioritizes well-being are synonymous with personal development and high performance.

2021 was also marked by our preparations to commemorate the three decades of our firm’s existence. This important milestone has pushed us to take a closer look at all we have achieved to date, and the firm we want to be from now on. In pausing to reflect, we asked ourselves: what role do we play in society? What impact do we want to make on the world of business?

We want to lead by example, inspiring new attitudes and transformation within the legal sector in search of greater social equity and justice.

A clear purpose is what really drives people in their relationships with organizations, society, and the world. As such, we understand our duty to give back to society and contribute to its progress.

In this sense, I would like to acknowledge our professionals. They have wisely dealt with adverse situations, often in the face of new situations and conditions that have required them to adapt quickly. Their dedication to realizing our purpose and their commitment to excellence drive our growth and contribute to generating new business.

I would also like to extend my thanks to our clients and business partners. It is you who give us the confidence and motivation to continue growing and exceeding expectations.

These first 30 years are just the beginning. Together, we will move forward in search of new paths, inspiring other people and businesses to also drive transformation. Bring on the next 30!
