Hogan Lovells named as the Only International Firm Among the Top Investigation Teams in Brazil

São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, 28 November 2017 – Global Investigation Review (GIR) has named the Hogan Lovells team in the firm’s São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro offices among its Top Investigation Teams of 2017 in Brazil. Firms featured on the list were singled out for investing in their anti-corruption practices early to meet increasing demands of the 2014 Clean Companies Act and the ongoing Operation Car Wash investigations. Hogan Lovells was the only international firm included on this prestigious list of boutique and full service law firms operating in Brazil.

Hogan Lovells' IWFC’s Brazil practice is fully integrated with our global team which has been ranked this year third in the world for internal and government-led investigations by the prestigious GIR Awards.

Citing the firm’s substantial cross-border investigations practice, GIR noted that the team predominantly runs investigations for large multinationals in the energy, infrastructure, health, and consumer goods industries with subsidiaries in Brazil. Among recent highlights, GIR pointed to the group’s work on behalf of Eletrobras, Brazil’s state-owned electricity company, assisting with a FCPA investigation.

Individually, GIR singled out Isabel Carvalho as head of the Brazilian investigations practice and her work advising companies on cross-border investigations, merger and acquisition due diligence, and organizing anti-corruption compliance programs.

GIR provides comprehensive analysis of developments in international investigations through daily news on global enforcement actions and legal developments, surveys, and practical guides. Coverage extends to government agency investigations and internal corporate investigations of issues relating to international anti-bribery and corruption, financial services misconduct, antitrust, fraud, money laundering, and tax controversy.
