Anderson Trautman Cardoso concentrates his practice on taxation, tax controversies and litigation, and customs. He has been handling complex tax litigation for over 10 years now, having successfully tried a number of highly relevant tax cases before several courts, including the Brazilian Supreme Court (STF) and the Superior Court of Justice (STJ). Moreover, Anderson has also effectively represented clients in a wide array of significant matters before the administrative courts at state and local levels. Anderson’s vast experience includes an extensive range of complex litigation matters involving, among others, lawsuits and administrative proceedings designed to prevent undue tax collections and recover taxes that have been unduly paid.

As to his expertise in consultancy, Anderson has mainly devoted his practice to matters concerning VAT (ICMS), Service Tax (ISSQN), import and export duties, as well as tax benefits. Furthermore, it is based on his extensive experience in handling matters concerning tax controversy that he has also directly assisted numerous clients to better prepare for government reviews, while providing sound and realistic client-focused tax advice based on client-business operations and activities. His major clients include leading Brazilian companies and multi-national corporations, most of which are in the petrochemical, infrastructure and technology industries, among others.
