Rodrigo Junqueira re-elected as managing partner of Lefosse

After three years as Lefosse’s managing partner, the lawyer and administrator Rodrigo Junqueira was re-elected and and begins his second term, now in effect until June 30, 2028.  This is a time of accelerated growth for the firm, which has seen a 50% increase in its total number of professionals over the last three years, totaling more than 600 people, and is projecting double-digit growth in revenue compared to last year. It also won over 2,000 new clients and expanded its operations by investing in the expansion of its headquarters in São Paulo, as well as opening new offices in Brasília and Rio de Janeiro.

In recent years, Lefosse has climbed the rankings and won more than 550 recognitions for its professionals and the performance of its 23 practices, as a result of its full-service strategy. Today, in addition to being a reference as a transactional powerhouse, having advised on more than BRL 400 billion in transactions with an impact on the national and international markets, Lefosse has strengthened its legal teams to offer clients a complete platform with expertise in the most diverse market sectors.

“We’ve grown a lot and in a very planned and structured way. We have invested in areas such as Energy, Infrastructure, Technology, Restructuring and Insolvency, Dispute Resolution, among others, and today we serve a new profile of client, who demands much more than mastery of legal issues, but, above all, fluency in the specifics of their sectors of activity, guaranteeing coverage of excellence from the technical and business perspectives,” says Rodrigo Junqueira, managing partner of Lefosse.

Lefosse has recently invested in a culture program that reflects the evolution and growth of the firm and lays the foundations for its objectives in the coming years. “This strategy guides our actions and boosts our presence in an environment of innovation and transformation,” explains Junqueira.

In order to better address the current demand and especially that of future generations in the job market, Lefosse has hired a data engineering team that works on measuring and monitoring the satisfaction indicators of the professionals in our office. The aim is to personalize the journey for each professional, taking into account their different profiles and career expectations.

“We are a business made up of people, who play a leading role in our growth and the quality of our deliveries. We are very attentive to our people,” says the managing partner.
