Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher’s São Paulo office serves clients in Brazil, Latin America and around the world. Lawyers in our São Paulo office provide international legal advice to clients on mergers and acquisitions, private equity investments and capital markets. Other areas of involvement include project finance, bank finance, fund formation, international arbitration and anti-corruption compliance.
Gibson Dunn opened the São Paulo office in the dynamic financial and economic center of Brazil in 2009 as need arose from our clients for sophisticated, on-the-ground legal representation in the region. In opening this office, Gibson Dunn demonstrated our long-term commitment to Brazil, and our recognition of the country’s growing importance in the global economy.
Our São Paulo lawyers are members of the New York bar and have lived and practiced in the United States for significant periods of time. All our São Paulo practitioners speak Portuguese and Spanish, and have worked on Brazilian and Latin American deals for over a decade. The same is true of the Latin America Practice Group members who are based in New York.
Gibson Dunn lawyers have been active in Latin America for more than 40 years. We have advised a wide variety of global companies from North America and Europe, as well as leading Latin American corporations, in diverse and high-profile transactions throughout the region. The group has represented many governmental institutions as well. We offer clients a strong team with the experience, local cultural knowledge, language capabilities and resources to navigate the legal regimes of one of the world’s most vibrant regions.
