<p><em>Alcides e Rosaura Diniz Foundation &ndash; ARD Foundation is a Public Charity 501 C 3 with the status of tax exemption which mission is to raise funds for cancer research - focused on identifying genetic causes of specific cancers, understanding how genetics contribute to the disease, and using that understanding to help develop better prevention and treatment strategies.</em></p>

<p><em>We believe that through the use of genomics and immunotherapy we will be able to not only promote the early detection and diagnoses of neoplasms, but also develop top of the line technologies to treat cancer effectively. </em></p>

<p><em>ARD Foundation&rsquo;s mission is to fund oncology research focused on the following areas:</em></p>

<p><em>Genomics as a focus for development of new techniques to detect neoplasms, and the development of new therapies. We want to promote and reduce the cost of genetic sequencing with the hopes of improving early detection and diagnoses as well as the discovery of genetic mutations in the neoplastic cells that make it possible for the development of new treatments against certain specific mutations.</em></p>

<p><em>Immunotherapy that stimulates and trains the patience&rsquo;s own immune system to fight against the cancer cells. The CAR-T cells are the patient&rsquo;s own lymphocytes T (natural defense cells) that are genetically altered in a lab to gain receptors that detect and attack the tumor.&nbsp; In other words, using genetic engineering, certain genes are inserted in the patient&rsquo;s defense cells and those cells are transformed into &ldquo;guided missiles&rdquo; that detect and destroy the neoplastic cells.</em></p>

<p><em>The ARD Foundation was created on January of 2017, and in ten months we already achieved the following:</em></p>

<p><em>-Help in the purchase of a machine RetCan,&nbsp; that diagnoses retinoblastoma for a hospital in Minas Gerais, Brazil.</em></p>

<p><em>-Partnered with the Laborat&oacute;rio Recepta Biopharma in S&atilde;o Paulo, where we will help finance research so that in the future those in need can have better access to treatment at a reasonable cost.</em></p>

<p><em>-The donation of funds for Dr. Reiner Brentjens&rsquo; CAR-T cells research at the MSKCC and for Dr. Karina Eterovic&rsquo;s pediatric brain tumor research and development and implementation of a new immune-oncology assay in her at the MD Anderson. </em></p>

<p>&nbsp;</p>

<p><em>The vision of the ARD Foundation is that high-impact breakthrough and game-changing discoveries in genomic and immunotherapy will lead to successful cancer prevention and treatment for everyone, everywhere.</em></p>

Today, with over 200 lawyers practicing in offices across the country, we regularly serve as lead counsel in the most significant and highest profile disputes in the world.

<p>Our history began in 1983, when Pactual was founded in Rio de Janeiro as a brokerage.</p>

<p>Since its inception, Pactual has been run as a partnership, via an association established between its founding partners. In the ensuing 13 years, the company has grown considerably, becoming a fully-fledged bank with several offices throughout Brazil.</p>

<p>In May 2006, UBS AG purchased Pactual, creating &quot;UBS Pactual&quot;, the division of UBS in Latin American countries. Andr&eacute; Esteves became CEO of all of UBS&#39; Latin American operations.</p>

<p>In July 2008, Andr&eacute; Esteves and a group of partners left UBS Pactual to create a new company based on the same culture they had previously implemented at Banco Pactual. They were joined by Persio Arida and some former managing directors of UBS, and in October 2008 they created BTG, a global investment company with offices in S&atilde;o Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, London, New York and Hong Kong.</p>

<p>On April 19 2009, BTG acquired UBS Pactual. The transaction was finalized in September 2009, resulting in the creation of BTG Pactual. With the acquisition, the partners who left the Bank in 2008 were reunited with the partners who decided to stay on at the institution throughout the period following the bank&rsquo;s sale to UBS.</p>

<p>In December 2010, we issued US$1.8bn in capital to a consortium of renowned international investors and partners, representing 18.65% of BTG Pactual. The consortium provided us with a relevant group of investors, consolidating and expanding our global network.</p>

<p>In 2011, we purchased a 37.64% stake in Banco PanAmericano, comprising 51.00% of its voting shares and 21.97% of its non-voting shares.</p>

<p>In 2012, we acquired Celfin, the leading brokerage in Chile, which also operates in Peru and Colombia, and Bolsa y Renta, the largest brokerage (in equity volumes) in Colombia. Celfin has a broad range of products and services in the areas of Investment Banking, Products and Financial Services, Asset Management and Wealth Management.</p>

<p>We also held our IPO in 2012, raising R$3.65bn and making us one of the 20 largest listed companies on the BM&amp;FBovespa. This operation gives us more liquidity and reinforces our solid, fast-growing business platform.</p>

<p>In 2013, Banco BTG Pactual, via its subsidiary BTG Pactual Timberland Investments Group LLC, acquired timberland management contracts from Regions Timberland Group (&quot;RTG&quot;), a division of Regions Bank.

