Our São Paulo office reflects Allen & Overy's long-term investment in Brazil and the broader Latin American region.
Our local presence is a natural outgrowth of our decades of participation in Brazil and Latin America-related transactions from our offices around the world.
Our dedicated São Paulo team combines our strength in corporate finance with cultural familiarity and language skills to provide clients with highly effective service on Brazilian and Latin American transactions. Our experience in market-leading transactions, together with our long-standing working relationships with the country’s best local law firms, give us and our clients excellent access to current legal developments and local market intelligence.
With a large number of transactions in Brazil involving cross-border elements, our São Paulo office is also supported by additional Portuguese speaking project finance, capital markets, trade finance, general banking and corporate lawyers located in our New York, London and Tokyo offices. Although we (and all other international firms with offices in Brazil) are not permitted by the Brazilian bar to practice Brazilian law, we understand the Brazilian market, legal environment and risks, and are well seasoned in advising foreign investors in doing deals and transacting in Brazil.
