Dispute Resolution

Aroeira Salles has a broad disputes practice providing full support across a range of areas. We have extensive experience representing our clients in leading cases including in the Supreme Federal Court and Superior Court of Justice in Brazil.

The firm has particular expertise in relation to disputes in the construction and infrastructure sector. During a project, unexpected events, variations, actions of other parties and points of contractual interpretation can generate conflict. Control institutions may also question the validity or economicity of a contract or claim that a project is in breach of applicable laws and regulations.


We have extensive experience representing our clients in administrative and judicial proceedings as well as in alternative methods of dispute resolution which are being used increasingly in Brazil such as arbitration, mediation and dispute boards.

We also advise clients in relation to proceedings overseas together with local counsel, for example, in relation to English High Court proceedings and arbitrations in New York.
