In 1948, we entered a period of intense expansion, which made us becoming Brazil&rsquo;s largest commercial bank in the private sector at the end of the 1960s. We expanded our activities nationwide during the 1970s, conquering Brazilian urban and rural markets. In 1988, we incorporated our housing loan subsidiaries, our investment bank, and our finance company, making us a multiple bank and then we changed our name to Banco Bradesco S.A.

We provide a wide range of banking and financial products and services in Brazil and abroad to individuals, small to mid-sized companies and major local and international corporations and institutions.

Our services and products encompass banking operations such as lending and deposit-taking, credit card issuance, consortiums, insurance, leasing, payment collection and processing, pension plans, asset management and brokerage services. According to information published by the Superintend&ecirc;ncia de Seguros Privados (the Superintendency of Private Insurance, which is known as &ldquo;SUSEP&rdquo;) and by the Ag&ecirc;ncia Nacional de Sa&uacute;de Suplementar (the National Agency of Supplemental Health, known as &ldquo;ANS&rdquo;), we are the largest insurance, pension plan and t&iacute;tulos de capitaliza&ccedil;&atilde;o provider in Brazil on a consolidated basis in terms of insurance premiums, pension plan contributions and income from certificated savings plans.

<p>Banco Votorantim S.A. S&amp;P : Local currency = BB/B ; Foreign Currency BB/B ; National Scale = BrAA Incorporated in 1988 as a broker-dealer, Banco Votorantim became a full-fledged multiple bank in 1991. Initially established as the financial arm of Votorantim Group, the bank subsequently developed a strong client base that allowed it to become the fifth largest privately-held bank in Brazil, focused on fee-based and high aggregate value transactions for large corporations. Headquartered in S&atilde;o Paulo, the bank has branches in Rio de Janeiro, Porto Alegre, a full branch in Nassau&ndash;Bahamas, a Representative Office in London, and a broker-dealer in New York. Banco Votorantim is fully owned by the Erm&iacute;rio de Moraes family, who controls Votorantim Group. This gives the bank the conservative management style and efficient decision-making process inherited from its ownership. The 89-year-old Votorantim Group is one of the largest and most influential privately owned Brazilian industrial conglomerates, with leading market shares in cement, pulp &amp; paper, mining and metallurgy, agro-industry, finance, chemicals, energy and international trade. Along with its historically strong presence in the Treasury markets &ndash; notably hedges &ndash; Banco Votorantim has been strategically diversifying its sources of revenue by investing in annuity business segments with its local subsidiary Votorantim Asset and Consumer Finance through BV Financeira. In addition, Banco Votorantim is enlarging its client portfolio of top-tier Brazilian companies thanks to its brand-name recognition and superior access to the head offices of multinationals through its new Representative Office abroad.</p>

<p>Our Mission</p>

<p>Founded in 2004, the Brazilian Endowment for the Arts (BEA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation located in Manhattan and dedicated to the advancement of Brazilian arts and literature in the United States.</p>

<p>Through the work of its founders and a long list of supporters, writers, artists and staff, BEA fulfills its mission by:</p>

<p>&ndash; Hosting and organizing symposiums, lectures, readings, exhibitions, workshops, film festivals, musical and theatrical performances for the Brazilian community in New York and the tri-state area.</p>

<p>&ndash; Supporting both upcoming and established artists and intellectuals of paramount quality.</p>

<p>&ndash; Maintaining the Brazilian Library of New York. Presently, the Library has a catalog of over 6,000 titles in Portuguese that are available to the institution&rsquo;s members and general public. It is the only library of its kind in the United States.</p>

<p>&nbsp;</p>

<p>Our Beliefs</p>

<p>&ndash; Significant contemporary Brazilian art and literature is being produced outside of Brazil.</p>

<p>&ndash; Government support, which is plentiful for artist and writers that reside in Brazil, does not reach these expatriates.</p>

<p>&ndash; Expatriate Brazilian artists and writers should be able to obtain equal access to resources as their compatriots in Brazil.</p>

<p>The professionals and presentations endorsed by BEA, in addition to the vast collection of its Library, reflect the vitality, richness and relevance of Brazilian literature, arts and intellectual production.</p>

<p>&nbsp;</p>

<p>Our Objectives</p>

<p>&ndash; Promoting Brazilian art, literature, cultural traditions, intellectual endeavors and productions in the United States.</p>

<p>&ndash; Supporting writers, academics, artists, dramatists, musicians, filmmakers, both local and residing in Brazil, showing what aspects of their work portray Brazilian roots and traditions.</p>

