jones dayJones Day said Monday it is opening an office in São Paulo, Brazil.  It will be the firm’s 33rd office and second in Latin America, joining Mexico City.

Brazil is home to one of the world’s fastest-growing economies and has become a point of interest for several firms this year.

The office will launch as a foreign legal consultancy, as required by the Brazilian Bar Association (OAB), and will open as soon as all regulatory approvals are obtained.  Jones Day will open its own office, with no association or alliance with any local law firm.
