Hence, lawyers in Brazil date almost two centuries back. Some prominent lawyers who shaped present day law in Brazil include Aldemar Tavares, Afonso Pena, Alvares de Azevedo among others.
Today, Brazil prides itself for being the third country with the largest number of lawyers in the world after India and The United States of America according to a statistics done in 2010. This is majorly contributed by the high number of law schools in the country with The Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) in the state of Minas Gerais topping the list of the best Brazilian Law Schools. For a university graduate from law school to be able to practice law in Brazil that is, act on behalf of clients before a Court of Law, he or she must be registered at the Order of Attorneys of Brazil and to get registered he or she must have passed the Brazilian Bar Examination done every March, August and December nationally. The number of registered lawyers in Brazil is a little over 800 thousand.
Among these 800 thousand registered lawyers is Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho. Mr. Tosto is one of the most prominent leaders and strategist in Brazilian legal practice. He has a degree of law from Universidade Presbiteriana Mackenzie and a post graduate degree in Business Administration at Fundaco Armando Alvares Penteado (FAAP).

So other than practicing business law, Mr. Tosto also specializes in civil and commercial litigation, credit recovery, M&A, banking, corporate restructuring, international law and electoral law.
