About Us.
For the 2nd time, Amanda Pesciutti Duarte is listed by the Análise Advocacia annual ranking among the «Most Admired Lawyers by the Largest Companies in Brazil». The ranking also highlights Amanda Duarte, a partner at Corporate Vaz de Almeida, for her service to the Automotive Sector. A significant portion of the firm’s clients are players in the Automotive Chain, an extremely competitive ecosystem in which Amanda has been increasingly recognized.
In addition to being the «Most Admired Lawyer» in 2021 and 2023, Amanda was also listed in the Análise’s «Women Lawyers» ranking for this year (2023) and last year (2022). These special editions aim to value and give visibility to female lawyers who have excelled in the corporate legal market, an intensely competitive and challenging environment that Amanda undoubtedly navigates with confidence: when Amanda was first listed by the ranking, she received special recognition for being the youngest partner lawyer on the list nationwide.
The recognition of Vaz de Almeida Advogados’ excellence was also renewed by Análise Advocacia in 2023, including the firm, for the 8th time, in the «Most Admired by the Largest Companies in Brazil» list.
