Law Link office

With offices in the two major cities of Brazil, Zaroni Advogados has established itself as a benchmark in providing excellent legal services for Brazilian companies and, especially, foreign companies doing business in this country. Since its foundation, this law firm has been conquering qualified niches in the increasingly competitive and demanding domestic market, without losing sight of the prospect of new challenges, mainly in the international scenario.
Attentive to the strengthening of a customized service model, focused on the clients’ objectives, we identify demands starting from the in-depth knowledge of their businesses. The search for the understanding of the best ways to manage the affairs of the companies served by our staff is one of the differentials that have been ensuring the success of our activities. In this sense, by giving priority to a relationship that aims the proximity, we are able to find answers and solutions that often exceed expectations and reinforce our attitude with regard to the excellence of the services we offer. This responsiveness capability arose from the identification of the difficulties inherent in the process that entrepreneurs go through when they decide to settle in another country.
Since we prioritize the long-term vision and act in a planned manner, we also believe that the experience gained in serving foreign companies entitles us to look for new and promising horizons beyond our borders.
Although our offices are located in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, our work has a national coverage.
