Excellent news for our Law students: An agreement betweenInsper and Pinheiro Neto Advogados, one of the most traditional Brazilian law firms, will provide academic support to our students.

The goal is to educate lawyers capable of mediating dialogues and combining skills and knowledge to compose and lead multidisciplinary teams.

Our students will be able to interact with a renowned professional who, besides having solid technical credentials and a respected track record in corporate law, is a reference point in people and business management.”
“We are very pleased with this beginning of a partnershipand sure that this is just the starting point of a long relationship between the two institutions,” says Alexandre Bertoldi, managing partner and member of the Pinheiro Neto Advogados Steering Committee.
