'Aline Fidelis is undoubtedly an out-of-the-box partner. Smart, practical, hard worker, always available to serve us efficiently. We noticed how she is always ahead in technical matters, which shows that she is always studying all topics related to labour law in Brazil. In addition, she has formed an excellent team, which grows every year. We see new members assisting us and all of them with excellent technical quality. Even though the team is uniform in terms of service excellence, I understand that the associates Isabela do Val and Valentina Eluf stand out. Aline Fidelis is a consolidated star and, in my opinion, she is forming two new stars for the next generations.’
