Conyers Hosts Launch Function in Brazil

Over 100 of São Paulo’s senior legal and business executives attended a launch function held by offshore financial law firm Conyers Dill & Pearman, in celebration of the formation of their new Brazil partnership.

The event was held on at the newly re-opened Casa Fasano Jardins on Haddock Lobo.

While addressing the audience Conyers Chairman, John Collis, spoke of the firm’s international growth. "Over the past decade, Conyers has seen a marked increase in the use of offshore structures by South and Latin American clients, as well as clients seeking to do business in those regions. The decision to open in São Paulo is part of the firm’s strategy of positioning itself in the world’s leading financial centres in order to provide responsive, timely and thorough advice to clients."

“We are pleased to have the regulatory approval to move ahead with the São Paulo office, which will facilitate even greater personal contact with our clients.”
Alan Dickson, managing partner of Conyers’ São Paulo office, said.

The new São Paulo office is located on Rua Jeronimo Da Veiga, 384 and will provide general corporate, company and commercial advice, with particular emphasis on investment funds, public company listings, initial public offerings and holding company incorporations providing clients with direct access to the jurisdictions of the Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands, Bermuda and Mauritius.
