How Brazilian Law Firms Compare to their Pairs in the US

brazilian law firm, law office in brazil

Brazilian follows Civil Law while the US follows Common law. In addition to the differences coming from these two different legal systems, firms also differ in how they are created, regulated, and advertised.

Law firms can be formed in Brazil only after authorization from the Bar authority. However, in the US, law firms are based on general business entities such as LLPs and PLLCs.

Most Brazilian attorneys are employed in small law firms with up to 5 attorneys. American law firms, on the other hand, are considerably larger in size.

Oliveira Lawyers x Multinational Law Firms

Law firms operating in multiple countries often have complex structures involving multiple partnerships, particularly in jurisdictions such as Brazil, which restrict the operation of foreign law firms in the country.

When you hire a multinational law firm to handle your needs in Brazil, you end up paying unnecessarily high legal fees. Oliveira Lawyers work with competitive rates due to its lean and agile structure.

For institutional clients in the US and Europe, we provide a complimentary consultation to address how we can help you with your needs in Brazil.

The legal market in Brazil is regulated by the OAB – Ordem dos Advogados no Brasil (Council of Lawyers in Brazil). OAB is the top authority for legal service in the country, so OAB regulates how Brazilian law firms do business. Aside from the National Council, there is one council for each Brazilian state plus many regional councils throughout the country.

Regulation in Brazil

Curiously, while many law firms in Brazil have been fighting for less regulation for the profession, some segments in the US are looking for the opposite, as one can see in this article from Anthony Davis published in “The American Lawyer”: A New Approach to Law Firm Regulation, which preachers for a national, tighter regulation “in order to strengthen the US firms to be better capable of competing with international law firms".
