The ILN is proud to announce our latest firm of the month, KLA – Koury Lopes Advogados, Brazil!
KLA is a dynamic full-service law firm, established in 2002. What makes them different and places them among the most modern law firms in Brazil is their way of applying legal knowledge to the business of their clients. The firm works not only with transactional and complex operations, but also dedicates the same effort to daily matters, offering full time support. KLA aims to understand the business of their clients and respond with the necessary agility, clarity in communications and practicality. The firm tries constantly to anticipate relevant trends and novelties, aggregating value to their legal services. The partners participate or personally manage all steps of the work and do not distance themselves from their clients, since long-lasting relationships are part of the firm’s philosophy. The right professionals are allocated for each matter, with the purpose of obtaining maximum efficiency in the formation of teams dedicated to each client and matter, assuring effectiveness and cost control. A top level team of motivated professionals is located in its São Paulo and Brasília offices, many with academic and professional experience abroad.
