Our differential

In 2003, Cepeda Advogados was conceived by its founding partners to provide distinguished legal advice.

Given that most of its partners came from the financial and capital markets, where they practiced as with a focus on assisting with the legal needs inherent to Asset Management activities and the Investment Fund industry, the firm set two permanent objectives, which are intensively pursued from the outset: to do things differently and to do them better.


It is our choice not to have every single practice area so that we can be the benchmark in what we do.
