Proskauer launches in São Paulo

New York firm Proskauer Rose has launched a São Paulo office, marking its first physical entrance into Latin America.

Proskauer corporate partners Antonio Piccirillo and Carlos Martinez, who is also head of the firm’s Latin America practice, will head the firm’s ninth office.

Proskauer also has offices in North America and Paris.

Two years ago the firm broke off merger negotiations with Richards Butler, which has since merged with Reed Smith.
