Mattos Filho, Veiga Filho, Marrey Jr e Quiroga Advogados has re-hired an M&A partner in São Paulo, and recruited a public law and data privacy partner to its Brasília office – bringing the total number of partners at the firm to 80.

Luciana Lorenzo, 35, and Thiago Sombra, 36, join Mattos Filho today. Both say they were drawn by the firm’s “internal management structure”.

Lorenzo returns to Mattos Filho, where she was previously an associate, after three years as a partner at Lobo de Rizzo Advogados. A career highlight came in 2014, when she worked on a US$1.3 merger between Brazilian clothing manufacturer Restoque Comércio e Confecções de Roupas and fashion retailer Dudalina.

José Eduardo Carneiro Queiroz says of Lorenzo’s hire: “Her practice is very similar to ours: she advises private equity firms, investment banks and local and foreign investors.” He adds that there is “more space to grow” Mattos Filho’s M&A practice, which now has 18 partners and a total lawyer headcount of 65.

Mattos Filho has one of the best M&A practices in Brazil, with partners Moacir Zilbovicius and João Ricardo Ribeiro at the helm. The department Lorenzo leaves behind at Lobo de Rizzo is strong, recently securing a major coup with the hire of a top former Machado Meyer Advogados lawyer. Read Full Article
