Sao Paulo-based law firm Ramos e Zuanon Advogados has appointed José Manassero to the position of partner.

Manassero has extensive experience in corporate and project finance, as well as infrastructure, capital markets and debt restructuring.

With his appointment to the senior role, the firm will now be renamed to Ramos, Zuanon e Manassero Advogados.

Manassero comments to GTR: “RZ Advogados is a very entrepreneurial firm, which plans to expand its corporate finance practice, but without losing the focus on quality and specialised work that led the firm to becoming a well-renowned boutique law firm in the Brazilian financial market. I was really impressed with the quality of the people working at Ramos e Zuanon while sitting at the other side of the table on recent transactions and after talking with Christian Ramos and Fabio Zuanon about their plans for the firm it made perfect sense to join this qualified team.”

“Reacting to the trends and demands of the Brazilian economy and of our clients, the arrival of José Manassero strengthens and increases our presence in infrastructure and structured finance,” adds a statement issued by the firm.

Ramos, Zuanon e Manassero Advogados was established in Brazil in 2000 with a focus on international structured trade transactions, project finance, M&A, capital markets, corporate restructuring, credit recovery and civil and business litigation.
