  • International firms

    Even though there are now loads of international firms moving into Sao Paulo, the four of five that are already successful there will remain dominant.

    Simpson Thacher and CC will not be threatened by smaller second tier firms that won’t be able to invest the resources to be there through thick and thin. While Brazil is economically strong at the moment, it won’t always be that way. What will happen to the smaller firms then?

  • Language is crucial

    From my experience there are relatively few firms that have language skills to be able to work effectively in Brazil. It takes more than just getting by in Portuguese. You have to be able to work closely with clients and that takes a deeper understanding of language and cultural nuances.
