Bruno Fagali: Torchbearer for Change in Brazil

Bruno Fagali is leading a movement in Brazil against the corruption and ethical malpractices. As a rising lawyer, he is devoting his life to fighting the ill practices that plague the country. His aim to bring about a change in Brazil and it’s outlook while changing the perception of Brazil as far as corruption and ethics go is one that needs to be admired.

He got his Bachelors in Law from Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo in 2009 and soon after joined the same university to pursue a specialization in Administrative Law. He did not rest on his laurels as he pursued his Masters of Law from the University of Sao Paulo while working with Nova/SB as the Corporate Integrity manager. He graduated and earned his masters in 2017.

During the time he worked toward his masters, he started his own law firm – Fagali Advocacia. Fagali Advocacia has an experienced team handling various facets of legal issues for its clients, providing them with the high quality of service in streams such as Compliance, Public Law, Anti-Corruption Law, to name a few.

Bruno believes there’s a need to bring in compliance programs and corporate governance as part of the routine and not as an outside variable, he believes in the integration of the program within the routine and the different branches of the company like Human Resources, Internal Audit, Legal Department, Accounting Department, and so on.

Along with Lucas Aluisio Scatimburgo Pedroso as partner for Fagali Advocacia, Mr. Fagali aims to bring about a change in the way companies function, bringing in more ethics where it matters and to make sure they don’t simply see compliance laws as guidelines but incorporate them into the inner workings of the company to a point where it becomes a natural part of the firm.

However, even with many companies starting the change and becoming more compliant in 2017, Bruno believes that there are still some shrinking away from the responsibility. He notes that compliance needs to happen at a fundamental level first and then proceed to bring about a strong code of ethics and prevent further irregularities. With rising lawyers like Bruno taking the reigns, Brazil’s future look to be in safe hands.
