Mattos Filho partner leaves to form new firm in Brasília
24 January 2017
Marcos Joaquim Gonçalves Alves has left Mattos Filho to set up his own firm, MJ Alves & Burle Advogados e Consultores, taking several Mattos staff with him.
The new firm, which will focus on Brazil’s
ballooning government relations sector but will also do some
tax work, has three partners: Gonçalves Alves, Fernanda
de Albuquerque Maranhão Burle and Leandro Modesto. The
firm is based in Brasília, the capital of Brazil, and
home to the country's embattled government.
Gonçalves Alves was at Mattos Filho for 20 years,
specialising in corporate tax issues. The new firm remains on
good terms with Mattos Filho.
