I must say that I had a wonderful time in Sao Paulo.
The training was wonderful and I learnt a lot. Lawyers in Anglo-Saxon countries say that the English language is a tool of trade yet so many don't use it effectively. The training in Sao Paulo equipped with the necessary skills to use English legal writing to be more effective communicator.

For sure, everybody enjoyed the training. It was very nice to hear a native speaker, specially one with such high legal drafting techniques

Excellent course. I recommend the training 'Contract Drafting and Legal Writing'. It gave to me the chance to understand the need of Plain Legal English in contracts as a way to mitigate ambiguity or misinterpretation of a clause. Also the training clarified the context in which Anglo-Saxon Legal System is inserted, since the Brazilian Legal System is in a different one.
