Law Firm of the Year: Brazil: Pinheiro Neto

Law Firm of the Year: Brazil: Pinheiro Neto

While 2017 signaled the end of the economic contraction in the Brazilian economy, growth in 2018 still hovered around 1% amid large fiscal deficits, legislative deadlock and political uncertainty in a new presidential election cycle. Still, this firm has advised some notable transactions in a challenging environment.

In January, the firm advised the global coordinators and bookrunners for PagSeguro’s IPO on the New York Stock Exchange. The firm also provided legal counsel to the airline company Azul in its $1.2bn dual issuance on the US and Brazilian stock exchanges in September.

And tonight we congratulate Pinheiro Neto!
