Andersen Global is expanding its presence within the Latin American region with the addition of Lotti e Araujo, a law firm with offices in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

Excellent fit

Lotti’s legal practice, which includes about 30 attorneys and is led by Managing Director Rogério Araújo, will complement the existing Andersen Tax team in Brazil. Global Chairman and Andersen Tax LLC CEO, Mark Vorsatz, says ‘South America continues to be a significant market for the firm, and Lotti is an excellent fit to our expansion plans in the region. The addition gives us full service legal capabilities.’

Previous relationship

Mr Vorsatz explains that ‘several of the Lotti partners previously worked at Arthur Andersen in the legal practice in Brazil and share our values of stewardship, transparency, and best-in-class service.’ Lotti e Araujo provides legal services in several areas of corporate law, with an expertise in the tax litigation, civil, labor, and corporate sectors. The firm specializes in litigation, administrative law, and advisory services, such as foreign investments, commercial, international trade, intellectual property, real estate management, labour law, and sports law.
