At Cescon, Barrieu, Flesch & Barreto Advogados, the 'partners are always available and fully involved in deals', according to sources. The practice, which is traditionally best known for its expertise in project finance and complex debt restructuring transactions, had an impressive year on the sovereign front. Most notably, Rio de Janeiro-based MaurĂ­cio Teixeira dos Santos advised BB Securities and BNP Paribas on the local aspects of Rio Oil Finance Trust's $600m notes offering, which allowed the State of Rio de Janeiro to repay debts incurred to fund its employees' pension fund. In Sao Paulo, high-profile figure Ronald Herscovici, whose 'knowledge and behaviour towards counter parties are an asset to any client', paired up with Daniel Laudisio, who has ‘an eye for detail’, to advise Suzano Papel e Celulose on a $6.9bn bridge loan facility to fund the acquisition of Fibria - a transaction that represented the largest unsecured acquisition-financing in Brazil to date. In a significant cross-office collaboration, Sao Paulo's Alexandre Gossn Barreto acted alongside Rio de Janeiro-based project finance specialist Rafael Baleroni to act for Deutsche Bank on a $130m loan to GTB-TBG Holdings. Other names to note include Joaquim JosĂ© Aceturi de Oliveira and Ana Paula Calil in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro-based Eduardo Kuhlmann Abrantes.
