Chadbourne & Parke has hired Collyer Bristow’s international business chief Silvia Fazio to head a Brazil desk in the US firm’s London office.
Fazio will join the firm as international partner and will be based in São Paulo and London, where she will establish a Brazil desk for UK and European clients active in the country.
This won’t be the first time the corporate lawyer has opened a Brazil desk in the UK - while at Collyer Bristow Fazio established Brazil and Italy desks for the firm. She qualified at the Brazilian Bar, São Paulo in 1997 and at the Milanese Bar and in England and Wales in 2001.
“Qualified to practise law in Brazil, the UK, Italy and Portugal, and fluent in five languages, Silvia is a truly international lawyer whose skills and experience will complement and enhance our corporate practice globally,” said Chadbourne’s managing partner Andrew Giaccia in a statement.
The New York firm obtained its licence to practise as a foreign legal consultancy in São Paulo in 2010. Brazil has experienced a surge in growth in recent years and was recently named the sixth largest economy in the world.
