Brazilian Desk

Dunning Rievman & MacDonald represents clients in corporate, transactional, employment and dispute resolution matters with a connection to any Portuguese-speaking jurisdiction.  Our Brazilian Desk is led by Irene Ribeiro.

We represent Brazilian and Portuguese companies and individuals in their US landing and expansion.  Some of our attorneys are native Portuguese speakers with professional experience in Portuguese-speaking countries countries, bringing years of experience in civil law jurisdictions.  Because of this experience, we understand the challenges that Portuguese-speaking clients face when navigating the U.S. and international legal landscapes.

It is around this understanding that we have built our Portuguese-speaking practice.  We offer in-depth knowledge and experience on the cultural and economic differences between the different countries and between their respective legal systems.  Our background, which provides a unique understanding of factors that drive Brazilian and Portuguese-speaking clients, permits us not only to devise individualized, narrowly tailored solutions but also to achieve highly effective and cost-efficient client communications.

Where the representation calls for it, we cooperate with experienced local counsel in Portuguese-speaking jurisdictions, elsewhere in the U.S. and, generally, abroad to offer a one-stop-solution to meeting our clients’ every legal need.

We also have significant capabilities to help our clients resolve their legal needs in various other jurisdictions (see our Spanish Desk, French Desk and our Turkish Desk).
