Experience

Carla Caroli has over 10 years’ international experience in contract negotiation and contract management mainly in the construction, infrastructure, energy and oil and gas sectors. Carla is dual qualified (Brazil and England) and has worked in blue chip companies and law firms in Brazil and at CMS Cameron McKenna in UK and has contributed in a wide range of public and private projects and tender proceedings.

Carla is extremely business oriented and passionate about understanding clients’ needs and finding the best legal advice to help their business flourish safely. Carla has always been known as a lawyer who “adopts” the projects she works in and gives the extra mile to make them achieve their full potential in a pragmatic and customer oriented approach.

Her vast experience with big projects has helped her notice that many suppliers of products, services and innovations to such projects are SMEs which do not have affordable access to good legal advice and contract management expertise.

In her words “I want to use my expertise to help these entrepreneurs perform just like the big players. Assisting them in understanding their rights and obligations and safely reaching the next level of growth and excellence became my passion.”
