Founded by the firm’s partners in 2018, Instituto Mattos Filho, Veiga Filho, Marrey Jr e Quiroga (Instituto Mattos Filho) seeks to promote law and strengthen access to justice in Brazil.

It is also supported by 20% of the annual income of an independent investment fund that relies on contributions from the partners and the firm, allowing Instituto Mattos Filho to carry out its work sustainably into the future.
