Founded in 1967, Azevedo Sette Advogados began its work inspired by the desire of the late Mr. Orlando Rodrigues Sette to implement a solid legal structure in the city of Belo Horizonte, State of Minas Gerais.
With the entry of Mr. Ordélio Azevedo Sette, what was only a desire was turned into reality with a true law firm, and soon gained quite some repute on the national market, as other offices were gradually opened throughout Brazil.
Along four decades of existence, Azevedo Sette Advogados grew and transformed according to its clients' needs and now is totally adapted to the global economic scenario, which is characteristic for opening and integrating new markets. The Firm currently is part of the legal elite in Brazil and practices internationally.
Today, Azevedo Sette Advogados has set up six firms in the major industrial, economic, and political poles of Brazil. In addition to the Belo Horizonte office, Azevedo Sette has offices in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Vitória, Brasília and Goiânia. It also maintains correspondents in all the largest cities and capitals of Brazil, and has support firms in North America, Europe, Asia, and South America.
Azevedo Sette Advogados is currently considered one of the ten largest law firms in Latin American, according to surveys and listings from the International Guide on Law Firms "Latin Lawyer 250", published by the "Law Business Research" magazine.
