Professor of International Law, Salem Nasser is a founding partner of Nasser Advogados. Since 2000, he has been primarily dedicated to teaching and research on international law theory, the multiplying ways of regulation of international condition, and relations between legal and regulatory systems and regimes. Since 2004, he has been carrying out such activities exclusively at São Paulo Law School of Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV Direito SP). At Nasser Advogados, he has mainly an advisory role, in all matters related to international law and arbitration. He issues opinions and advice and assists in developing action strategies.

Within the firm’s International Law Team, he designed and helped to implement the International Case Law Project (Jurisprudência Internacional-JI). The project started as a newsletter, but soon turned into a blog, where the team surveys the activity of International Courts and reviews the most relevant decisions, especially those related to the interests of Brazil or companies with business in Brazil. Also in a joint effort with the International Law Team, he has been further enhancing the firm’s capacity to deal with the most complex international issues, which paradoxically affect even the most domestic and ordinary legal facts. Some examples are:

  • the extraterritorial effects of other countries’ rules or measures on Brazilian companies’ contacts, exports, or even corporate governance policies;
  • the possibility of legal disputes being held in more than one national jurisdiction;
  • the possibility of various national laws being applicable to businesses;
  • the growing possibility of businesses and legal relationships being affected by rules and institutions of private origin and nature, etc.

He earned a DSU degree (in Private International Law) and a DEA degree (in Public International Law) from the University of Paris II, and a PhD degree from the University of São Paulo (USP). His published works cover a broad spectrum of topics related to international law theory, soft law, international regimes, Islamic Law among others.
