The founding partners, the Brazilian Carlos Nicodemos and the Dutchman Frans Nederstigt, met in 1993 during the re-democratization of Brazil, after the promulgation of the 1988 Federal Constitution, both advocating in the defense of Human Rights, especially in the area of children’s rights.
Carlos Nicodemos and Frans Nederstigt always have seen the Law as a tool for legal empowerment and the full exercise of citizens’ rights, considering that literally “ad vogar” (speaking on behalf) is giving voice to a person – a client – while facing injustices.
The law firm NN Advogados Associados was founded in 2002 based on that vision and currently provides a highly qualified legal staff, dedicating itself to the practice of law specializing in Family Law and the Rights of the Child both nationally and internationally and also in the areas Civil Law, Penal Law, Corporate Law, Labor Law and Third Sector and legal representation of foreigners in Brazil.
