AACNI is a global independent firm
Focussed on trade, transport and energy
With a personal and innovative approach
We are a legal boutique that brings together independent practices in United Kingdom, Spain, Brazil and Portugal. These practices share knowledge, resources and values.
Trade, shipping and energy are the core sectors most of our clients operate from. Our clients’ profile goes from major international corporations to private individuals and local communities. Our goal is to build lasting relationships with all of them.
We have a hands-on experience in litigation and arbitration, and charge fair rates for advising and representing our clients thereon. Occasionally, we may agree to work pro-bono or on conditional fees.
When it comes to rights and justice, no client is too small and no case is too complex.
2000: Our most senior practice is incorporated as a limited liability partnership in Spain. It is named Abogados Asociados para el Comercio, la Navegación y la Industria, SLP.
2008: AACNI is registered as a trademark for services in the EU.
2009: AACNI (UK) LTD. is created in the United Kingdom, and ever since has kept a special focus and dedication to arbitration.
2012: AACNI, de Souza & Nunes Consorcio de Advogados is formed as a consortium of lawyers to attend transnational interests of individuals and firms between Brazil and Spain.
2017: Augusta, Bravo Alves & Associados, Sociedade de Advogados RL joins in providing legal services from Lisbon, Portugal.
In our business people is what matters most. Our team projects confidence, reliance and trust to our clients because we believe in, and stick to, excellence.
Our lawyers, attorneys and solicitors have different skills and backgrounds. They are qualified in different jurisdictions, and altogether are capable of providing a complete assessment in cross-border matters which involve different legal systems.
In addition to practitioners, we count on members of academia and scholars. We are convinced that combining practice and research is key to success in our business.

AACNI is a brand for legal boutiques. It is registered as a trademark in the EU. Behind the acronym, there is an elaborated business model which pursues growth, efficiency and excellence. This model materialises in a network of practices spread in different countries. They are not linked to each other by hierarchy or equity-based ties. They are entirely independent and self-governed. However, they share values, resources and skills, and generally team up in cross-border matters which require expertise in different jurisdictions.
The Arbitration Watch
The Arbitration Watch is a meeting point for practitioners and academics with an interest on arbi- tration. It has two limbs: a portal and a journal. The portal is found at www.arbitrationwatch.com. It provides knowledge in various forms, going from an arbitration atlas to a check-list for enforcement. Turning to the journal, this is a review of news, laws and cases related to arbitration. We are proud to say that it counts with more than 500 subscribers around the world. The Arbitration Watch went live in February 2009. Ever since, we have been leading the project, editing the contents and sponsoring the costs. But we also welcome new participants.
