Grafin Partners

Grafin Partners team has been working in M&A for over 18 years and is the one that closed the most transactions in the southern region of the country since 2017, according to the Transactional Track Record (TTR) ranking.

We take the boutique concept to the next level: we are deeply involved in our projects, we know our clients in detail and we maintain a very close relationship with them throughout the process. In practice, we actually become the M&A department of our clients, reporting directly to shareholders and conducting our projects in an integrated manner to their interests and business dynamics. We work in an absolutely personalized way to fully exploit all opportunities to create value for our clients.

When it comes to making the most important transaction for your company and, eventually, your own entrepreneurial life, count on the most committed and resilient advisors in the market.

What Sets us Apart

Like all our competitors, we also have a great story to tell since we started acting as M&A advisors in 2003, with dozens of projects completed in amounts exceeding R$ 2 billion in transactions. We are proud to say that we are the team that has closed the most transactions in the south of the country since 2017 and the third that has closed the most in 2019. But what sets us apart is what we deliver and how we deliver to the client in a moment as relevant as the sale or purchase of a company. Learn how we create value and work for our clients.
