Shearman & Sterling adds capital markets lawyer in São Paulo

Shearman & Sterling announced that Roberta Cherman has returned to the firm, this time as a counsel in the São Paulo office.

Cherman was an associate at the New York office of Shearman & Sterling from 2000 through 2007. She now returns to the firm from Itaú Unibanco, where she has been in-house legal counsel since 2008.

Cherman worked with Itaú Unibanco, Brazil’s largest privately held bank, in their Lisbon, London and São Paulo offices. She has over than 15 years of experience in equity and debt capital markets, debt restructuring, syndicated private financing, acquisition financing and project finance.

“We are thrilled to welcome Roberta back to the firm” said Antonia Stolper, Americas regional managing partner at Shearman & Sterling. “Her arrival reflects our continued investment in Brazil as it emerges from its recession and is important to us as Latin America continues to be a core focus of our firm, with the market presenting new opportunities in a variety of areas in which Roberta can use her broad experience to help us further develop.”
