In recent years, legal services worldwide have steadily grown in both breadth and depth. This progress reflects the dynamics of the market economy, which has felt the impact of globalization and of the digital age, and has become increasingly fast-paced, intense and, in certain cases, unpredictable.
Brazil has made notable strides during this period by building new institutional boundaries, including those of a legal nature. Now, it is essential for the law and its institutions to continue to adjust to this new context.
As a law firm, Mattos Filho was quick to adapt to the demands of this new scenario. We have captured the spirit of these ever-changing times and its trends, and we continue to seek solutions to meet the demands of our clients efficiently, accurately and creatively.
Our business activities have significantly grown in recent years. The excellence in our services and our innovative approach to the practice of law are attributes widely recognized by the market. We have fulfilled our goal of becoming a full service firm while achieving a more homogenous performance across all our practices. We have also consolidated and implemented our corporate governance following the latest legal trends for firms worldwide and setting a milestone for firms in Brazil.
The cornerstone of the firm’s strategy lies in our key features: the efficiency of our management model, the expansion and improvement in the quality of the services we offer our clients and our long-term vision which focuses on opportunity creation.
From an evolutionary perspective, we continually seek to strengthen already consolidated business practices, develop and boost certain areas according to the demands of our clients and review and incorporate new practices. Guided by these premises, in 2014 the firm welcomed eight new partners. A ninth partner joined our team of professionals in the first week of 2015.
In the forthcoming years, we will continue to pursue our strategic journey of growth by strengthening our organizational culture, investing in new areas and expanding across borders into foreign markets. We are an organization recognized for our innovative legal solutions, our flexibility as to market changes and our steadfast commitment to remain the firm of choice for our clients and professionals.
