Costa e Tavares Paes has provided legal advice to the airport services company dnata, a business unity of the Emirates Group, in the acquisition of most shares of RM Ground Services, a Brazilian company of ground handling services that operates in 12 airports in the country.
RM Ground Services, created in 2004, has 2,100 employees and provides services to 400 flights per day. Avianca, Azul, Gol and Tam are among its major clients. The company operates in more airports than its competitors do.
Dnata will replace RM’s brand and visual identity for its own and shall keep the entire existing staff. The deal was announced in November 2015 and closed in the beginning of 2016.
