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 in-house counselors 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.
To do things differently based on the in-depth knowledge of the industries in which the firm is active and the needs of its clients along with the qualification and specialization of its lawyers in order to propose innovative and distinguished legal solutions and answers.
To do things better through a relentless pursuit of excellence by providing clients with efficient services in terms of their contents and our response time.
To be CEPEDA is to be the market’s benchmark
After more than 18 years in the market, the firm is now solidified as the benchmark in the provision of legal advice to the Asset Management, Investment Fund and Private Equity industries in Brazil. The firm provides local and international clients with sophisticated, tailormade legal solutions of paramount excellence.
The firm currently comprises a multidisciplinary team of seasoned, qualified lawyers who are recognized by the main domestic and international legal rankings.
This successful track record has allowed CEPEDA to expand its practice to Estate Planning and Succession (including Family Law and Real Estate), Corporate Law and M&A, Strategic Litigation and Tax Law.
These practices have been included in the focus of the firm alongside full legal advice to the Asset Management, Investment Fund and Private Equity industries.
