In 1940, Percy Daniel joined the law firm of Carl Kincaidin Rio de Janeiro, subsequently becoming the partner responsible for the intellectual property law department.

In 1959, after Mr. Kincaid’s death, Percy Daniel founded Daniel & Cia. in partnership with his brother, sister and son, Denis Allan Daniel. Denis Allan Daniel became senior partner in 1977. In January 2002, the firm changed its name to Daniel Advogados, also operating in other areas of law.

In 2005, while still under the leadership of Denis Allan Daniel, and having appointed his daughter Alicia Daniel-Shores as CEO, the office began a profound process of change, which involved the creation of new internal departments, the hiring of new staff and the offering new services.

The expansion of Daniel’s services reached its peak at the end of 2016 with the launch of a new brand, reflecting the position of the firm as a legal services provider and a strategic consultancy on intellectual property management.

Today, with 60 years of history, Daniel is located in the most important business centers of both São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

The branches operate in a fully integrated manner, connecting our multidisciplinary team online, and providing a personalized service in intellectual property within our client’s market segments.
