Areas of practice

The focus of Weigand & Silva Advogados is acting in areas of Business Law in which the firm has considerable legal experience within the administrative, judicial, litigation and advisory spheres, as follows:

 

Entrepreneurs, are your companies ready for the new Labor Rules?

 

The Labor Reform, in effect as from November 2017, amended more than 100 articles of the Consolidated Labor Laws (CLT), substantially transforming the relation of companies with their employees and the respective unions representing professional categories.

 

Such changes demand extreme care, in particular, during this transition period.

 

To reduce risks of labor liabilities, likely to cause substantial losses to companies, Weigand & Silva Advogados may accurately assess the changes resulting from the new law, according to reality and to the daily activities of each company, seeking solutions and alternatives for appropriate adjustment to the new rules.
