Norton Rose Fulbright

Norton Rose Fulbright has exploited its extensive international network to make inroads into the increased capital flows from Asia. It remains a considerable presence in project and infrastructure finance, trade and commodities finance, and hybrid financings involving the capital markets; the arrival of George Baptista from Mayer Brown in May 2018 has added significantly to the firm's Latin America capital markets expertise. The sizeable finance team in Sao Paulo is active across Latin America including in Brazil, Chile, Peru, Colombia, Uruguay and Argentina; it frequently works alongside colleagues in New York and Washington DC. The 'team is really well prepared and has a lot of expertise', 'looks into all details and doesn't miss anything'. Clients include Banco de Brasil, ING Bank, Banco Rabobank International Brasil, LATAM Airlines, Vale and Enel Brasil. Mining-sector finance is a growth area for the department and it advised Lundin Gold on its $350m senior secured project financing for the $1bn development and construction of the Fruta del Norte gold project in Ecuador. In another major transaction a team advised Braskem on a $1bn syndicated revolving credit facility, one of the largest syndicated financings provided for a Brazilian entity in 2018. The team is also experiencing an uptick in engagements from alternative lenders and debt funds, and continues to be active in the restructuring segment in Brazil. Charles Johnson is a leader in Sao Paulo, where he has a broad mix of syndicated lending, restructuring, project finance, and trade and commodities financing work. Fellow Sao Paulo partner Daniel Spencer is a big name in project finance throughout Latin America, while Silvia Fazio, Michael McCourt and Alison Baxter are also important figures in Brazil. Raquel Bierzwinsky splits her time between New York and Mexico City and has a fine record in Mexico project finance. Washington DC partner Sarah Devine advises a number of multilateral agencies and development banks on Latin America financings.
