FELSBERG ADVOGADOS cooperates with the ‘Dorina Nowill Institute for the Blind’. The firm helps by making a weekly donation of waste paper. The paper is turned into pulp and donated to the organization for recycling, and it is then converted into financial resources to support its various projects.

FELSBERG ADVOGADOS also supports the ‘Américas Amigas Association’, an organization which was inspired by Ambassador Barbara Sobel and founded in 2009. The Association brings together Brazilian and American volunteers and community leaders who are dedicated to programs and fund-raising for hospitals and health institutions in Brazil that are working towards the early diagnosis of breast cancer. The firm assisted in the creation of the association and continues to provide legal advice.