<p>Since our founding in 1939, Strasburger has been recognized as one of the premier law firms in Texas, both in the courtroom and in the board room. Our wide-ranging areas of practice, office locations, and size allows the firm to handle the needs of start-ups, mid-sized and Fortune 500 companies, particularly those based in Texas. With experience in over 30 practice areas, Strasburger goes beyond providing comprehensive legal services. Our attorneys devote the time to learn the nuances and drivers of clients&rsquo; businesses, helping them identify and take advantage of new opportunities within their industries.</p>

<p>In business, we execute strategic transactions, restructure business units, provide sound tax counsel, protect intellectual assets, undertake financing transactions, implement corporate governance measures, resolve complex disputes, and advise and train our clients to make informed decisions that affect their companies&rsquo; bottom lines. In every matter or transaction, we strive to work closely with our clients, whose unique knowledge and insights allow us to not only address their needs, but anticipate them.</p>

<p>Despite our reputation as one of the preeminent trial firms in the Southwest, our attorneys devote significant efforts to keep clients out of the court room. However, when litigation becomes inevitable, we develop strategic and carefully assessed approaches to ensure our clients are protected from all ramifications beyond the immediate issues. Our objective is to produce the most favorable outcome possible while working in a seamless manner, making the experience less overwhelming for our clients.</p>

<p>A leading international law firm with 16 offices located in major financial centers around the world, Cleary Gottlieb Steen &amp; Hamilton LLP has helped shape the globalization of the legal profession for more than 65 years. Our worldwide practice has a proven track record for innovation and providing work of the highest quality to meet the needs of our domestic and international clients. In recognition of the firm&rsquo;s strong global practice, its effectiveness in dealing with the different business cultures of the countries in which it operates, and its success in multiple jurisdictions, Cleary Gottlieb received Chambers &amp; Partners&rsquo; inaugural International Law Firm of the Year award.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
Organized and operated as a single, integrated global partnership (rather than a U.S. firm with a network of overseas offices), Cleary Gottlieb employs&nbsp;approximately&nbsp;1,200 lawyers from more than 50 countries and diverse backgrounds who are admitted to practice in numerous jurisdictions around the world. Since the opening of our first European office in 1949, our legal staff has included European lawyers, most of whom have received a portion of their academic legal training in the United States and many of whom have worked as trainees in one of the firm&rsquo;s U.S. offices. The firm was among the first international law firms to hire and promote non-U.S. lawyers as equal partners around the world.<br />
<br />
Our clients include multinational corporations, international financial institutions, sovereign governments and their agencies, as well as domestic corporations and financial institutions in the countries where our offices are located. Although each of our 16 offices has its own practice, our&nbsp;&ldquo;one firm&rdquo; approach to the practice of law offers clients in any office the ability to access the full resources of all of our offices and lawyers worldwide to the extent their matters so require.</p>

<p>Hogan Lovells&rsquo; Latin America practice is a leader in the dynamic Latin American region, often advising on some of the region&rsquo;s most complex and ground-breaking matters. The team regularly receives top rankings and recognition from <em>Latin Lawyer</em>, <em>Chambers Latin America</em>, <em>Chambers Global</em>, <em>LatinFinance</em>, <em>International Financial Law Review</em>, <em>Financial Times</em>, <em>Euromoney</em>, <em>Global Arbitration Review</em>, and <em>Legal 500 Latin America </em>for their work in nearly all major practices and industries. Our clients around the region and the globe rely on us for a broad array of country-specific and cross-border services, and particularly for transactions, proceedings, and matters that cross at the intersection of business and government.</p>

William Rice was a successful business lawyer. They took on one associate, Frank Ginn, and the Firm rapidly expanded. Tragedy struck in 1910, when Rice was mysteriously murdered while walking home from dinner. The murder was never solved.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
The Firm survived this shock, and in 1913 Frank Ginn became the first of what have been only seven Managing Partners of Jones Day in the century since that time. Other successful lawyers joined the Firm, including the state&rsquo;s leading utilities lawyer, Sheldon Tolles, and a leading railroad lawyer, Tom Hogsett. By 1920, Cleveland had become the fifth largest city in the United States and the home of many large industrial corporations. At that time, the Firm included in its associate ranks two future Managing Partners, Tom Jones and Jack Reavis.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
Among the Firm&rsquo;s most prominent clients were the Van Swearingen Brothers, who controlled the Alleghany Corporation, the Nickle Plate Railroad, the Union Trust Bank, and the Union Station and Terminal Tower complex in downtown Cleveland. John D. Rockefeller was also a significant client, and the Firm became the leading utility law firm in Ohio. It was counsel to the bank credit committee which successfully concluded the reorganization of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, characterized as &quot;the greatest example of equity reorganization.&quot;</p>

