Corporate and M&A Tier 6

Originally founded as CFA Advogados back in 2011 and subsequently reorganised as Neiva Barros & Figueiró, Sociedade de Advogados in 2017, following the incorporation of new name partners; the firm subsequently entered a cooperation agreement with Spanish legal giant, Garrigues, significantly boosting its market profile. Headline ongoing matters include advising on the Brazilian aspects of Micro Focus' $8.8bn global acquisition of HPE Software from HP. Other notable mandates include assisting AT&T with the local aspects of its global acquisition of cyber-security company AlienVault; and -in conjunction with Garrigues' offices in Chile and Colombia- advising funds FCP Emprendimiento e Innovación and Fondo de Inversión Privado Social 2.0 on the acquisition of a 22.55% stake in recycling-sector operator TriCiclos. Name partners and co-practice heads Tomás Neiva (M&A, venture capital, finance, restructuring and contracts) and Marcela Figueiró (M&A, infrastructure, projects, and banking and finance) are the key points of contact.
