Cleary Gottlieb opened the São Paulo office in 2011.
The São Paulo office provides local and foreign clients with a broad range of U.S. and English legal services, and offers Brazilian clients access to the firm’s global network of offices in the Americas, Europe and Asia. We advise clients on international financing (capital markets, project finance and restructuring), cross-border mergers and acquisitions, regulatory and tax issues, corporate governance and litigation and arbitration.
Cleary Gottlieb has had a leading Brazil practice for more than 40 years. We are recognized as one of the best firms by Chambers Global for Corporate: International Counsel in Brazil, and have been counsel in $100 billion in capital markets offerings by Brazilian issuers since 2000 and in more than $60 billion in Brazil-related M&A transactions since 2000.
With more than 100 lawyers, over 30 of whom are partners or counsel, engaged in the practice, Cleary Gottlieb’s Latin American practice has a broader and deeper talent base in this area than any other law firm and is widely recognized for its depth and breadth of knowledge about local customs and practices, as well as for its longstanding relationships with local law firms.
Cleary Gottlieb counts more than 25 Portuguese speakers and 100 Spanish speakers in its São Paulo, New York, Washington and Buenos Aires offices, and lawyers in the São Paulo office are fully integrated with the firm’s Latin America practice.
Cleary Gottlieb’s commitment to and knowledge of Latin America is unparalleled. Evidencing our strength in the region, LatinFinance awarded Cleary Gottlieb “Best Law Firm” in Latin America over the past 20 years in 2008.
