Corporate and M&A Tier 3

The thriving corporate and M&A practice at Vella Pugliese Buosi e Guidoni Advogados is increasingly active in large transactions, thanks in part to its strategic alliance with multinational firm Dentons. Many members of the team also draw on previous experience at international law firms, putting the department in a good position to handle cross-border matters. It is also notable for its work in healthcare. Highlights included advising NotreDame Intermédica on its acquisition of health insurance group Greenline Sistema de Saúde. The team's vast knowledge of the private equity sector is another distinguishing feature; private equity investments are among recently promoted partner Bruna Gobbi's specialisms. Other team changes included the departure of Bruno Ferla to an in-house position, and the arrival of Gabriella Maranesi Najjar from Tauil & Chequer Advogados in association with Mayer Brown. Rodrigo Vella is the practice head.
