Social Responsibility

Social responsibility is in the soul of ASBZ and our team of professionals. The firm is a long-term supporter of cultural and social initiatives envisaging a new future and a positive impact on the lives of the Brazilian people. Currently, Make-A-Wish® Brasil and Human Rights Watch are assisted by the firm in legal matters.

Our firm advises Human Rights Watch on tax, labor and corporate advisory issues related to its internal administrative activities. Human Rights Watch is made up of roughly 400 staff members around the globe and is known for its accurate fact-finding, impartial reporting, effective use of media, and targeted advocacy, often in partnership with local human rights groups. Each year, Human Rights Watch publishes more than 100 reports and briefings on human rights conditions. With the leverage this brings, Human Rights Watch meets with governments, the United Nations, regional groups, financial institutions, and corporations to press for changes in policy and practice that promote human rights and justice around the world.

Make-A-Wish® Brasil is a non-profit organization with a network of volunteers working together to grant wishes of children and teenagers – from 3 to 18 years old – with life-threatening health problems. Founded in the United States 35 years ago and currently present in nearly 50 countries on five continents, it started to operate in Brazil in 2008. Since then, more than one thousand dreams have come true. The objective is to bring strength, joy and hope to children and their families and communities to help them cope with life’s difficulties. The organization’s head office in São Paulo is one of the 38 affiliates of Make-A-Wish® International, one of the world’s leading children’s charities.

ASBZ also supports the Pequeno Príncipe Complex, the largest exclusively pediatric hospital in the country. The complex is present in areas such as care, hospital humanization, teaching and research.
