On June 25-26, Chadbourne & Parke LLP participated in Bonds & Loans Brazil, a Brazil focused banking and finance conference held at Hotel Unique in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Charles Johnson, head of Chadbourne's Sao Paulo office, moderated a panel discussing the financing of Brazilian infrastructure and energy projects, and the challenges to accessing capital amidst a changing market environment.
"Chadbourne is pleased to have been a sponsor of this event," said Chadbourne partner Charles Johnson. "It was great to be part of such an informed and dynamic discussion about some of the key challenges and opportunities debt market professionals face in the Latin American markets. The conference provided Chadbourne with a valuable opportunity to share our expertise in the region and to strengthen and expand our local networks."
