We have one of the largest teams of international law firms operating in Brazil, with nine experienced lawyers, most of whom have worked in Brazil for many years. From our offices in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, we advise Brazilian and international clients on English and US law issues throughout Latin America.
The majority of our lawyers are fluent in both English and Portuguese and our Brazil team also includes lawyers who are fluent in Spanish, as well as lawyers with Mandarin Chinese language capability.
For Brazilian law issues, we work with the leading Brazilian law firms, with whom we have established relationships and a number of common clients.
Our Brazil team has extensive experience in the areas of energy, including oil and gas and renewables; projects; banking and finance; corporate and M&A; bankruptcy, financial restructuring and insolvency; infrastructure, mining and commodities; and transport. Working closely with our specialist teams in the US and Europe, we also advise clients on international dispute resolution and regulatory matters including compliance and investigations.
Our on-the-ground global capability, combined with our regional knowledge and experience, enables us to advise both international clients on in-bound work to Brazil and the wider Latin American region, and Brazilian and other Latin American corporates and financial institutions on their activities outside Brazil.
