Our Firm

Teixeira, Martins & Advogados operates throughout Brazil, within the judicial, arbitral, administrative and legal advisory scopes, providing tailor-made services in several areas of the Law.

Founded more than 40 years ago, Teixeira Martins & Advogados is currently formed by Roberto Teixeira, Valeska Teixeira Zanin Martins, Larissa Teixeira Quattrini and Cristiano Zanin Martins, in addition to a team of carefully selected lawyers.

Notably combative, Teixeira, Martins & Advogados stands out for its intense dedication to the actions it engages in. Therefore, it is not by chance that it has placed its mark on Brazilian law, by taking to Court theses that after being heard were integrated to the Brazilian legal system. Such was the case of the Judicial Reorganization Law, whose adoption was also made feasible due to the reasoning constructed by Teixeira, Martins & Advogados.
