What has been the highlight of your practice over the past 12 months?

In addition to fantastic projects involving family governance and relocation inbound and outbound out of Brazil, I founded Humberto Sanches e Associados to be the leading private client firm in Brazil. My whole team joined me and I brought in other amazing lawyers. We hope to be a truly independent firm focusing on private client matters.

How did you get into private client?

Around twenty years ago, I left New York where I focused on M&A and private equity to move back to Brazil and started to service those clients’ private structures. Being the trusted advisor in private wealth is very fulfilling – much more than M&A.

What advice would you give rising stars/new lawyers in the private client world?

Be resilient! The world is changing fast and several challenges are coming ahead. Keep up to date with your knowledge.

What is your favourite quote?

“Keep your eyes on the stars and your feet on the ground.” Theodore Roosevelt

Do you have any outside interests or hobbies?

I enjoy marathons – and wine!

When the restaurants reopen, where would you like to go?

Adega Santiago, São Paulo – a Portuguese/Spanish tapas bar. It is great to go with friends.
