Brazil – Insurance – Legal 500

A ‘reference on Brazilian insurance law’, DR&A Advogados stands out for its ‘strong commitment to clients’. Following the departure of former name partner Cassio Gama Amaral to Mattos Filho, Veiga Filho, Marrey Jr. e Quiroga Advogados in 2014, the firm raided Amaral’s new team to bolster its practice, hiring Julia Santoro de Camargo Donato and Paulo Octaviano Diniz Junqueira Neto as partners; both were senior associates at Mattos Filho, Veiga Filho, Marrey Jr. e Quiroga Advogados. Name partner Dinir Salvador Rios da Rocha has broad experience across the insurance sector and is regarded by some as ‘the market’s outstanding expert in D&O liability insurance’. He and Danilo Machado are acting for Zurich Seguros in claims involving Eike Batista and Group X. Since research concluded, Paulo Bezerra de Menezes Reiff has joined from Mattos Filho, Veiga Filho, Marrey Jr e Quiroga Advogados to head the litigation department.
