Dear clients and business partners,
It is with great pleasure that we announce the admission of another partner to our law firm. Already well-known and recognized in the market, Caio Cossermelli has now joined our Capital Markets practice area. His arrival will further strengthen our work in this area, which was marked by a high number of initial public share offerings (IPOs) in Brazil during 2020. Forecasts indicate that this is expected to continue throughout 2021.
A law graduate at the Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo, Caio also holds a Master of Laws from the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in Chicago. Possessing extensive experience in IPOs and follow-ons, he advises clients in registering publicly-held companies, establishing securities distribution programs (such as units) as well as in everyday corporate and regulatory activities. Caio also advises on mergers and acquisitions, debt and securitization offers, financing and structured transactions (including infrastructure projects), along with international transactions across multiple jurisdictions involving loans and securities.
Mattos Filho leads the rankings for transactions in capital markets in Brazil, with the largest exclusively dedicated legal team in this area. Caio’s arrival reinforces the firm’s commitment to continue growing in light of the prospects for expansion within the area, as we assist our clients in navigating planned regulatory changes within the capital markets sector. We will thus be able to continue offering complete and comprehensive legal advice, with a focus on innovative and multidisciplinary projects.
