Bruno BelchiorMayer Brown

Available, experienced and to-the-point’, lawyers at Mayer Brown stand out for their ‘in-depth knowledge of the oil-and-gas industry in Brazil and abroad’ and for their ability to provide ‘precise, business-focused advice without unnecessarily complicating things’. Among its highlights, Bruno Belchior (‘one of the best E&P lawyers in Brazil’) advised Parnaíba Gás Natural on its $54.5m acquisition of the Azulão oil field from Petrobras. In another headline deal, department head Alexandre Chequer acted alongside Belchior to advise Barra Energia (wholly-owned by Riverstone and First Reserve), on a $379m farm-out transaction with Equinor Brazil. On the contentious side, Chequer represented Barra Energia in an oil and gas-related arbitration concerning the offshore Atlanta Field. The group also benefits from the senior experience of Victor Galante and the recent addition of Alexandre Calmon (‘an outstanding lawyer with profound knowledge of oil-and-gas law’), who joined from Vieira, Rezende, Barbosa e Guerreiro Advogados.
