Environment

Within: Environment

Siqueira Castro – Advogados is a firm with unparalleled reach across Brazil. Contentious issues are a particular focus. For example, the group is representing AES Brasil in several cases concerning irregular occupations on environmentally protected areas surrounding the hydroelectric power plants and concerning vegetation suppression around transmissions energy lines. BASF, Bunge Alimentos and Cosan Logística are also clients. Simone Paschoal Nogueira and Marina Vieira Freire Colósio are the two partners on the team following public law expert Renato Otto Kloss' departure to Vella Pugliese Buosi e Guidoni Advogados in February 2019.

Electricity

Within: Electricity

In a headline market move, early 2019 saw Siqueira Castro – Advogados absorb leading Sao Paulo-based energy specialists Advocacia Waltenberg. The former managing partner of the acquired boutique, David Waltenberg, now leads the combined energy practice group, which is spread between the national firm’s Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro offices. In addition to Waltenberg’s regulatory prowess, the wider firm also brings to bear significant expertise in administrative litigation, licensing, environmental issues and project development. Energy and environmental specialist Simone Paschoal Nogueira is also recommended.

Mining

Major national and multinational mining companies turn to Siqueira Castro – Advogados for support on a wide range of regulatory and transactional issues. The litigation powerhouse is particularly well positioned to advise on contentious environmental and administrative law cases, but it also handles non-contentious issues, including due diligence procedures and contract negotiations. The firm routinely represents Vale in regulatory and administrative proceedings and it also counts Companhia Riograndense de Valorização de Resíduos and Mineração Buritirama as key clients. Simone Paschoal Nogueira and Carlos Roberto Siqueira Castro co-head the department.
