About us

Our mission is to make Brazilian institutions more predictable

JOTA, a Brazilian information company, has become a reference for in-depth monitoring and understanding of Brazil’s governmental institutions.

JOTA takes a new approach to power, helping businesses operate in a more transparent legal field and a more predictable corporate environment.  JOTA’s website receives over one million qualified readers each month on average, and our exclusive JOTA Pro information services have among their subscribers hundreds of individuals, companies, agencies and law firms that rely on our ethical, high-quality, and precise work.

JOTA was created by a group of journalists specialized in covering the Brazilian judiciary branch. At that time reporting for Brazil’s leading newspapers and magazines, JOTA’s founders realized there was a growing demand for better information, analysis and behind-the-scenes coverage of this field, which is increasingly enmeshed with Brazilian politics.

The service was officially launched in 2014, adopting its name – the spelling out of the letter “J” in Portuguese – to symbolize its commitment to journalism and justice.

An instant success, JOTA’s founders discovered that the demand for more detailed information went far beyond the judiciary, and JOTA began covering all branches of government.

Whether you need to follow Brazilian elections closely; have a finger on the pulse of the legislature or keep up with specific bills in Congress; track judicial cases and corruption investigations; or know everything about taxes or mergers and acquisitions, JOTA has a service for you.

Since its inception, JOTA has gone from a group of five to a team of nearly 40 people, with offices in Brasília, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Washington, D.C. Guided by the public interest, a commitment to ethics and impartiality, JOTA has already become the most useful, relevant, influential, and trustworthy source of information about power in Brazil.
