  • Congratulations to Chadbourne & Parke for having Collyer Bristow to the firm. I'm pretty sure that it's going to be great addition. Good luck!

  • It is common knowledge that Brazil is one of the fastest growing economies. There can only be a handful of native Brazilian lawyers working in London who are dual qualified - even less who focus on advising large Brazilian banks, corporates, high networths and have the necessary following of work to interest the larger law firms. This seems like a timely, interesting and intelligent hire. Whilst the MC, SC and elite US have great people, they don't always have the answers as far as recruitment is concerned and in these circumstances, firms do have to think outside the box. Mortisha, your sarcasm tells me that you have a limited and unimaginative view of the legal market.

  • I assume the above comment is a joke. Brazil is predicted to grow at less than 2%. People rushing into brazil now for a piece of the pie have missed the boat. Turkey is a better bet, but by the time most realise that, that boat will have also left.

  • ... have to wait and see what happens. It has been well publicised that Brazil has been going through a period of weak growth and its rate has been cut to as low as 1.5% by the likes of Fitch. However, Fitch also predicts growth in Brazil for 2013 as do many others who say there are signs that the market will re-accelerate. The slow down there has not deterred investors attracted by the build up for 2014 World Cup and Olympics in 2016. The country, one of the worlds largest economies, still received $40 billion in foreign direct investment during the current slow down.
