Corporate and M&A

Within: Corporate and M&A

The busy and buoyant M&A department at Demarest Advogados has seen significant growth. In 2018, the firm hired Joyl Gondim from Azevedo Sette Advogados and Guilherme Vieira da Silva from Tauil & Chequer Advogados in association with Mayer Brown, as well as promoting Glaucia Ferreira and Thereza Maria Sarfert Franco Montoro to the partnership in 2018 and 2019, respectively. It has also expanded its private equity practice and counts major private equity firms among its clients, many of which are new clients for the firm. The practice group's cross-border capabilities are also of note; highly regarded international firms have referred work to the M&A team in multi-jurisdictional matters, and the firm also runs a number of foreign desks. In recent examples, Thiago Barbosa Sandim acted for Deere & Company on its acquisition of Wirtgen Group, and Gabriel Ricardo Kuznietz advised General Electric on the sale of its global electrification solutions business to ABB. In a significant matter in the transport and logistics sector, André Luiz Freire advised Azul Linhas Aéreas on the establishment of an integrated logistics solutions company with Correios do Brasil; the company will have 50.01% of its capital owned by the former and 49.99% owned by the latter. Luciana Cossermelli Tornovsky has vast experience in M&A and joint ventures, and also heads the firm's pro bono practice and corporate responsibility groups. Lucas Tavares Bueno, Thiago Rodrigues Maia and José Setti Diaz are additional contacts. Paulo Coelho da Rocha is highly recommended.

Real estate

Within: Real estate

Demarest Advogados's team 'navigates the complexity of real estate transactions in Brazil and provides creative solutions'. Its ability to work alongside colleagues in the firm's well-renowned M&A and capital markets teams is regarded as a differentiator. In one example, a multi-disciplinary team led by Thiago Giantomassi advised XP Investimentos on the structuring, and incorporation of a Real Estate Investment Fund and subsequent public offering of quotas. Other projects keeping the team busy in 2018 included real estate acquisitions and built-to-suit lease agreements. Lucas Tavares Bueno is the practice head. Henrique Anders is a key contact at the senior associate level.