<p>&ndash; Raising the general public awareness of Brazil, through programs that showcase the diversity and richness of Brazilian artistic and intellectual productions.</p>

<p>&ndash; Promoting exchange and establishing partnerships with artistic and educational institutions, as well as non-governmental and governmental institutions.</p>

	BRIC&rsquo;s proprietary, web-based program facilitates an interactive, peer-to-peer method proven to effectively harness teachers and students from anywhere in the world. These virtual, face-to-face sessions utilize real-time video and audio playback tools, which allow instructors to proficiently assess key language-learning modules such as pitch and enunciation.</p>
<p>
	Centered on the spoken languages of up-and-coming economies such as <a href="http://briclanguage.com/languages/mandarin-chinese/">China</a>, <a href="http://briclanguage.com/languages/learn-how-to-speak-brazilian-portuguese-online-lessons/">Brazil</a> and Latin America, rigorously trained instructors work to define goals and develop customized lesson plans as they pertain to learners&rsquo; interests and objectives. The only program built upon a language-specific paradigm, <a href="http://briclanguage.com/the-technology/">BRIC utilizes digital workshops</a> and Webex, a video chat application, to facilitate cutting-edge, online lessons that cut the typical language-learning curve in half.</p>
<p>
	The BRIC philosophy encompasses a multi-pronged approach to faster learning by incorporating two key principles: cultural immersion and one-on-one coaching. Typical language-learning techniques often fail, due to the fact that they are solely based on one model: the European language model. &nbsp;</p>
<p>
	In addition, BRIC&rsquo;s comprehensive, cross-cultural training component was designed to engross the mind, the senses and the tongue for an elaborate understanding of the language and its corresponding country. Important insights such as: never give a watch as a gift to your Chinese colleague and avoid using the &ldquo;OK&rdquo; sign in Brazil &nbsp;are important aspects of a strong cultural understanding, and BRIC equips its students with these fundamental perspectives. &nbsp;</p>
<p>
	Fusing its modernized technique with the most sophisticated, interactive web-based capabilities in the world, BRIC&rsquo;s multi-platform program provides versatility and flexibility to students studying abroad, business professionals looking to advance their career, leisure travelers, and everyone in between. With plans to add new languages to the blackboard, including Russian and Arabic, BRIC was designed to cut the learning curve in half for students looking to evolve their language skills and cultural knowledge of languages spoken among fastest growing economies.</p>

<p>Our history began in 1983, when Pactual was founded in Rio de Janeiro as a brokerage.</p>

<p>Since its inception, Pactual has been run as a partnership, via an association established between its founding partners. In the ensuing 13 years, the company has grown considerably, becoming a fully-fledged bank with several offices throughout Brazil.</p>

<p>In May 2006, UBS AG purchased Pactual, creating &quot;UBS Pactual&quot;, the division of UBS in Latin American countries. Andr&eacute; Esteves became CEO of all of UBS&#39; Latin American operations.</p>

<p>In July 2008, Andr&eacute; Esteves and a group of partners left UBS Pactual to create a new company based on the same culture they had previously implemented at Banco Pactual. They were joined by Persio Arida and some former managing directors of UBS, and in October 2008 they created BTG, a global investment company with offices in S&atilde;o Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, London, New York and Hong Kong.</p>

<p>On April 19 2009, BTG acquired UBS Pactual. The transaction was finalized in September 2009, resulting in the creation of BTG Pactual. With the acquisition, the partners who left the Bank in 2008 were reunited with the partners who decided to stay on at the institution throughout the period following the bank&rsquo;s sale to UBS.</p>

<p>In December 2010, we issued US$1.8bn in capital to a consortium of renowned international investors and partners, representing 18.65% of BTG Pactual. The consortium provided us with a relevant group of investors, consolidating and expanding our global network.</p>

<p>In 2011, we purchased a 37.64% stake in Banco PanAmericano, comprising 51.00% of its voting shares and 21.97% of its non-voting shares.</p>

<p>In 2012, we acquired Celfin, the leading brokerage in Chile, which also operates in Peru and Colombia, and Bolsa y Renta, the largest brokerage (in equity volumes) in Colombia. Celfin has a broad range of products and services in the areas of Investment Banking, Products and Financial Services, Asset Management and Wealth Management.</p>

<p>We also held our IPO in 2012, raising R$3.65bn and making us one of the 20 largest listed companies on the BM&amp;FBovespa. This operation gives us more liquidity and reinforces our solid, fast-growing business platform.</p>

