“Demystifying the U.S. Jury Trial” Program Presented in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, Brazil


The firm recently conducted U.S.-style mock jury trial programs in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, Brazil. The events were attended by approximately 250 general counsels, CEOs, and business leaders from top Brazilian companies, including Banco Bradesco, Ultrapar Participações, BTG Pactual, and Chevron Brazil. The events were co-sponsored by Federação das Indústrias do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (FIRJAN) and Confederação Nacional da Indústria (CNI). As far as the firm is aware, these were the first ever U.S.-style mock jury trials to be presented in Brazil. These programs in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo follow on the heels of the firm’s successful mock jury trials in Tokyo, Tel Aviv, Beijing, Taipei, Seoul, and Zurich. The firm will present a mock jury program in Mexico City this fall.
