Attorneys in Skadden’s São Paulo office (opened in September 2008) represent Brazilian and global companies and financial firms in corporate transactions, working as part of the firm’s Latin America practice in areas such as M&A, corporate finance, private equity, banking, project finance, restructuring and arbitration. The São Paulo office provides U.S. legal services to the increasing number of Brazilian and Latin American companies in need of a global law firm to handle significant transactions, particularly in the areas of M&A, stock-for-stock mergers, private equity and international debt financings.
Skadden has a unique familiarity with the nature of business in Latin America, having established our practice in 1990 — long before most large law firms. Our clients have included many of the major international and Latin American investment banks and financial institutions in capital markets, M&A and other transactions. Skadden also has represented leading international and Latin American private equity firms.
We repeatedly have been recognized for our leadership in the region. Skadden ranked as a leading law firm for corporate/M&A, capital markets, banking and finance, and international arbitration in Latin America, and as a leading law firm in Brazil for international capital markets and corporate/M&A by Chambers Latin America 2013. Skadden was named Corporate/M&A Law Firm of the Year for International Counsel in Latin America at the Chambers Latin America Awards for Excellence 2011 and was ranked first based on value in announced M&A transactions in Latin America in 2011 by Thomson Reuters (January 2012). We ranked first among international firms in M&A by deal value in Brazil in 2011 (Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters, January 2012), and we were the only non-Brazilian firm among the top eight firms (Bloomberg, January 2012). We also have been recognized by Latin Lawyer, LatinFinance and other publications with “deal of the year” distinctions for numerous representations in the region.