<p>In 2013, Banco BTG Pactual, via its subsidiary BTG Pactual Timberland Investments Group LLC, acquired timberland management contracts from Regions Timberland Group (&quot;RTG&quot;), a division of Regions Bank. This acquisition, which expands the Bank&rsquo;s timberland investment platform, makes BTG Pactual the largest independent timberland manager in Latin America and one of the largest worldwide, with committed and invested assets of around US$3bn and a portfolio of over 716,000 hectares, spread across the US, Latin America, Europe and South Africa.</p>

<p>A leading international law firm with 16 offices located in major financial centers around the world, Cleary Gottlieb Steen &amp; Hamilton LLP has helped shape the globalization of the legal profession for more than 65 years. Our worldwide practice has a proven track record for innovation and providing work of the highest quality to meet the needs of our domestic and international clients. In recognition of the firm&rsquo;s strong global practice, its effectiveness in dealing with the different business cultures of the countries in which it operates, and its success in multiple jurisdictions, Cleary Gottlieb received Chambers &amp; Partners&rsquo; inaugural International Law Firm of the Year award.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
Organized and operated as a single, integrated global partnership (rather than a U.S. firm with a network of overseas offices), Cleary Gottlieb employs&nbsp;approximately&nbsp;1,200 lawyers from more than 50 countries and diverse backgrounds who are admitted to practice in numerous jurisdictions around the world. Since the opening of our first European office in 1949, our legal staff has included European lawyers, most of whom have received a portion of their academic legal training in the United States and many of whom have worked as trainees in one of the firm&rsquo;s U.S. offices. The firm was among the first international law firms to hire and promote non-U.S. lawyers as equal partners around the world.<br />
<br />
Our clients include multinational corporations, international financial institutions, sovereign governments and their agencies, as well as domestic corporations and financial institutions in the countries where our offices are located. Although each of our 16 offices has its own practice, our&nbsp;&ldquo;one firm&rdquo; approach to the practice of law offers clients in any office the ability to access the full resources of all of our offices and lawyers worldwide to the extent their matters so require.</p>

<p>Jones Day traces its beginnings to the firm of Blandin &amp; Rice, formed in Cleveland, Ohio in 1893. Edward J. Blandin was one of the most noted litigators in Cleveland; he later was elected President of the Cleveland Bar Association, becoming the first of nine Jones Day partners to be so honored. William Rice was a successful business lawyer. They took on one associate, Frank Ginn, and the Firm rapidly expanded. Tragedy struck in 1910, when Rice was mysteriously murdered while walking home from dinner. The murder was never solved.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
The Firm survived this shock, and in 1913 Frank Ginn became the first of what have been only seven Managing Partners of Jones Day in the century since that time. Other successful lawyers joined the Firm, including the state&rsquo;s leading utilities lawyer, Sheldon Tolles, and a leading railroad lawyer, Tom Hogsett. By 1920, Cleveland had become the fifth largest city in the United States and the home of many large industrial corporations. At that time, the Firm included in its associate ranks two future Managing Partners, Tom Jones and Jack Reavis.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
Among the Firm&rsquo;s most prominent clients were the Van Swearingen Brothers, who controlled the Alleghany Corporation, the Nickle Plate Railroad, the Union Trust Bank, and the Union Station and Terminal Tower complex in downtown Cleveland. John D. Rockefeller was also a significant client, and the Firm became the leading utility law firm in Ohio. It was counsel to the bank credit committee which successfully concluded the reorganization of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, characterized as &quot;the greatest example of equity reorganization.&quot;</p>

Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Laura started playing the piano at the age of 9 and wrote her first ballad, &ldquo;Reason Why&rdquo;, at f 11, when she used to&nbsp; live in the city of&nbsp; Edina, in Minnesota. She taught herself how to play the guitar and the ukulele at her early teens.</p>

<p>Laura started performing her own songs in the music scene of Rio de Janeiro, at the age of 15. Her first record deal, with Universal Music Brazil,&nbsp; came up at the age of 16. Her debut studio album &ldquo;Made in Rio&rdquo;, released in 2011, was produced by British musician Paul Ralphes and the track &ldquo;Who You Are&rdquo; by Brazilian jazz legend Eumir Deodato.</p>

<p>&ldquo;Made in Rio&rdquo; was critically acclaimed and extensively featured in the Brazilian media. Laura was a guest artist in the main Brazilian TV shows and promoted the album with live performances in Rio de Janeiro and S&atilde;o Paulo, with a 6-piece band. The single &ldquo;Fish Out of Water&rdquo; was included in the soundtrack of a popular soap opera from Brazil&rsquo;s major TV network, Rede Globo.</p>

