The firm stands out for its substantial performance in national and international arbitrations, involving issues of civil and business law of the broadest scope. Furthermore, it acts in the mediation of conflicts in the commercial, family and Agribusiness areas, helping the parties to reach an agreement.

Alexandre Raposo Advogados Associados represents clients in arbitrations in Brazil and abroad, both institutional and ad hoc, in disputes related to civil law, commercial law, corporate law, consumer law, family law and succession, among other matters. The practice often occurs through working in partnership with another law firm.


Our contentious lawyers provide strategic advice based on research on cross-border issues. We are frequently consulted by our clients on litigation and legal risks and, where appropriate, on the business and reputational risks involved in a given action plan.

We are always ready to go to trial. We have extensive experience in commercial litigation matters of substantive and procedural complexity.

However, one of our fundamental objectives is to prevent our clients from getting involved in long disputes and most of the advice we provide is of a preventive nature.

We believe in arbitration as an appropriate form of dispute resolution and we see it in increasing use, especially given the problems of backlog of cases faced by the Brazilian judicial system.

– Bank and corporate litigation and arbitration;

– Debt collection and enforcement;

– Civil and commercial litigation and arbitration;

– Infrastructure litigation and arbitration;

– Restructuring & Insolvency Litigation;
