It is with great pleasure that Duarte Garcia, Serra Netto e Terra - Sociedade de Advogados announces that the new partner, Carolina da Silva Leme, and associate Felipe de Almeida Andreassi have joined our Compliance and White Collar practice.
"Dr. Carolina has an enviable track record, with extensive experience in some of the most renowned law firms in Brazil, as well as important degrees from select local and international educational institutions, so she will undoubtedly be able to meet all our clients' needs in her practice areas with mastery," says Guilherme Terra, partner in the Real Estate practice.
In addition to the new partner, the firm is now joined by associate Felipe de Almeida Andreassi, a law enthusiast: "I have always seen law as a tool for transforming the individual, as well as society as a whole. White-collar and Compliance, therefore, were the paths I chose for this transformation to be exercised through the correct application of the law and the guarantee of rights," says Andreassi.
With over 10 years experience in the area, the new partner comments: "I decided to study law when I was very young and my inclination has always been towards White-collar. At the start of my degree, I thought I'd be applying to public exams. In my third year, I joined an internship program at a renowned law firm that only deals with criminal cases and I fell in love with law. From then on, I knew for sure that I wanted to pursue a career as a lawyer."
"Dr. Carolina's integration and total philosophical compatibility with Duarte Garcia were immediate, with clear synergy and, consequently, total conditions for significant joint growth, with direct and immediate benefits for our clients," says Guilherme Terra.
Carolina is enthusiastic about her new professional challenge, now as a partner of the firm: "The invitation to join the Duarte Garcia team couldn't have pleased me more. Expectations are high, both for my personal and professional growth, as well as for adding new expertise to the firm, with an autonomous area of Criminal Law and Compliance, which will enable specialized advisory services for our clients."
