Firm Overview

A boutique firm with a sole focus on restructuring and insolvency areas, Lollato Lopes Rangel Ribeiro provides a high level of attention in delivering strategical and innovative solutions for its clients.

Well-established for 30 years, the firm has offices in different regions of Brazil and has gathered experience on cross-border matters and litigation insolvency-related matters, in both middle-market and high-profile cases.

The firm has a strong story representing companies in the bankruptcy process, with more than 200 restructuring cases on behalf of debtors. It is proud that the majority of its clients negotiated their debts and began to be profitable institutions again. Recent ongoing cases involve “Grupo Thá”, established in 1895 and one of the oldest and most important construction groups in Brazil, as well as the Brazilian branch of a multinational pharmaceutical group.

The firm has worked with clients of several economic sectors, such as banking institutions, telecom, real estate, agribusiness, among others. It also advises local and international investors, shareholders and creditors in bankruptcy proceedings and distressed transactions.

The team is highly specialised in insolvency, judicial/extrajudicial reorganisation, as well as strategic litigation and arbitration. The firm has a solid reputation in being always ready to seek the best strategy for the client based on efficiency and personalised service. It is the firm's view that all cases should be personally handled by the partners so that their experience is applied to all aspects of the cases. This allows Lollato Lopes Rangel Ribeiro to treat clients with a strategic approach that goes beyond just the normal legal handing of a typical restructuring case, meaning being involved in transactions that run parallel, not just to the legal work but to the business itself, such as securing new money, assets sales, and corporate restructuring.
