Levy & Salomão Advogados has been shortlisted at the GCR Awards as one of the finalists for the "Regional firm of the year – Americas" category, while partner Mariana Tavares de Araujo is a nominee for "Dealmaker of the year" in this year’s edition.
GCR highlights the following: “Levy & Salomão was involved in about 20% of the deals that CADE’s tribunal reviewed in 2019. It secured quicker-than-normal reviews for deals that were not fast tracked by CADE, while also representing firms on a range of deals that were fast. In investigations, the firm secured a rare interim measure for an Italian bank, under which the bank changed a policy on receivables to preserve competition in banking markets. It also represented clients in settlement and leniency negotiations, advancing innovative methodologies for determining fines in those negotiations.”.
The category “dealmaker of the year”, in which Mariana has been nominated, is for lawyers “whose superior knowledge, practical judgement and negotiation skills in merger clearance matters in 2019 demonstrate that he or she is among the very best in the field”, according to GCR.
Votes can for this year edition be casted here until February 28.
