The International Who’s Who of Business Lawyers
Carlos Vilhena Filho is Brazil’s leading lawyer for Mining legal expertise
Carlos Vilhena Filho of Pinheiro Neto Advogados is the number one practitioner in Brazil for mining legal expertise, according to the third edition of The International Who’s Who of Mining awyers published by Who’s Who Legal this week.
Mr Vilhena Filho received more nominations from clients and peers in the course of the research than any other mining practitioner in the country. The book, first published in 1999, is a result of six months of independent research incorporating feedback from lawyers and in-house counsel, and covers 221 lawyers in 32 separate jurisdictions.
Managing Editor Callum Campbell said, “It is impossible to buy entry into this publication, only those lawyers who receive sufficient nominations from their peers are included. This book represents a truly global, highly qualitative survey of only the best mining lawyers, based on exhaustive research.”
The third edition of The International Who’s Who of Mining Lawyers will be included in the 2005 edition of The International Who’s Who of Business Lawyers, a compendium volume of all 24 practice areas covered by Who’s Who Legal’s separate single volume publications.
The information is also available without charge on hosWhoLegal.com and is updated on a daily basis.

Notes to Editors:
· Research is conducted through conversations with private practice lawyers of repute in the practice area in question and in related fields, as well as with general counsel.
· Subsequent telephone and face-to-face interviews are conducted internationally to permit the refining of the listing to a selection of between 100 and 400 lawyers who, by general agreement, are considered the pre-eminent lawyers in the field
· The Who’s Who Legal series acts as a reference source for purchasers of legal services seeking to corroborate the reputations of expert lawyers recommended to them by another party
· Who’s Who Legal aims to reduce the short-term costs incurred in finding a lawyer, but more significantly, to minimise the transactional expense and risk of receiving poor counsel
