‘A step ahead’, the ‘high-quality’ team at Demarest Advogados ‘works in partnership with its clients’. It has established itself as a leading firm for high-end M&A in Brazil, and is home to a number of internationally experienced lawyers who can handle multi-jurisdictional transactions. The firm has several international desks; as part of its focus on German companies doing business in the country, a specialist German desk was set up in 2010 under the supervision of André Alarcon, and the firm also has a longstanding Korean desk and a Chinese desk, established in 2014. It has also been expanding its private equity work, attracting new instructions from several private equity firms during 2017. In compliance, the firm has established a multidisciplinary group which combines expertise in anti-corruption, criminal law, competition law, public law and infrastructure; Fabyola En Rodrigues and Bruno Drago are key contacts. Among its recent transactional highlights, Thiago Barbosa Sandim advised Deere & Company on the acquisition of German-headquartered company Wirtgen Group. In other global deals, the highly rated Luciana Cossermelli Tornovsky advised Dell EMC on the Brazilian aspects of the $1.62bn sale of its enterprise content division to Open Text Corporation. Lucas Tavares Bueno, Paulo Coelho da Rocha, Gonçalo Capela Godinho, Ana Carolina Botto Audi, Thiago Rodrigues Maia and the ‘very experienced and hands-on’ José Setti Diaz are other names to note. 2018 saw Joyl Gondim and Guilherme Vieira da Silva join from Azevedo Sette Advogados and Tauil & Chequer Advogados in association with Mayer Brown, respectively.
