Our history

The firm was founded in 2004 by colleagues of the Law School of PUC-SP University and, since 2008, Flávio Senra, Breno Vasconcelos and Celso Mannrich (from left to right in the picture), have been the managing partners of the firm.

In 2012, as a result of the growing demand from our clients, we strengthened our presence in the State of Minas Gerais by opening an office in the city of Uberaba, in partnership with Gilberto Vasconcelos.

The year of 2013 was a landmark in our history as Professor Nelson Mannrich, with his team, joined the firm to develop our labor practice, which today is coordinated by him jointly with Celso Mannrich, Fábio Lima and Roberto Rossetti.

In that same year, Daniel Gomes joined the firm to work in cooperation with Flávio Senra in our real estate practice.

Together with new leaders, as Cristiane Pires (litigation and dispute resolution) and Priscila Cezario (labor and employment), and other extremely dedicated professionals, all our team is committed to fostering the firm’s core values.

Each step in this history, whether right or wrong, has helped to shape the firm of today: open-minded, ethical, participative and willing to make a difference.
