Who We Are

Felsberg Advogados is a full service law firm founded in 1970 and defined by its ability to combine experience, tradition and excellence with efficient, fast and focused service, offering innovative solutions in a constantly changing world.

The combination of individual, joint and complementary values, with a tradition established over five decades of service, means that we have a broad and all-encompassing vision that meets the current and future legal requirements of all our clients, from the biggest corporate groups to the freshest of startups.

This is what makes us unique, different and prepared.

Our History

Founded by Thomas Felsberg, the firm has always had an innovative spirit at the core of everything it does.

Long before we were recognized as pioneers in judicial restructuring, we were one of the first firms to advise on aviation financing and contribute to the development of project finance and venture capital in Brazil.

More recently, we inaugurated new practice areas such as fashion law, innovation and startups, intellectual property, life sciences, antitrust, compliance and white-collar crime. We also anticipated future demands with new fintech and payment systems as well as data protection and technology departments and a specialised gaming law team.

More than service providers, we are partners.

Social Responsibility

We are committed to encouraging social, cultural and educational projects.

Among the projects we support are Vaga Lume (creating and maintaining libraries in the Amazon), APAQ (treatment of burns victims), and AB2L (for the creation of dialogue among law firms and tech companies). Our fashion law team, in particular, devotes pro bono hours to two institutes in the fashion industry: Fashion Revolution (uniting the fashion industry in the way clothes are sourced, produced and consumed) and Instituto Alinha (connecting small workshops with designers and brands at fair prices and deadlines). Over the past two years, our legal professionals provided more than 500 pro bono hours.

Diversity

Talent does not come with a label. For this reason, we focus on selecting and rewarding the best minds, regardless of gender, color, social class, sexual or religious orientation. Respect for diversity is reflected in our values. Among our partners, 50% are women, and within our office as a whole, 57% are women. Salary levels for men and women are equal within each function. Healthcare benefits are extended to all spouses, regardless of sexual orientation.

DiversiFeA, our Committee of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion comprising partners, other fee-earners and staff, promotes regular initiatives and events for the well-being of all members of the firm.
