Analysis: This restructuring and insolvency boutique has garnered a reputation for competently handling complex matters. It had a role on Oi’s far-reaching restructuring (Latin America’s largest to date), advising Bratel, which held a 27.5% stake in the telecoms company and had litigated against the debtor entity and the creditors in order to protect its interests. The firm is headquartered in São Paulo and has additional offices in the states of Paraná and Santa Catarina. As well as handling restructuring processes, the team advises on transactions that run parallel such as securing new money for clients in distressed situations, assets sales and corporate reorganisations. An impressive litigation offering is also found here, representing clients concerning compliance lawsuits as well as alleged breaches of contract.
