Representative matters and clients

- Represents several multinational companies in different sectors, handling their employment needs in the Americas (every Latin American jurisdiction and Canada), as well as Europe.

- Performed a very complex comparative study for multinational companies in different sectors regarding the return to work post-pandemic, which involved over 30 countries all over the world.

- Represented a large airline company with the implementation of various legal measures to deal with the reduction in their business activities as a result of COVID-19, including collective negotiation, suspension of employment agreements and reduction of pay.

- Represented a large airline company in an unprecedented dispute before the Brazilian Superior Court regarding the cumulative payment of hazardous conditions of work allowance and dangerous conditions of work allowances. The case was of paramount importance for the client, as it affected it at a large scale. But, it is also worth noting that this discussion had been ongoing for many years and affected several other employers in Brazil across different industries.

- Represented a major global technology company before the labour court in a sensitive case involving outsourced content reviewers. The case was extremely relevant and sensitive for the client, but also because they may set a precedent for other similar cases that are often being discussed in national courts.
