Management Labour & Employment Marketplace Analysis


Unemployment in Brazil is at a historically low level, yet the country still lacks the necessary skilled workers required for its industries. Automakers, construction firms and energy companies are all becoming increasingly reliant on foreign workers. President Rousseff has set goals to boost the number of work-ready Brazilians, requiring employers and local and state leaders to collaborate to anticipate and coordinate their staffing needs. We identify 15 leading individuals practising in this field.

At Veirano Advogados, three lawyers are highly recommended. José Carlos Wahle is the national leader for the firm’s labour group and is also a “very active” litigator. He boasts extensive industry knowledge and advises on human resources issues, compensation, terminations, employee relocation and transfer and confidentiality and non-compete issues. He is “highly skilled”. Isa Soter da Silveira provides “effective and solutions-oriented labour law advice” to international and Brazilian companies doing business in the country. Luiz Guilherme Migliora counsels clients on labour issues and represents them in litigation. He is praised for his “steadfast approach”.