<p>oday, Brazil enjoys a prominent global status. One of the largest world economies, the country holds a significant consumer market, consolidated institutions, and there are business opportunities in several sectors.<br />
<br />
This is a situation very different from the one the country faced in 1948, when&nbsp;Peixoto &amp; Cury Advogados&nbsp;was founded in the city of S&atilde;o Paulo under the name of&nbsp;Castro e Barros Advogados&nbsp;and the leadership of Duarte Vaz Pacheco do Canto e Castro, an eminent Brazilian law scholar of his time.&nbsp; Back then, the Brazilian industry was embryonic - if compared to the development achieved subsequently - and the economy was taking its first steps towards internationalization given the arrival of some pioneer multinationals, especially in the pharmaceutical, automotive, infrastructure, machinery and equipment industries. The following years brought along the so-called Golden Years, represented by&nbsp;Bossa&nbsp;Nova. In the sports arena, euphoria reigned after the World Soccer Championships in 1958 and 1962.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
Amidst that environment,&nbsp;Peixoto &amp; Cury&nbsp;was consolidating itself in the practice of law. Its mission was to be a law firm able to assist its clients to understand that new flourishing Brazil, including in the light of the new foreign capital law enacted in 1962. After all, the economic, social and political transformations had exposed the corporate sector to increasingly complex challenges. The first international companies coming to the country needed assistance to become knowledgeable about both the laws and regulations, as well as the market of a region the reality of which was significantly distinct from the one they were familiar with.<br />
<br />
In the 1970s, the movement became more intense and qualified legal counseling became even more important in the country&rsquo;s business world. Those were the &ldquo;Economic Miracle&rdquo; years, a time of two-digit GDP growth rates and high investments in infrastructure works (energy, ports, power plants, roads, etc). Next, more multinational companies came and contributed to further diversify the business scenario. It was also around that time the world was shaken by the oil crisis. The 1980s and the first half of the 1990s followed, and were hallmarked with the devastating adverse effects of hyperinflation.<br />
<br />
After that period of distress, &ldquo;Plano Real&rdquo; was introduced and offered the foundations to a new cycle of economic development, which was accompanied by political stability and the advance of globalization. The Brazilian economy then opened itself to the world and there came new juridical and regulatory challenges.<br />
<br />
Along all these years, in times of turbulence and in moments of prosperity, we stood by our clients, actively advising them to ride through periods of incredible volatility. To do so, we always positioned our radars to reach the transformations in course in Brazil and worldwide. Along the decades, we structured ourselves to become a full-service law firm while, concurrently, we endeavored to offer a customized service to each and every one of our clients. Clients we have advised, on a multidisciplinary basis, on our four large practice areas: corporate law, labor law, taxation, and litigation.<br />
<br />
It is our belief that in a full-service law firm, customized client service is achievable only by means of the education and culture of lawyers committed to the tradition of the firm. Thus,Peixoto &amp; Cury&rsquo;s&nbsp;timeline is marked by a permanent search for development and qualification of its lawyers. Staff training via continued education in the main Brazilian and foreign schools has always been encouraged and supported. We feel human capital is our most precious asset and the guarantee to preserve, for the next decades, the same success and respectability achieved in more than 66 years of history. This is the legacy for the next generations.</p>

<p>In the financial sector, the past has an unparalleled importance in determining the present and providing solid guarantees for the future.</p>

<p>It was the 19th century and the memory of Napoleon&rsquo;s military campaigns was still fresh in the minds of Europeans. The world was becoming well aware of the effects of the Industrial Revolution as the economies of Europe, the Mediterranean and North America flourished, all thanks to major inventions - the steam engine and electricity - and the movement of ships, caravans and now railroads that transported and sold agricultural products and the most diverse merchandise.</p>

<p>Financing for this intense commercial movement came from bankers, who would one day become legends. Families like the Rothschilds in Europe, the Rockfellers later in America and the Safras in the Middle East began a lineage of financiers, laying the foundation for modern banking based on improved communication and the growing demand for trade between cities.</p>

<p>Particularly intense was the exchange of merchandise between the ports and cities of Europe, such as Paris, Nice, Marseille, Madrid, Barcelona, Naples, Trieste, Genoa and Venice with cities like Alexandria, Athens, Istanbul, Beirut, Damascus, Aleppo, Haifa, Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. In this region of the Middle East, members of one Jewish family, known for a long tradition of dedication to financing in gold, earning them, in turn, the Arab name for the color of the precious metal: Safra.</p>