<p>Laura opened up for former Disney star Demi Lovato, at her major concert in Brazil, for 7,000 people, in April 2012. Shortly after, she was offered a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music. In a bold move, she decided to give a break at her rising career in Brazil and move to Boston&nbsp; to pursue a Bachelor of Music degree. She was placed at Berklee&rsquo;s Dean&rsquo;s list for 3 consecutive semesters and featured live in radio shows, in Massachusetts.</p>

<p>In June 2013, she was a Brand USA (www.thebrandusa.com ) guest artist at the 2013 International&nbsp; Pow Wow Expo, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, where she performed live for an audience of 6,000 travel delegates from the U.S. and 70 other countries.</p>

<p>Laura moved to Los Angeles, CA, in August of 2013 to release her sophomore studio album, &ldquo;Reason To Stay&rdquo;, self-released in January 16, 2014. The album features 11 original tracks written and published by Laura, 3 of them in collaboration with her 21-year-old brother Lucas. &ldquo;Reason To Stay&rdquo; was produced in Los Angeles and Tokyo by Nicolas Farmakalidis and mastered by Grammy award winner sound engineer Brad Blackwood.</p>

<p>The album&rsquo;s release served as a driving force to promote environmental education and a greater public awareness regarding the urgent need of conservation and restoration of Brazilian national tree (Pau-Brasil ), also known as &ldquo;The Music Tree&rdquo;, which is listed as an endangered species and currently menaced by the bow-for-stringed-instrument industry.</p>

<p>While in California, Laura Rizzotto graduated from California Institute of the Arts, where she got a Bachelor&rsquo;s Degree in Fine Arts, majoring in Musical Arts, at only 20 years old.</p>

<p>Laura currently lives in New York City, NY, as graduate and independent artist. She arrived in January 2015 and already performed in many venues, as: The Bitter End, Rockwood, SOB, The Map Room Live and Montauk Music Festival. &nbsp;She is already working in her third album and just received a full scholarship to make her master degree in Music and Music Education at Columbia University.</p>

In these units, the organization applies its own pedagogical proposal, comprised of the Pedagogy of Affection and the Ecumenical Citizen Pedagogy. For this reason, the Legion of Good Will is considered a reference in Education with Ecumenical Spirituality.</p>

<p>oday, Brazil enjoys a prominent global status. One of the largest world economies, the country holds a significant consumer market, consolidated institutions, and there are business opportunities in several sectors.<br />
<br />
This is a situation very different from the one the country faced in 1948, when&nbsp;Peixoto &amp; Cury Advogados&nbsp;was founded in the city of S&atilde;o Paulo under the name of&nbsp;Castro e Barros Advogados&nbsp;and the leadership of Duarte Vaz Pacheco do Canto e Castro, an eminent Brazilian law scholar of his time.&nbsp; Back then, the Brazilian industry was embryonic - if compared to the development achieved subsequently - and the economy was taking its first steps towards internationalization given the arrival of some pioneer multinationals, especially in the pharmaceutical, automotive, infrastructure, machinery and equipment industries. The following years brought along the so-called Golden Years, represented by&nbsp;Bossa&nbsp;Nova. In the sports arena, euphoria reigned after the World Soccer Championships in 1958 and 1962.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
Amidst that environment,&nbsp;Peixoto &amp; Cury&nbsp;was consolidating itself in the practice of law. Its mission was to be a law firm able to assist its clients to understand that new flourishing Brazil, including in the light of the new foreign capital law enacted in 1962. After all, the economic, social and political transformations had exposed the corporate sector to increasingly complex challenges. The first international companies coming to the country needed assistance to become knowledgeable about both the laws and regulations, as well as the market of a region the reality of which was significantly distinct from the one they were familiar with.<br />
<br />
In the 1970s, the movement became more intense and qualified legal counseling became even more important in the country&rsquo;s business world. Those were the &ldquo;Economic Miracle&rdquo; years, a time of two-digit GDP growth rates and high investments in infrastructure works (energy, ports, power plants, roads, etc). Next, more multinational companies came and contributed to further diversify the business scenario. It was also around that time the world was shaken by the oil crisis. The 1980s and the first half of the 1990s followed, and were hallmarked with the devastating adverse effects of hyperinflation.<br />
<br />
After that period of distress, &ldquo;Plano Real&rdquo; was introduced and offered the foundations to a new cycle of economic development, which was accompanied by political stability and the advance of globalization. The Brazilian economy then opened itself to the world and there came new juridical and regulatory challenges.<br />
<br />
Along all these years, in times of turbulence and in moments of prosperity, we stood by our clients, actively advising them to ride through periods of incredible volatility. To do so, we always positioned our radars to reach the transformations in course in Brazil and worldwide. Along the decades, we structured ourselves to become a full-service law firm while, concurrently, we endeavored to offer a customized service to each and every one of our clients. Clients we have advised, on a multidisciplinary basis, on our four large practice areas: corporate law, labor law, taxation, and litigation.<br />
<br />
It is our belief that in a full-service law firm, customized client service is achievable only by means of the education and culture of lawyers committed to the tradition of the firm. Thus,Peixoto &amp; Cury&rsquo;s&nbsp;timeline is marked by a permanent search for development and qualification of its lawyers. Staff training via continued education in the main Brazilian and foreign schools has always been encouraged and supported. We feel human capital is our most precious asset and the guarantee to preserve, for the next decades, the same success and respectability achieved in more than 66 years of history. This is the legacy for the next generations.</p>

