Demarest is one of the most renowned law firms in Brazil and ranks among the largest firms in Latin America. Throughout its history, providing services in the most diverse practice areas of law, Demarest has always maintained a commitment to providing legal services of the highest standards of quality and excellence.

Demarest was one of the main law firms that helped design and structure the transaction, which was extremely complex and involved much regulatory and legal discussion, in Brazil, Cayman and in the US. The Demarest team was proactive and very responsive to find solutions and innovate in all challenges encountered. They also led important parts of the deal.”

Restructuring and insolvency
They are responsive, pro deal and hands-on and produce high-quality work.”

Availability 24/7, unique expertise, and deep knowledge of cross-border insolvency procedures.

Demarest navigated me through the Brazilian restructuring landscape and provided me with safe advice in an area that I was not familiar with – Demarest's guidance was critical to our internal decision-making process concerning the transaction.

Demarest has the most efficient restructuring team. Its partner Guilherme Bechara provides an excellent service to Latam. He is very knowledgeable and available 24/7.
