Claudia Securato

Our Positive Woman of the week is Claudia Securato, lawyer, partner at Securato e Abdul Ahad Advogados, professor, advocate for social responsibility and gender equality, mother of three, and an avid reader. "In 2019, I created the Instagram page @livrosdaclau, where I share my passion for books and promote contemporary Brazilian female authors," she revealed. "Currently, besides practicing law intensely, I dedicate myself to studying women in the labor market, the future of work, and the issues involving the 'S' in ESG. I am a professor at Saint Paul Escola de Negócios and an active voice in gender equality discussions. [...] My somewhat utopian dreams are to see Brazil prosper with the appreciation of education and the reduction of social inequality, and for women to achieve the long-awaited and deserved equality with men."



1. How did your career begin? I am from Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, and graduated there in journalism and law. Newly graduated, I moved to São Paulo to study and work. I became a labor lawyer by chance when I accepted a partnership with a family friend. In 2006, I founded my own firm, now called Securato e Abdul Ahad Advogados, focused on corporate law. In 2019, I created the Instagram page @livrosdaclau, where I share my passion for books and promote contemporary Brazilian female authors. Currently, besides practicing law intensely, I dedicate myself to studying women in the labor market, the future of work, and the issues involving the 'S' in ESG. I am a professor at Saint Paul Escola de Negócios and an active voice in gender equality discussions.


2. How is the business model of Securato e Abdul Ahad Advogados structured? The firm is headquartered in São Paulo, but operates nationwide and in all sectors of the economy, focusing on labor and civil areas. The firm's differentiator is harmonizing innovative ideas with practical solutions. The personalized service allows constant interaction between lawyers and clients, facilitating the exchange of information and ideas, enabling full leverage in decision-making. Legal opinions, consultations, and procedural documents are crafted uniquely and meticulously, paying attention to every detail, as each case is seen as unique with its specific characteristics, singularities, and solutions. The firm is recognized by clients, colleagues, and partners for excellence in service delivery and has been consistently awarded for its performance.


3. What was the most challenging moment in your career? When my twin children, Helena and Vicente, who are now 7 years old, were born, I reconsidered my career and future perspectives a lot. At that time, Antonio, my first son, was only 1 year and 5 months old, and the pressure of taking care of three babies almost made me give up the career I had built. During that period, I decided to take the first ABPW program for training women for boards of directors at Saint Paul Escola de Negócios. At a time when I was exhausted, meeting other women who were in the same situation brought me enormous comfort and encouragement to continue.


4. How do you balance your personal and corporate/entrepreneurial life? Every day, I see that one of the biggest challenges for women is balancing their numerous roles. I am very lucky to have a great support network, a participative husband, a mother who, despite living in another state, is always present, and an amazing and generous team both at the office and at home. Even so, I go through many difficult moments, of questioning and anguish, where I need to strive to regain the strength to move forward.


5. What is your biggest dream? Two very utopian dreams: to see Brazil prosper with the appreciation of education and the reduction of social inequality, and for women to achieve the long-awaited and deserved equality with men in the labor market.


6. What is your greatest achievement? I always envisioned that I would be able to reconcile my family with my career, and when I see my children and my projects growing together and healthy, I think I am on the right path.


7. Book, movie, and woman you admire. It's very difficult to choose just one, I love many books, movies, and admire many women. We are not lacking role models to follow. Books: I recommend getting to know contemporary Brazilian female authors and I am sure you will have great surprises. I have many tips on @livrosdaclau, but here are a few: Carola Saavedra, Renata Belmonte, Carol Bensimon, Andrea del Fuego, and Juliana Leite. Movie: "I, Tonya," the true story of a figure skater who suffered abuse from her mother, harassment from colleagues and coaches, lived in an abusive relationship, and on the eve of the Olympics, found herself accused of a crime. A critique of celebrity culture, the dictatorship of appearances, the appreciation of the superficial. Woman: Nadia Murad, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 2018, and all the feminist activists who seek justice for victims of violence and harassment around the world.
