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.

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.

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.
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 2Demarest 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.

(Since publication -in January 2020- Ms Mundim has been appointed partner). Other key figures include Bruno Drago.
