On March 1, 2010, the firm, which was previously named Chermont, Mussi & Sandri Advogados, terminated its association with Mussi & Sandri Advogados, a São Paulo law firm, and changed its name to Chermont, Lauria, Florêncio & Carvalho Advogados. It has correspondent law firms in the main Brazilian capitals, as well as in Europe, United States, Japan and in a number of Latin American countries. The firm is formed by a well-integrated group of attorneys coming from traditional law firms in Rio de Janeiro who have joined forces to provide high quality services in the Corporate and Tax Law areas. The firm's partners have advised clients in countless major business deals such as the installation in Brazil of important commercial and industrial companies, financial institutions and mining companies, the purchase and sale of aircrafts and ships and the attachment of vessels. They have large experience in the areas of petroleum, shipping, aviation, agriculture, food products, tourism, sports, music recording and publishing, newspapers, magazine and books and insurance, as well as in civil and tax litigation.
