Lefosse launches a new Brasilia-based office and bolsters Competition and Infrastructure practices with new hires

In late April, renowned full-service law firm Lefosse Advogados announced the launch of its new office in Brasília, as well as the hire of two new partners, Paula Farani Azevedo Silveira and Miriam Signor, in a move that bolsters the firm’s national presence and strengthens its Competition and Antitrust and Infrastructure practices.  

Paula Azevedo has over 15 years of experience in the legal market and a vast know-how in competition law and international trade. She is a former administrative council member of the Administrative Council for Economic Defense (CADE), the Brazilian Competition authority, as well as has previously worked for major law firms Trench Rossi Watanabe and Veirano Advogados. Academically, she holds a Bachelor of Laws from Centro Universitário de Brasília (CEUB) and an LL.M. in International Economic Law from the Georgetown University (USA). Her arrival at Lefosse marks the institutional expansion of the firm, as Ms. Azevedo will be based in Brasília, where CADE is located.  

My arrival marks the expansion of Lefosse to Brasília, with a focus on international competition law. I am motivated to work with a brilliant team, recognized for their specialized and full-service performance.

Miriam Signor joins Lefosse as its new Infrastructure partner and head of its Project Finance and Project Development department, with over a decade of experience in the sector, coming from Stocche Forbes Advogados. Academically, she holds a Master’s degree in Securities Laws and Regulation and an LL.M. from the New York University (USA). 

I'm arriving at Lefosse to meet the growing demand for expertise in all stages of developing Infrastructure projects, which require a complete platform of advice and work in synergy with various practices, characteristics of Lefosse and its professionals, whom I now join.

Lefosse now has over 50 skilled partners and offices in São Paulo (SP), Rio de Janeiro (RJ) and Brasília (DF).
