Renowned firmVernalha Pereira Advogados has a strong reputation for both contentious and non-contentious matters, assisting with PPPs, high-value public tenders and concessions. Founding partner Fernando Vernalha Guimarães is a key resource for large public concessionaires and development banks. He is supported by Thiago Lima Breus and Angelica Petian, who handle the entire spectrum of public law and regulatory work, standing out for their experience in the infrastructure and sanitation sectors. Luiz Fernando Casagrande Pereira is also recommended for contentious and anti-corruption matters. The group was further strengthened in June 2023 by the arrival of constitutional, administrative and regulatory law specialist Rodrigo Pinto De Campos and Aline Lícia Klein from Porto Lauand Advogados; both possess in-depth knowledge of bidding procedures, government contracts and public concessions.
