At a time when law firms around the world are shunning office space and instructing lawyers to work remotely, Brazilian firm Mattos Filho, Veiga Filho, Marrey Jr. e Quiroga Advogados is planning to open a full-service office in the city of Campinas, in southeastern Brazil.

Senior partners João Marcos Colussi and Vilma Toshie Kutomi will relocate from headquarters in the city of São Paulo to direct a team of five lawyers in the technology and industrial hub. Colussi’s decades-long practice at the firm has focused on tax, while Kutomi’s area of expertise is labor, employment and executive compensation.
