Hogan Lovells opens São Paulo office in Brazil and hires Isabel Costa Carvalho

Hogan Lovells has announced that it has opened an office in São Paulo, Brazil — its second in Brazil, with one already in Rio de Janeiro.

As in Rio de Janeiro, the São Paulo office will operate as a foreign legal consultancy, offering international legal capabilities to Brazilian and non-Brazilian companies and financial institutions that are entering or already doing business throughout Brazil and the rest of Latin America, as well as Brazilian companies that are going abroad.

Adding to the growth of Hogan Lovells’ Brazil practice is the addition of Isabel Costa Carvalho, who joins the firm as a partner resident in São Paulo.  

Costa Carvalho was formerly at Clifford Chance, where she spent more than two decades in the capital markets practice, a group she led in Brazil since 2007.

She advises on international capital markets transactions, including having served as counsel in more than 50 initial public offerings and a variety of debt transactions.
