Labor Law Print

Brazil is still the country with the highest number of labor lawsuits in the world. The laws that govern Labor Law are broad, which means companies and business people need to be constantly up to speed on the most modern interpretations of the courts on a national level.

Nelson Wilians & Advogados Associados provides assistance to companies in the area of labor law, both in litigation and in an advisory/preventive capacity, ensuring the correct application of individual and collective labor legislation.

Due to the firm’s multidisciplinary approach, our work is marked by its integration with other areas of law, such as civil, taxation and corporate, led by our highly-qualified staff who are prepared to provide all types of legal assistance in a personalized manner.

The development of a procedural strategy customized by the Labor Litigation Team for each case is a feature that brings significant and positive benefits to clients, notably because it allows for the identification of focal points that contribute to and increase the company’s labor liability.

Similarly, we work along with companies in a preventive capacity, promoting many benefits such as a reduction in the cost of labor enforcements, adjustment and compliance in the labor/business structure for employees.
