Purpose, mission and commitments
Purpose: courage to demonstrate it is possible to provide the best service and to be better for the world
We are a high-performance firm, involved in the resolution of significant and important disputes, both nationally and internationally. However, we have a peculiar way of work: we understand we can provide high quality, best services, generating value to our clients without neglecting our internal atmosphere, our staff, the environment, our suppliers, and all our stakeholders.
Therefore, providing the best service does not suffice: We also want to be better FOR the world.
And for that, we have adopted a series of measures to positively impact society and the environment through our activities, and such measures constitute a public commitment assumed by WK Advogados.
We believe in the power and relevance of companies in transforming a more just, equitable and sustainable society.
Mission and commitments: Our law firm is focused on the resolution of complex disputes, including arbitration, court disputes, mediation and judicial reorganizations. Our aim is to solve disputes efficiently and ethically, becoming true partners to our clients.
In addition to the target of providing excellent high-performance services, it is our goal to become increasingly better FOR the world, through the adoption of a series of measures that seek to positively impact society and the environment.
As a result, we constantly work with the aim of achieving United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These practices, which are public commitments assumed by WK Advogados are:
