CFGS’ main practice is litigation across industries, jurisdictions and forums, representing clients before several courts and governmental agencies in Brazil.

Our partners have also distinguished themselves in the field of arbitration, representing clients before important local institutions (Brazil-Canada Chamber of Commerce – CCBC, FGV Conciliation and Arbitration Chamber, São Paulo Mediation and Arbitration Chamber (FIESP), Câmara de Arbitragem Empresarial – Brasil), as well as the International Chamber of Commerce – ICC.

Our partners have extensive experience in successfully handling complex business disputes in federal and state courts. Some of us also have practiced overseas, allowing us to bring a global perspective where necessary to best serve our clients. We have handled a wide range of cases, including: construction contracts; telecom services; oil and gas exploitation; gas distribution; energy generation and distribution; corporate acquisitions; financial services; swap agreements; product liability; shareholder actions; insolvency litigation; insurance and reinsurance; bank credit facilities; and numerous court disputes relating to arbitration.

Although we have worked on numerous high-stake cases, we also represent clients on medium- sized and smaller-scale cases.

Our substantial litigation experience informs how we prepare all of our cases and helps us win better settlements whenever it is in our clients’ best interests. Indeed, many of our cases have involved successful settlement out-of-court.
