About Us.
Amanda Pesciutti Duarte, partner of the Vaz de Almeida Business Law (Corporate Law and Legal Support for Businesses), was nominated by the yearbook «Análise Advocacia Mulher» as one of the most admired Women lawyers in the country.
Published on March 9, the ranking is based on the same statistical panel of the Directory «Análise Advocacia ― The Most Admired Law Firms and Lawyers in Brazil by the Largest Companies» for which we apply annually, and whose data were collected between June and September 2022.
Participating in the survey for the Directory are only the General counsels of the two thousand companies with the highest net revenues or net worth (in the case of financial institutions) with operations in the country, who are carefully approached in the form of a spontaneous non-stimulated survey, on which occasion they are invited to mention the name of the law firm they most admire, regardless of whether they use their services. The result is a unique panel of the legal services available in Brazil and the most qualified lawyers to provide them.
The «Análise Advocacia Mulher» initiative proposes a cutout of this panel, in order to highlight the women who play the leading role in the Brazilian legal practice.
Distinguished in two categories
Amanda received, once more, the double nomination of 2022: by economic sector ― Automotive and Auto Parts ―, and by technical expertise ― Business Law.
