Claudio Lampert graduated from Rio de Janeiro State University (1989) and has an LLM from the University of Miami (1998). He worked at Baker & McKenzie (1992-1997) and Greenberg Traurig (1997-1998) before joining Veirano Advogados in Rio de Janeiro, where he led the infrastructure and projects practices for more than 10 years.
Claudio has expertise in project development, infrastructure deals, project finance and M&A in the energy, mining, logistics, and oil and gas sectors. His experience includes, among other matters, regulatory development of greenfield businesses; the formation of special purpose vehicles and capital structures of project companies (via debt or equity); construction agreements; equipment supply agreements; capital markets; and regulation.
Between 2007 and 2012, he was an executive officer of LLX Logística, the largest private integrated logistics project in Latin America, where he was able to develop and head into operation with two super ports in the State of Rio de Janeiro: Porto Sudeste, a bulk terminal with capacity to handle 50 million tons of iron ore per year; and Porto do Açu, a multi-cargo terminal with the capacity to handle bulk, general cargo, and oil trans-shipment and storage. At LLX he also led the firm's institutional work in changing the legal framework of the ports sector, which ultimately led to the enactment of Law 12,815/13, the new Port Statute that currently guides investments in the sector.
After leaving LLX, he spent some years as the partner responsible for the infrastructure and project finance areas of Lefosse Advogados, a São Paulo-based corporate and capital markets firm.
