Corporate and M&A (including ‘compliance’)

Within: Corporate and M&A (including ‘compliance’)

A ‘well-known and hands-on’ firm, Machado Meyer Sendacz e Opice Advogados achieves a balance between domestic and international transactions, with a focus on high-end and high-visibility deals. Following an internal restructuring, the firm has a merged M&A, capital markets and corporate finance practice under the overall leadership of Nei Schilling Zelmanovits, who works alongside practice co-heads specialising in M&A, private equity and publicly traded companies. Adriana Pallis now heads the corporate law and corporate governance practice. The firm’s full-service offering allows the team to draw on expertise in areas including tax, real estate, labour and infrastructure. A combined tax and M&A team led by Guilherme Bueno Malouf, José Ribeiro do Prado Júnior and Gustavo Rugani advised ArcelorMittal on its agreement with Votorantim to combine their long steel businesses; under the agreement, Votorantim will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of ArcelorMittal and will hold a minority stake in ArcelorMittal. The firm also advised Petrobras on the contracts for an alliance with Total, a significant deal within Petrobras’ divestment programme; Arthur Bardawil Penteado, Daniel Szyfman and Elie Sherique led the team. Mauro Cesar Leschziner and Gabriela Falcão Vieira are also recommended along with Luciana Costa Engelberg, who was promoted to partner in 2017.