The world was becoming well aware of the effects of the Industrial Revolution as the economies of Europe, the Mediterranean and North America flourished, all thanks to major inventions - the steam engine and electricity - and the movement of ships, caravans and now railroads that transported and sold agricultural products and the most diverse merchandise.</p>

<p>Financing for this intense commercial movement came from bankers, who would one day become legends. Families like the Rothschilds in Europe, the Rockfellers later in America and the Safras in the Middle East began a lineage of financiers, laying the foundation for modern banking based on improved communication and the growing demand for trade between cities.</p>

<p>Particularly intense was the exchange of merchandise between the ports and cities of Europe, such as Paris, Nice, Marseille, Madrid, Barcelona, Naples, Trieste, Genoa and Venice with cities like Alexandria, Athens, Istanbul, Beirut, Damascus, Aleppo, Haifa, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. In this region of the Middle East, members of one Jewish family, known for a long tradition of dedication to financing in gold, earning them, in turn, the Arab name for the color of the precious metal: Safra.</p>

<p>One of the major centers of trade was Aleppo, a city in northwestern Syria. It was there that merchants and goods from the East and West converged. The city was also home to the Safra family, who with their cosmopolitan vocation financed trade and exchanged currencies from several different countries in Asia, Europe and Africa, including the Ottoman Empire&rsquo;s &ldquo;para&rdquo;, the Venice&rsquo;s &ldquo;zecchini&rdquo; and the Maria Theresa&rsquo;s &ldquo;thaler&rdquo; as well as precious metal like silver and gold mainly. In Aleppo, Jacob Safra, the patriarch, was known for his exceptional ability to mentally calculate the conversion of several currencies as well as the financing costs for each and every one of his clients.</p>

<p>In the mid 19th century, Safra Fr&egrave;res et Cie. was founded in Aleppo, a bank bearing the name of the renowned family. In no time at all. the institution earned fame and prestige throughout the Middle East, building a solid reputation as highly selective financiers. Safra Fr&egrave;res et Cie.&rsquo;s strong expansion prompted the family to open branches in Istanbul, Alexandria and Beirut.</p>

<p>Later, in the first half of the 20th century, Beirut was chosen to be the headquarters of the Jacob Safra Bank, founded by the patriarch of what would later become another generation of successful bankers. After World War II, Jacob Safra expanded his business to Europe and later to Latin America and the US.</p>

<p>His offspring likewise gained prominence for their expertise in banking, continuing a long-standing relationship with a community of clients. Today, several of Jacob&rsquo;s grandsons continue the Safra family tradition in diverse economic areas throughout the many countries where the bank thrives.&nbsp;</p>

Established in late 2002 by a small group of seasoned professionals, the sole purpose of the company is to advise tenants with all aspects of their office space requirements. Vortex&rsquo;s Founding Partners, Rick Marek and Scott Grayson each have more than thirty years of experience in the Manhattan office space marketplace. Jordan Mandel joined Vortex as a Principal in 2009 with 13 years of experience and Scott Skorobohaty joined as a Principal in 2012 with over 25 years of experience.

