Pereira Neto | Macedo is formed by partners and associate lawyers who have worked together since 1996. The firm’s growth in the past years is due to its decisive and successful participation in many sophisticated transactions and important lawsuits.
The firm is active in the full range of business areas, such as mergers and acquisitions, contracts, antitrust, regulatory and administrative law, foreign investment, agribusiness, labor relations, tax law and court-supervised reorganization and bankruptcy. The firm also has significant experience in litigation and alternative dispute resolution, including civil liability and collective actions.
Pereira Neto | Macedo has a unique manner to explore the various areas of law that affect business activities, due to the experience of its partners and key associates, who have previously worked in highly qualified Brazilian law firms, national and multinational corporations, investment banks, government agencies and global law and accountancy firms. Moreover, the firm is able to provide superior service due to a lower associate/partner ratio and a higher proportion of senior associates (in comparison to other Brazilian firms).
Pereira Neto | Macedo offers creative and efficient solutions to meet the specific needs of its clients. For this purpose, each case is assigned to a team headed by at least one partner, assisted by experienced associates, to provide service of superior quality both from a legal and business perspective.
“Less than a decade in, this noteworthy young firm has shown it can compete against, and take work from, much bigger and more experienced rivals. It is run by a set of young but well-regarded partners, with a particular expertise in competition and regulatory law, but an increasing set of finance and other deals as well. It also has an agility and energy in its approach which some have begun to miss in the giant firms at the top of the market – and Pereira Neto | Macedo intends to take full advantage of that.”
