Corporate and M&A Tier 1

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.

It is particularly recommended for advising on contaminated sites, but has a broad take on environmental matters. Recent work included acting for Rural Brasil, on whose behalf the group handled the administrative defence, civil investigation and negotiations with the public authorities concerning the acquisition of soybeans that allegedly came from embargoed areas. New client wins include Copart do Brasil, RMS do Brasil Administração de Florestas and Mohawk Industries. 'Dedicated' and 'competent' practice head Luiz Sant’Anna is 'very accessible'. Senior associates Marise Hosomi Spitzeck and Lourdes de Alcântara Machado also stand out.

Leading individuals

International trade and customs Tier 1

The 'practical, fast and knowledgeable' international trade team at Demarest Advogados maintains a large market share in trade remedy investigations - those initiated abroad as well as those originating in Brazil. The firm has likewise established a strong customs practice, under the leadership of Oswaldo Leite de Moraes. Also notable is the firm's track record in representing Brazil in WTO cases. In WTO cases DS472 and DS497 -initiated by the EU and Japan and challenging Brazilian industrial policies- a team led by José Setti Diaz acted for the National Industry Confederation (CNI) to defend the interests of the exporting sector. Other key members of the team include senior associate Fernando Benjamin Bueno and litigation specialist Camila Biral, who is well versed in anti-dumping investigations. Trade, customs and tax expert Victor Bovarotti Lopes made partner in 2019.

Banking and finance Tier 2

Demarest Advogados' practice routinely handles syndicated loans, debt restructurings and trade finance, with a strong presence in the automotive and agribusiness sectors. In a recent example, key partner Fabio de Almeida Braga advised Banco do Brasil and Banco Bradesco, as lenders, and JPMorgan Chase Bank, as administrative agent, on the Brazilian leg of a $14.5bn global syndicated loan to General Motors, including General Motors do Brasil. Among borrower-side highlights, Braga advised Goodyear Tire & Rubber on the local aspects of a $400m refinancing. António Manuel França Aires is a 'reference in the market for banking matters' and advised new client China Development Bank on the extension of unsecured working-capital loans totaling $22m to XCMG Brasil. Antonio Giglio Neto is also a senior name and acted as Brazilian counsel to CCB Financial Leasing on the $235.5m sale and leaseback of a floating storage and regasification unit. The practice has also recently undertaken work for Banco Hyundai Capital Brasil and Paschoalotto Serviços Financeiros. Senior associate Marcelo Simon Ikeziri is also recommended for his ability to 'simplify complex matters'. Since publication the team has been further strengthened with the February 2020 hire of Helen Naves, formerly at Trench Rossi Watanabe.

Bankruptcy and restructuring Tier 2

The ‘very responsive’ lawyers at Demarest Advogados illustrate ‘great business acumen’. The restructuring team remains busy, continuing to assist clients in all types of restructuring proceedings and in distressed M&As. In recent work, Celso Xavier acted for Macquarie Bank as creditor in the judicial reorganization of Seara Indústria e Comércio de Produtos Agropecuários. Guilherme Fontes Bechara, who was promoted to partner in January 2019, receives strong praise for his ‘very practical approach to problems and legal solutions’.

The ‘very strong and dedicated team’ at Demarest Advogados is valued for its ‘deep business understanding’ and ability to provide ‘tailor-made solutions adapted to the client’s needs’. The practice has experience across a broad mix of capital markets matters but is best known for its strength in debt offerings and structured-finance transactions. Group head Thiago Giantomassi, who ‘provides solid results’, recently led the firm’s advice to the banks on CIBRASEC – Companhia Brasileira de Securitização’s R$961.7m issuance of agribusiness receivables certificates. Over the past year, the firm also advised on several issuances of agribusiness credit rights certificates - for both banks and issuers. Impressive senior associate Denise Okimura relocated to the firm’s New York office.

Competition and antitrust Tier 2

The 'very seasoned partners' at Demarest Advogados have 'both consultive and litigation abilities' and receive plaudits for their 'deep technical skills'. The antitrust team has expanded its cross-border work and also picked up a number of significant new clients. Meanwhile, it has expanded its market share in merger filings, thanks to both the strength of its M&A department and the reputation of its standalone competition practice. Paola Pugliese and senior associate Milena Fernandes Mundim successfully represented several companies, including leading financial institutions, to obtain approval from CADE for a greenfield joint venture. (Since publication -in January 2020- Ms Mundim has been appointed partner). Other key figures include Bruno Drago. In internal developments, the team was further bolstered by the arrival of Daniel Oliveira Andreoli from TozziniFreire Advogados.

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.
