CGM Advogados advises Edelman on the acquisition of Distrito

CGM Advogados advised Edelman Group, a leading global communications company with more than 60 offices around the world, on the acquisition of Distrito Relações Governamentais, a Brazilian full-service consultancy firm that provides integrated government relations services to public and private stakeholders, with offices in Brasília and São Paulo.

The transaction bolsters Edelman’s presence in Latin America and allows it to provide a broader range of services to its clients. As part of the transaction, the selling shareholders of Distrito became executives of Edelman in Brazil.

CGM Advogados relied on partners Martim Machado (pictured left) and Ricardo Marletti Debatin da Silveira (pictured right).

Edelman was also advised by Jones Day.

The selling shareholders were advised by Mattos Filho.
