TozziniFreire Advogados in São Paulo have helped Brazilian airline TAM Linhas Aéreas obtain a US$200 million loan from Citibank.
Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP in New York and the São Paulo office of Pinheiro Neto Advogados advised Citibank. The transaction closed on 28 September.
It is thought Clifford Chance LLP in New York also advised TAM Linhas Aéreas, but this could not be confirmed prior to publication.
