Banking and finance

Within: Banking and finance

Veirano Advogados' national banking and finance practice benefits from top-level firepower in both its Rio de Janiero and Sao Paulo offices. Notably, the former city is the base of department lead Marcelo Mattos, who enjoys a strong profile in the market for his specialist expertise in energy, shipping and mining-related transactions. Among his highlights, Mattos advised Equinox Gold on an $85m financing provided by Sprott Private Resource Lending (Collector) to Equinox Gold's subsidiary Aurizona Goldfields to support the development of its Aurizona Gold mining project. Indeed, project finance generally is a signature group strength. In another example of its prominent reputation in that area, Ana Carolina Barretto, who leads the firm's projects practice in Sao Paulo, paired up with Rio de Janeiro-based corporate finance specialist Pedro Freitas to advise concessionaire Fraport Brasil Aeroporto de Fortaleza on a R$692m financing granted by Banco do Nordeste do Brasil to fund the expansion and maintenance of Fortaleza International Airport. Outside the projects space, Sao Paulo's Daniela Anversa advised Sky Serviços de Banda Larga, as borrower, on the local aspects of its $1bn syndicated loan involving 16 banks, including Citibank and JP Morgan. Other names to note in Rio de Janeiro include Otávio Carneiro and Elisa Rezende, while Lior Pinsky is also a key contact in Sao Paulo. Rogério Campos recently made partner in Rio de Janeiro.
