Analysis: This multidisciplinary law firm is an increasingly visible force on agribusiness, corporate and M&A, litigation, banking and capital markets deals, in part due to the formidable reputation of Domicio dos Santos Neto. Nevertheless, the firm has seen some partner turnover this year but reacted quickly, boosting its agribusiness and tax groups with senior hires from Mattos Engelberg Echenique. Among other recent mandates, regular client Amaggi, the Brazilian soybean producer, turn to the firm to buy the local subsidiary of Argentine agribusiness El Telhar Group as well as for its US$750 million sustainable bond issuance. The former CEO of Itaú Asset Management enlisted the firm for a US$500 million partnership with BTG Pactual. The firm was founded in São Paulo in 1992 and now has an outpost in New York.
