Society
Azevedo Brandão & Associados (ABA), founded in 2000, is a boutique office focused on the Client. It was born out of a joint effort of several Lawyers who, after isolated practice, formed a partnership and today, fruit of 25 years of practicing Law, contribute to its growth and its national and international recognition.

We are more than legal services providers, we are true partner of our Clients, increasing mutual gains and enrichment. Our mission is to take care of our Clients, always trying to exceed everyone's expectations: Employees, Clients and Partners.
