The Firm

Our firm started its activities in 1990, as a boutique specializing in the tax area. Our practice, strongly focused in the beginning, was guided by the extensive experience of the founding partners in this area, in particular of José Maurício Machado, who had until then acted as partner in charge of the tax department of a major international consulting and auditing company.

The growth of our firm has always been supported by and attuned to the needs of our clients; it was not a goal in itself, but rather a natural consequence of our work. We believe that it is better to have the best team rather than the largest one.

Since the formation of the firm, we set as our directive to “just do what we excel at”. Our values, true guidelines, have always been quality with agility, unconditional dedication and outstanding assistance to clients. These are values that we commit to every day and that guide our professional performance.

We have offices in São Paulo (main office), Rio de Janeiro and Brasília and also rely on correspondent law firms throughout Brazil, which allow us to meet our clients’ needs in all states.

Because of our intense international practice, we are the only Brazilian law firm to be part of both WTS Global and LATAXNET - Latin American Tax and Legal Network. WTS Global is an international network of firms with focus in the tax area, recognized as one of the global leaders in this area and present in more than one hundred countries. Lataxnet, of which we are co-founders and managers, is an alliance with eighteen top-notch firms, covering the whole Latin America. Our active participation in these networks and the strong relationships we have maintained for 25 years with international law firms, leaders in their markets, place Machado Associados in a highly privileged position to conduct international transactions.

Because of our hard work and dedication, we enjoy a solid reputation and credibility, not only among our clients, but also before our peers. We have been repeatedly recognized by the most respected specialized publications, such as Análise Advocacia, Chambers & Partners, IFLR 1000, International Tax Review - Euromoney, Latin Lawyer and The Legal 500 as one of the best law firms in Brazil in the Tax, Tax Litigation, Corporate, Contracts, M&A, and Labor/ Employment Taxes areas.

Our firm is driven and motivated by the continuous desire to improve, so that we are able to offer the best to our clients and assist them in achieving their business goals.
