Andersen Global Adds Legal Services in Brazil
Andersen Global continues its growth and robust presence within the Latin American region with the addition of Lotti e Araujo, a law firm with offices in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. Lotti’s legal practice, which includes about 30 attorneys and is led by Managing Director Rogério Araújo, will complement the existing Andersen team in Brazil.
“South America continues to be a significant market for the firm, and Lotti is an excellent fit to our expansion plans in the region. The addition gives us full service legal capabilities,” remarked Global Chairman and Andersen LLC CEO, Mark Vorsatz. “Additionally, several of the Lotti partners previously worked at Arthur Andersen in the legal practice in Brazil and share our values of stewardship, transparency, and best-in-class service.”
Lotti e Araujo provides legal services in several areas of corporate law, with an expertise in the tax litigation, civil, labor, and corporate sectors. The firm specializes in litigation, administrative law, and advisory services, such as foreign investments, commercial, international trade, intellectual property, real estate management, labor law, and sports law.
“Together, along with the existing tax practice in Brazil, we will be able to increase our service offerings for our clients,” said Rogério. “We pride ourselves on providing high quality legal services, and working with the team at Andersen will help us deliver more extensive and quality coverage internationally.”
