Souto Correa and Jones Day steer education M&A in Brazil

Souto Correa and Jones Day represented Spanish education group Academia AMIR in the negotiation to buy 100% of the shares of Revalidando Educação and Grupo Educando.

These companies are key players in the Brazilian market of preparation courses for the national medical diploma revalidation exam (Revalida).

Academia AMIR is part of the Spanish group Ágora Educación, which offers high-standard health education, created specifically to prepare doctors for medical residency through on-site and distance learning courses. Despite operating in several countries, including Latin America, Academia AMIR had no operations in Brazil before the transaction.

Souto Correa’s team included partners Mauricio Paschoal (pictured top left) and Raquel Stein (pictured top right); and associates Isabelle Bueno, Rafaela Kern, and Leila Fonini.

Jones Day was led by partners (pictured bottom from left to right) Luis Riesgo (Spain) and Artur Badra (Brazil).
