M&A

"The team is very hands-on, and we can count on quality time, from the senior partner to the more junior lawyers. The senior partner (in this case Frederico Buosi) and the senior associate (Jorge Kou) are very skilled in business and management and this characteristic provides very valuable insights and a solid rationale for their recommendations.
