GC Powerlist: Brazil Reception

THE LEGAL 500 > EVENTS > GC POWERLIST: BRAZIL

SAO PAULO: 10 NOVEMBER 2016


The first GC Powerlist Brazil was launched at an event in Sao Paulo on Thursday 10th November, with a champagne reception hosted at the Tivoli Hotel, where over 50 in-house lawyers came together to celebrate the very best of the Brazilian in-house legal talent and network with their professional peers.

The GC Powerlist is a publication designed to highlight the most influential and innovative general counsel in a given market. A three month process of nominations, background research and interviews concluded in the selection of 100 in-house lawyers from across Brazil.

Included on the list are the key in-house lawyers for iconic local entities such as Braskem, Vale, Votorantim Metais, Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional (CSN), Grupo Pão de Açúcar (GPA) and Itaú Unibanco, as well as multinational brands including GSK, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, PepsiCo and Unilever. The full list can be seen here.

One of the GCs at the event told us: "This is a truly novel initiative for the Brazilian market and the idea of establishing a platform where in-house counsel from different sectors and industries can connect is of real value. It takes us out of our specialist 'silos' and gives us the opportunity to learn from others and not have to reinvent the wheel! And undoubtedly, the recognition is helpful when it comes to the internal battles faced by every GC within their respective organizations."

Another noted: "In many ways this has been a revelation. One tends to get wrapped up in one's own industry, one's own sector - what this evening has evidenced is that we all have something to bring to the table that may be of use to others in the GC community. Thank you."

Our sincere thanks to sponsoring firm Castro Barros Sobral Gomez Advogados, without which this event would not have been possible.
