We are a young and ambitious law-firm, located in the beautiful Bairro Vila Nova Conceição in Sao Paulo.

We are providing first-class law services for clients from various segments. Since inception we had the opportunity to collect vast experience with companies in the Technology and Startup segment, accompanying them from their Seed Phase to Series A and B up to achieving growth and corporate status. This includes Brazilian national ventures as well as foreign clients who are expanding their businesses to Brazil.

Different to many other law-firms, we do have a very practical knowledge of the day-to-day of our clients, which we do apply and express in way we communicate and work with our clients.

We see ourselves as your internal legal department – without the cost of building such a department on your own. In several cases we even agree with our clients on “presence-days”, meaning that in certain days of the weeks (one of) our lawyers are present in our client’s offices in order to guarantee a higher accessibility as well as a better understanding of the day-to-day of our client’s business.

We simply accompany our clients in all law-related questions and don’t leave them alone. We are a pragmatic and strong partner that you want to have on your side in negotiations. A partner who is focusing on your interest and your safety.

Especially our foreign clients do often wonder about how complex the Brazilian administrative landscape is and how difficult it is to deal with it, but when they work with Lima & Associates this impression changes quickly, as we absorb all these complication so they can stay focused on their business.
