Who's Who Legal Labour, Employment & Benefits

At age 25, Manuela Lourenção, together with Thiago Trung, founded Trung e Lourenção Advogados.

Founded in 2008, the firm provides impartial labour-related legal services and has been rising as a sophisticated and independent alternative to the big law firms for clients. Respect for its professionals, simplicity, technical integrity and commitment to justice are a few of its principles. The firm serves both employees and companies as a way to maintain the excellence in whichever side it is litigating and has been partnering with several law firms that need labour law support for their final clients.

Ms Lourenção has a bachelor’s degree in legal sciences from the University of São Paulo Law School (2006) and a master's degree in labour law from the same university (2011), specialising in labour procedure. At the firm, she leads the litigation and union’s negotiation area, with a focus on high-value and strategic individual actions. She has vast experience in dealing with labour unions at all levels of negotiations, from national employers' assemblies to collective agreements for specific purposes. Her experience is also used in the consulting area of the firm, usually providing insights related to lawsuits risks during M&A due diligences or devising preventive strategies to avoid future lawsuits and administrative investigations. She has relevant experience among the telecom and technology sector.

Manuela was admitted to the Brazilian Bar Association, São Paulo chapter (OAB/SP), in 2006. Her native language is Portuguese, she is fluent in English and communicates well in Spanish and Italian.

WWL says: Manuela Lourenção is a responsive and technically excellent lawyer who "has a unique ability to quickly understand the issues under dispute and provide precise and strong advice".
