On Wednesday, June 19, Fox Horan & Camerini, LLP (“FHC”) was privileged to host and sponsor, along with its co-sponsor Tradewind Finance, a business seminar organized by Ms. Su Jung Ko of Golden Hawk Consulting at the FHC offices in the heart of Manhattan. The featured speaker at the seminar was Bernardo Weaver, senior consultant to the World Bank and a professor at the Georgetown University McDonough School of Business. Other speakers included David Camerini and Michael Hagan, both partners at FHC who practice in the infrastructure space. Kathleen Kundar, a litigator and of counsel at FHC, discussed bringing claims in the international context. In addition, Ms. Su Jung Ko discussed the volume of pan-East Asian investment in Brazil across a number of industrial and financial sectors.
Executives and representatives of global companies participated in cutting edge presentations focused on investment opportunities in Brazil, including discussions on the appeal of investing in “brownfield” airports, renovating infrastructure and restructuring operations of outdated airports in emerging markets, and its parallels to many industries in Brazil. Mr. Bernardo Weaver of the World Bank provided a power point presentation on the numerous successes in brownfield infrastructure renovation, including a number of major Latin American airports. On other subjects, participants discussed the attractive asset valuations across Brazil due to the strong liquidity needs currently prevalent across the country. In an interactive format, participants exchanged ideas on potential deal structures with presenters and other invitees throughout the event. Substantial potential opportunities were identified for financing and development across sectors through the employment of various models, including PPP, multi-lateral financial institutions and private source capital.