<p>Banco Bradesco was founded in 1943 as a commercial bank under the name &ldquo;Banco Brasileiro de Descontos S.A.&rdquo;. In 1948, we entered a period of intense expansion, which made us becoming Brazil&rsquo;s largest commercial bank in the private sector at the end of the 1960s. We expanded our activities nationwide during the 1970s, conquering Brazilian urban and rural markets. In 1988, we incorporated our housing loan subsidiaries, our investment bank, and our finance company, making us a multiple bank and then we changed our name to Banco Bradesco S.A. We are one of Brazil&rsquo;s largest private banks (non controlled by government) in terms of total assets. We provide a wide range of banking and financial products and services in Brazil and abroad to individuals, small to mid-sized companies and major local and international corporations and institutions. We have the most extensive private-sector branch and service network in Brazil, which permits us to reach a diverse customer base. Our services and products encompass banking operations such as lending and deposit-taking, credit card issuance, consortiums, insurance, leasing, payment collection and processing, pension plans, asset management and brokerage services. According to information published by the Superintend&ecirc;ncia de Seguros Privados (the Superintendency of Private Insurance, which is known as &ldquo;SUSEP&rdquo;) and by the Ag&ecirc;ncia Nacional de Sa&uacute;de Suplementar (the National Agency of Supplemental Health, known as &ldquo;ANS&rdquo;), we are the largest insurance, pension plan and t&iacute;tulos de capitaliza&ccedil;&atilde;o provider in Brazil on a consolidated basis in terms of insurance premiums, pension plan contributions and income from certificated savings plans. At the end of 2008, the balance of the Bradesco Organization&rsquo;s savings accounts totaled R$37.8 billion, a 15.1% growth compared to December 2007, representing an 18.0% market share in the SBPE and securing Bradesco&rsquo;s leadership among all private banks in the Brazilian financial system. The Bank is extremely active in the area of social and environmental responsibility through the Funda&ccedil;&atilde;o Bradesco.This foundation is directed at educating children, young people and adults and provides free education to more than 108,000 pupils in 40 schools located in every Brazilian state and the Federal District.

Our worldwide practice has a proven track record for innovation and providing work of the highest quality to meet the needs of our domestic and international clients. In recognition of the firm&rsquo;s strong global practice, its effectiveness in dealing with the different business cultures of the countries in which it operates, and its success in multiple jurisdictions, Cleary Gottlieb received Chambers &amp; Partners&rsquo; inaugural International Law Firm of the Year award.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
Organized and operated as a single, integrated global partnership (rather than a U.S. firm with a network of overseas offices), Cleary Gottlieb employs&nbsp;approximately&nbsp;1,200 lawyers from more than 50 countries and diverse backgrounds who are admitted to practice in numerous jurisdictions around the world. Since the opening of our first European office in 1949, our legal staff has included European lawyers, most of whom have received a portion of their academic legal training in the United States and many of whom have worked as trainees in one of the firm&rsquo;s U.S. offices. The firm was among the first international law firms to hire and promote non-U.S. lawyers as equal partners around the world.<br />
<br />
Our clients include multinational corporations, international financial institutions, sovereign governments and their agencies, as well as domestic corporations and financial institutions in the countries where our offices are located.

Telefónica Internacional USA, Inc.

<p>Jones Day traces its beginnings to the firm of Blandin &amp; Rice, formed in Cleveland, Ohio in 1893. Edward J. Blandin was one of the most noted litigators in Cleveland; he later was elected President of the Cleveland Bar Association, becoming the first of nine Jones Day partners to be so honored. William Rice was a successful business lawyer. They took on one associate, Frank Ginn, and the Firm rapidly expanded. Tragedy struck in 1910, when Rice was mysteriously murdered while walking home from dinner. The murder was never solved.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
The Firm survived this shock, and in 1913 Frank Ginn became the first of what have been only seven Managing Partners of Jones Day in the century since that time. Other successful lawyers joined the Firm, including the state&rsquo;s leading utilities lawyer, Sheldon Tolles, and a leading railroad lawyer, Tom Hogsett. By 1920, Cleveland had become the fifth largest city in the United States and the home of many large industrial corporations. At that time, the Firm included in its associate ranks two future Managing Partners, Tom Jones and Jack Reavis.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
Among the Firm&rsquo;s most prominent clients were the Van Swearingen Brothers, who controlled the Alleghany Corporation, the Nickle Plate Railroad, the Union Trust Bank, and the Union Station and Terminal Tower complex in downtown Cleveland. John D. Rockefeller was also a significant client, and the Firm became the leading utility law firm in Ohio. It was counsel to the bank credit committee which successfully concluded the reorganization of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, characterized as &quot;the greatest example of equity reorganization.&quot;</p>
