Eversheds Sutherland FCB confirm Dirce Rente as new partner

Eversheds Sutherland FCB strengthens its position in the domestic and international market with the establishment of a new department of Criminal, Regulatory, and Compliance law. Dirce Rente joins the firm as partner, starting in September 2023 and will be coordinating the new area for the firm.

With over 15 years of experience, with a special focus on economic and cross-border criminality, Rente has built her professional career at PLMJ and has been recognised by various international directories and publications as a standout in the new generation of lawyers. She has accumulated experience in regulatory law and advising national and international companies in the Compliance field. She is a member of the Board of Directors of the Penal Forum – Association of Penal Lawyers and a member of the Legal Experts Advisory Panel of Fair Trials International.

According to Rodrigo Almeida Dias, co-managing partner of Eversheds Sutherland FCB, “The establishment of a separate department of Criminal, Regulatory, and Compliance law had been on our office’s horizon for some time, so we enthusiastically welcome the opportunity to have Dirce join us. We are deeply convinced that Dirce will bring significant value to our teams and to the services we provide to our clients. We are certain that, under Dirce’s coordination, the newly established department will quickly establish itself as a reference in an increasingly important area, both for Eversheds Sutherland FCB and the wider Eversheds network.”

For Dirce Rente, “Eversheds Sutherland FCB possesses several characteristics that make it unique and perfectly aligned with how I believe the practice of law should be conducted. I would like to highlight two key aspects: its focus on people (a ‘culture of friends,’ as it’s often said) and its deep commitment to providing high-quality service to its clients, guided by very high standards in line with international norms. Therefore, it is with tremendous enthusiasm that I embrace this new challenge and become a part of this exceptional team of professionals.’
