Luis Rogerio Farinelli

Director of the Board of WTS Global, Partner of Machado Associados

I am one of the leading partners of the Direct Tax and International Taxation areas of Machado Associados.

Our firm started its activities in 1990 as a boutique specializing in the tax area. Currently, we have offices in São Paulo (main office), Rio de Janeiro and Brasília, and also rely on correspondent law firms throughout Brazil.

Our firm’s growth has always been supported by and attuned to the needs of our clients. It was not a goal, but rather a natural consequence of our work. We believe that it is better to have the best team rather than the largest one.

We have been repeatedly recognized by the most respected specialized publications, such as Análise Advocacia, Chambers & Partners, IFLR 1000, International Tax Review – Euromoney, Latin Lawyer, and The Legal 500 as one of the best law firms in Brazil in Tax, Tax Litigation, Corporate, Contracts, M&A, and Labour/ Employment Tax areas.

I am specialized in tax matters with emphasis on income and similar taxes, mergers & acquisitions, foreign investments, corporate reorganizations, and transfer pricing.

Also, I have been nominated as a leading tax attorney in relevant publications, such as Análise Editorial (Brazil), Chambers and Partners Global, Chambers and Partners Latin America, Who’s Who Legal, The Legal 500 Latin America, LACCA and Leaders League, and nominated by International Tax Review (Euromoney) for the award "Americas Transfer Pricing Practice Leader of The Year", in 2016 and 2017 (NY).

As a co-founder of LATAXNET, a network of 19 prestigious law firms in Latin America, I helped pave the way for today’s close cooperation between WTS Global and LATAXNET.

My motto for WTS Global: Good humour gives the company wings.
