The inaugural Chambers and Partners Brazil Legal Guide 2022 has placed Kobre & Kim highly in its ranking of “Corporate Crime & Investigation (International Firms)” in recognition of the firm’s “extensive experience in cross-border disputes and investigations.”
The publication noted that the firm’s “seasoned team is well regarded for representing individuals in high-profile and multi-jurisdiction matters, including enforcement strategies and asset recovery campaigns, as well as DOJ and SEC investigations.” Chambers adds that “corporate clients also benefit from the lawyers' knowledge of fraud, money laundering and FCPA investigations.”
Testimonials cited by Chambers note the firm has a “very qualified and experienced team” that “always find creative ways to deliver solutions” and has an “exceptional ability to handle complex cases.” Another noted Kobre & Kim is “truly experienced in representing individuals, which is something uncommon for international U.S. firms” and is “very important in a market like Brazil.”
In addition, both Martin De Luca and Gabriela Ruiz were individually recognized by Chambers. Mr. De Luca is noted to be “a strong player in the corporate crime and investigation field, particularly well regarded for his experience representing individuals in high-profile cross-border disputes and investigations.” Ms. Ruiz is “held in high esteem by clients and peers alike for her notable work representing clients, both corporate and individual, in sophisticated disputes and investigations.”