<p>One of the major centers of trade was Aleppo, a city in northwestern Syria. It was there that merchants and goods from the East and West converged. The city was also home to the Safra family, who with their cosmopolitan vocation financed trade and exchanged currencies from several different countries in Asia, Europe and Africa, including the Ottoman Empire&rsquo;s &ldquo;para&rdquo;, the Venice&rsquo;s &ldquo;zecchini&rdquo; and the Maria Theresa&rsquo;s &ldquo;thaler&rdquo; as well as precious metal like silver and gold mainly. In Aleppo, Jacob Safra, the patriarch, was known for his exceptional ability to mentally calculate the conversion of several currencies as well as the financing costs for each and every one of his clients.</p>

<p>In the mid 19th century, Safra Fr&egrave;res et Cie. was founded in Aleppo, a bank bearing the name of the renowned family. In no time at all. the institution earned fame and prestige throughout the Middle East, building a solid reputation as highly selective financiers. Safra Fr&egrave;res et Cie.&rsquo;s strong expansion prompted the family to open branches in Istanbul, Alexandria and Beirut.</p>

<p>Later, in the first half of the 20th century, Beirut was chosen to be the headquarters of the Jacob Safra Bank, founded by the patriarch of what would later become another generation of successful bankers. After World War II, Jacob Safra expanded his business to Europe and later to Latin America and the US.</p>

<p>His offspring likewise gained prominence for their expertise in banking, continuing a long-standing relationship with a community of clients. Today, several of Jacob&rsquo;s grandsons continue the Safra family tradition in diverse economic areas throughout the many countries where the bank thrives.&nbsp;</p>

<h2>Grupo Trist&atilde;o</h2>

<p>On February 23th, 1935, Jos&eacute; Ribeiro Trist&atilde;o opens a little grocery store in the town of Afonso Cl&aacute;udio, in the countryside of the Brazilian state of Esp&iacute;rito Santo. He names it Casa Misael, after his father Misael Trist&atilde;o. The store sold everything from food items to farming supplies, fabrics and haberdashery items.</p>

<p>At the same time, as both the state of Esp&iacute;rito Santo and the country tried to reverse the struggles that came with the Great Depression of 1929, Jos&eacute; identified the great investment opportunity coffee would be. Thus, he decided to use it as currency in his establishment, betting it would become a way of expanding his business. And he was right, so that in the 1950s coffee became Casa Misael&rsquo;s flagship business.</p>

<p>In 1960, already under management of J&ocirc;nice Trist&atilde;o, Jos&eacute; Trist&atilde;o&rsquo;s son, the company expands its operations by exporting coffee, leading to the creation of&nbsp;the company Jos&eacute; Ribeiro Trist&atilde;o e Filhos. In the 1970s, the company divided itself into two separate entities: Trist&atilde;o Companhia de Com&eacute;rcio Exterior and Triscaf&eacute; Armaz&eacute;ns Gerais. In 1971, the instant coffee company Realcaf&eacute; Sol&uacute;vel do Brasil was established. In 1988, the companies pass onto the family&rsquo;s third generation with the entry of J&ocirc;nice Trist&atilde;o&rsquo;s children, and are consolidated as one of the most solid business groups in their home state, as well as one of the largest groups in the coffee industry worldwide: the Trist&atilde;o Group, or Grupo Trist&atilde;o, in Portuguese.</p>

Financial Times

<p>Jones Day traces its beginnings to the firm of Blandin &amp; Rice, formed in Cleveland, Ohio in 1893. Edward J. Blandin was one of the most noted litigators in Cleveland; he later was elected President of the Cleveland Bar Association, becoming the first of nine Jones Day partners to be so honored. William Rice was a successful business lawyer. They took on one associate, Frank Ginn, and the Firm rapidly expanded. Tragedy struck in 1910, when Rice was mysteriously murdered while walking home from dinner. The murder was never solved.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
The Firm survived this shock, and in 1913 Frank Ginn became the first of what have been only seven Managing Partners of Jones Day in the century since that time. Other successful lawyers joined the Firm, including the state&rsquo;s leading utilities lawyer, Sheldon Tolles, and a leading railroad lawyer, Tom Hogsett. By 1920, Cleveland had become the fifth largest city in the United States and the home of many large industrial corporations. At that time, the Firm included in its associate ranks two future Managing Partners, Tom Jones and Jack Reavis.&nbsp;<br />
<br />
Among the Firm&rsquo;s most prominent clients were the Van Swearingen Brothers, who controlled the Alleghany Corporation, the Nickle Plate Railroad, the Union Trust Bank, and the Union Station and Terminal Tower complex in downtown Cleveland. John D. Rockefeller was also a significant client, and the Firm became the leading utility law firm in Ohio. It was counsel to the bank credit committee which successfully concluded the reorganization of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, characterized as &quot;the greatest example of equity reorganization.&quot;</p>
