Within: Corporate and M&A (including ‘compliance’)

KLA-Koury Lopes Advogados was among the first firms to establish a compliance and anti-corruption practice; Isabel Franco ‘is extremely well versed in the FCPA, and has helped to tailor FCPA compliance programs for companies operating in Brazil’. She and Eloy Rizzo are noted for their ‘spectacular English skills, deep familiarity with US culture and rigorous standards’. In M&A, the team remains busy and is a popular choice for clients in the TMT, pulp and paper, and life sciences sectors. Melissa Kanô acted for Bamboo Capital Partners on its acquisition of Compara Online, a Chilean company with two Brazilian subsidiaries. Karin Alvo’s expertise includes venture capital matters, and Tania Liberman is also recommended. Miriam Machado left to join Felsberg Advogados in 2018.
