CASTRO, BARROS, SOBRAL, VIDIGAL, GOMES ADVOGADOS is one of the largest and most reputable law firms in Brazil, rendering services to clients located throughout the world.

The firm was founded in São Paulo, in the early 50’s, being among the first full service, corporate law firms to appear in Brazil. In 1974, it established an office in Rio de Janeiro, being among the first Brazilian law firms to have a presence in both of the most important economic centers in Brazil. Given the growing decentralization of Brazilian economic development, and the impact of the MERCOSUR Free trade area, an office in Porto Alegre, in southern Brazil, was established in 1992.

The firm has always had an important international presence. It has been established in Lisbon since 1980, and in Washington, DC, since 2000.  

Furthermore, as a member of BOMCHIL, CASTRO, GOODRICH, CLARO, AROSEMENA & ASOCIADOS, a network of Latin American law firms, the firm has associate law firms in virtually all of Latin America.

The firm has been very active in internet, information technology and e-commerce work, which involves the participation of most practice areas within the firm, such as corporate law, intellectual property, competition law, tax, labor, consumer protection, to name a few. The firm has represented both start up entrepreneurs and investors, being able to put together teams of attorneys capable of providing the services clients need combining quality and speed of delivery. Furthermore, the firm has been very active in litigating pioneer cases involving domain name registration and copyright violations.
