The Corporate group of the São Paulo office is seeking to hire mid to senior-level, experienced Capital Markets attorneys with ability to lead transactions. Focus on candidates with capital markets background; however, willing to consider any general corporate background as well. Portuguese language skills are strongly preferred (or willingness to learn). While the ideal candidate would already be based in São Paulo, relocation is not an issue, and the Firm can provide visa and relocation support. High level of academic achievement and solid law firm experience is a must.
