The idea of becoming a lawyer started in my life when I was 18 years old. I have been a lawyer since 2002, when I started my own law office, Bicalho Legal Consulting. I am Brazilian and I graduated in Law in 2002. I was a professor for some years in Brazilian law schools. After that, I became a lawyer in Portugal too and Master of Laws at USC in California in the USA.
Currently, I am fully focused on my work in Bicalho and TopSoccer, legal and financial advice for soccer players around the world.
Nowadays, we have branches in Brazil - Belo Horizonte/MG and São Paulo/SP, Coimbra/Portugal and Miami/USA. Our team provides international legal advice to some companies to do business in a safe way and support soccer players to protect their assets, avoid to pay unnecessary taxes and to plan their retirement.
I believe that the Law is the perfect tool for good business conduct. As said Cicero: “The safety of the people shall be the highest law."
