In the labor advocacy in defense of the worker:

The firm has extensive experience in sectors and strategic activities, such as doctors, managers, outsourced workers and especially the rights related to bank workers, enhancing the repair of rights through the postulation and construction of relevant theses. The great differential of the office is the direct and personal performance of the members, because the service throughout the process including hearings, is performed only by lawyers of the team, since we do not outsource tasks. The focus on bank workers does not have a distinction of position or function, since we serve in an equal way from bank tellers, attendants, assistants, banking correspondents, analysts, and managers to the highest hierarchical levels of the institutions.
