The Brazilian legal system has come a long way in the last few decades. Previously unheard of undertakings such as former presidents being prosecuted have come to pass in the last two decades. Consequently, the country’s legal system is considered among the most mature in the world, with many of its Supreme Court rulings being relied on as precedents in other countries’ courts. The growth and maturity of the Brazilian legal system are being driven by, among other things, a breed of younger and more ethical lawyers. One particular standout in this breed is Bruno Fagali. The founder and leader of Sao Paulo-based law firm, Fagali Advocacy has extensive experience in administrative law, anti-corruption law, ethics and compliance law.
Unsurprisingly, Bruno Fagali has an extensive and accomplished academic background. For his academic studies, he attended the Pontiace Catholic University of Sao Paulo where he graduated with a law degree. Later, for his post-graduate studies the University of Sao Paulo, graduating with a master’s degree in Law of the State, Administrative law, and Anti-Corruption Law. While these two degrees are enviable academic qualifications on their own, Bruno Fagali realized that improving as a lawyer went beyond the scope of these two programs. Consequently, he has over the years completed a few certificate courses on various aspects of law from institutions such as the Brazilian Society of Public Law.
In addition to running his law firm, Bruno Fagali also works as the corporate integrity manager at Nova/sb. He has over the last two years developed and helped maintain a corporate integrity plan for the large advertising firm. With most of Nova/sb’s work being government contracts, Fagali’s work is essential and highly appreciated.
Free time is a hard luxury to come by for a man of Bruno Fagali’s stature. However, when he does get any, he prefers to spend it with his family. Alternatively, he also enjoys traveling and is often eager to interact with new cultures and languages. Fortunately, his job also allows him to travel often. The fruits of his numerous travels are seen in his high cultural competency level – he currently speaks Portuguese, English, French, and Spanish.
