Who We Are

The Law Office of José Yunes e Associados combines years of experience and constant renewal to offer you the best legal services in a wide range of areas of the Law.



José Yunes has a degree from the Law School of the University of São Paulo. In 1961, he founded the law office José Yunes e Associados, quickly becoming one of the most respected in the country, the result of the ethics and principles guiding his work on behalf of his clients.
The success he attained propelled José Yunes into the public life, which he represented with distinction and dignity at both state and federal levels. It is important to highlight his role in the elaboration of the Federal Constitution and the Consumer Defense Code.
Upon fulfilling his parliamentary mission, becoming an indelible part of the history of re-democratization in the country and culminating in the restitution of the rule of law, José Yunes once again dedicated himself wholly to practicing law, beginning a new phase geared towards various areas of practice.


Today, as uncertainty increases globally, the globalizing world demands swift response on a political, social, environmental and economical level, from instruments capable of providing a ready answer within the legal scope. These instruments must provide support to the legitimate interests of competitive demand, responsible for maintaining the balance between different forces within society.
With that goal in mind, our office has gathered a competent team of professionals active in the most diverse areas of Law, seeking to provide qualified services within the scope of the law. We offer services in administrative, preventive and judicial law, thus seeking to protect the legitimate interests of those we represent.
To better serve our clients, our new office has cutting-edge installations, connecting our members to an efficient system of in-house and external information, pertinent to their work.


The team is continuously reviewing and updating their knowledge through research, and by attending courses, seminars and lectures in their respective areas of practice.
