About Us: Oliveira Lawyers

Our Vision

Oliveira Lawyers is a law firm founded by Brazilian lawyers specializing in representing foreign individuals and companies with interests in Brazil. We work hard to be known as the main law firm dedicated exclusively to serving foreign clients in Brazil. Our professionals are truly fluent in English and Portuguese, and we operate with the same service standards you would experience in countries such as the US and the UK.

Our Selective Approach

As a law firm specializing in key services for foreign clients, we only work with clients who can truly benefit from our services. We always evaluate first if we are a good match for your needs. If we accept work on your behalf, you will have our full attention and dedication to achieving your goals in Brazil.

Check our practices to know if we provide the service you are looking for. We strive to provide rough estimates when asked for. Answers to questions about your case, how things work in Brazil, and how we can help you are answered within a consultation that can be scheduled here.

The Ideal Match

We are a good match for clients who value their time and are looking for a one-stop solution for their problems. The fees we charge for our services translate into clear benefits to our clients:

1. Avoid losses

Brazil is not for beginners. There is plenty of bad deals and plain scams around. Getting a lawyer looking out for you at key points of your transaction will reduce the chances of severe losses.

2. Save money

Doing it the right way can save you money. When we assist our clients in real estate transactions, they save as much as 2% of their investment. These savings alone are worth dozens of thousands of dollars.

3. Peace of mind 

Things in Brazil things do not work like they do in your country. Having expert guidance for your key affairs is not a luxury – it is a must. Avoiding issues is much easier than fixing problems later on.

Not good matches

Those who speak Portuguese and have an extensive network in Brazil may be better off hiring local attorneys in Brazil, charging local fees. Our international presence and the quality of our attorneys require us to practice fees comparable to those charged in the US and other developed countries. 

No free consultations

Our firm does not offer free consultations. Free consultations are prohibited by the Brazilian Bar Association and are not offered by any reputable Brazilian firm or attorney.

Our Experience

Our attorneys have represented foreign parties in Brazil in hundreds of cross-border transactions and legal cases. Our experience with the representation of foreign citizens started in 2006 when Leonidas Oliveira, the late father of our managing partner Luciano Oliveira, joined forces with one of the leading law firms in California to work on a massive cross-border legal case. Since then, we have assisted clients from all continents with business and real estate acquisitions, investments in general, contracts, probates, and conflict resolution in Brazil.

The Value We Add

We offer a one-stop solution for your problems. Once we take you on board, we will guide you through the many challenges Brazil represent to foreign clients. We will steer you away from bad deals, scams, and nonsense. We will guide you to achieve your goals in the safest and fastest way possible. We will bring in other professionals such as bankers, accountants, realtors, translators, and others when needed.

Don’t want to waste time calling a bunch of people? Don’t want to learn how things work in Brazil the hard way? Don’t want to risk your money with legal providers who don’t understand your needs and background? We may be the right choice for you.

Camila Saunier

Rio de Janeiro Office

Our main office for real estate transactions and immigration services is located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Historically, Rio de Janeiro is the number one location for real estate acquisition when it comes to foreign buyers.

Sao Paulo Office

Our operational office is located in Sao Paulo, Brazil. From there, most of our attorneys and staff work hard to help you achieve your goals.

Dallas Office

Our satellite office in Dallas keeps us connected to the US market, where most of our clients come from. Our staff at this location holds certifications related to law and project management in addition to speaking native-level English. When you first contact our office, you will interact with our Dallas office, which will review your needs and decide if we are a good match for you and vice-versa.

Los Angeles Office

We have a second US satellite office in Los Angeles, California. This small office serves as a support for our team when visiting California to meet clients and partners. Although we don’t currently have a permanent staff at this location, we foresee that this will happen in the near future, given the number of clients we have on the West Coast.
