ABOUT US

At Reale Advogados Associados, we provide legal services in the criminal law area, particularly in the business area. Our highly-focused lawyers advise and represent businesses and theirmanagement – whether they are under investigation or the victims of crime.

 

We defend our clients while they are under police investigation or the subject of task force operations conducted by the federal and state police.

 

We likewise defend our clients when they are criminally prosecuted in court. We litigate in state and federal courts at the trial, appellate and Supreme Court levels.

 

We also provide preventive and strategic consulting to help our clients avoid and resolve criminal law problems. These services include organizing and monitoring criminal compliance programs to help our clients avoid activities that lead to potential criminal law issues. This service truly makes us stand out.

 

In addition to our litigation and consulting services in business-related criminal law, the partners in our law firm also offer legal opinions on various subjects in the economic criminal law area. Professor Eduardo Reale Ferrari has a particularly strong legal opinion practice.

 

At Reale Advogados Associados, we tailor our legal services to the specific needs of each company and individual we represent. The personal relationship between attorney and client is of primary importance to us, and our credibility is based on the prudent and thoughtful advice we give each client.
