Lawyer Rankings

Brazil > Tax

The tax team at Demarest Advogados is highlighted for its ‘hands-on‘ approach and ‘diversity‘. The sizeable team includes a number of lawyers who have previously worked at the Big Four accounting firms. Areas of specialism include direct and indirect tax, customs, transfer pricing and social security contributions. In a multi-jurisdictional matter, Carlos Eduardo Orsolon and Douglas Mota advised General Electric on the sale of its water business to SUEZ and Canadian fund CDPQ, the Brazilian tax aspects of which were particularly complex. Elsewhere, Marcello Pedroso and Rodrigo Campos have been advising numerous clients on the payroll tax exemption system. Catarina Rosa Rodrigues is highly recommended. Eloisa de Almeida Rego Barros Curi and Christiano Chagas Monteiro de Melo co-head the corporate and direct tax practice with Rodrigues; Marcelo Salles Annunziata leads the tax litigation department.
