The freight transportation and logistics industry reside in a field of legal uncertainty: the legislation is outdated and insufficient, and legal institutes that are necessary to stabilize legal relations do not have a clear legal framework (such as limitation and peremption); the Brazilian courts show little commitment to the harmonization of judicial decisions or uses and customs. Besides, Brazil’s judiciary is slow not allowing decisions to follow the market dynamics.
To handle such complex scenario, we have formed a team of lawyers familiar with international transport, logistics, foreign trade experienced in litigation and advisory needs of the sector.
Our professionals can assist air and maritime transport agents, NVOCC, OTM, importers and exporters and other foreign trade players. We act in a strategic and multidisciplinary approach, aligning legal, technical knowledge with the understanding of the client’s business. We think differently, propose creative solutions, always focusing on delivering excellence.
The practice is focused primarily on the prevention of disputes aiming at reducing risks and costs by building or reviewing internal policies and supporting clients’ decision-making. In litigation, we carry out specialized and tailor-made work, seeking increased visibility to proceedings that deal with sensitive issues to the sector, collaborating with the harmonization of judicial decisions.
