Practice Areas

All of our founding partners have gathered their previous experiences in prominent national and international law firms and in investment banks combining them into a format that seems the most appropriate for our clients.

TAX LAW


We provide assistance in the consulting and litigation areas, addressing issues related to municipal, state and federal levels, including those related to social security contributions, acting in judicial and administrative courts.

We perform studies on the tax treatment applicable to our clients’ activities in the various sectors of the economy, either those related to their activities or those arising from their corporate restructuring

CORPORATE LAW


We provide legal assistance on the establishment of companies and on the negotiation of shareholders agreements and on corporate restructuring transactions, as well as corporate and contractual routine issues of our clients.

CAPITAL MARKETS


We represent issuers and underwriters in public offering of securities, especially in Corporate Finance, Acquisition Finance and Receivables Securitization transactions.

We provide assistance in the organization of investment funds, including Receivables Investment Funds, Equity Investment Funds, Real Estate Investment Funds, among others, and we act on behalf of our clients in administrative proceedings before the Brazilian Securities Exchange Commission.

FOREIGN TRADE


We provide assistance on foreign trade transactions, including the definition of structures under taxation, customs, regulatory and currency exchange points of view.    We also act in the procedures related to trade protection applied to foreign trade (antidumping).

BANKING AND FINANCIAL MARKETS


We provide assistance in bilateral and syndicated loans and financing, including Corporate Finance, Trade Finance and Project Finance. We also act in the restructuring of debts and respective collaterals, representing creditors and debtors.

MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS


We advise partners or shareholders, both buyers and sellers, in mergers, amalgamations and acquisition of equity interests or assets, including the structuring of private equity and venture capital transactions.

Team

Unlikely as usually occurs in larger firms, our firm intends to keep a suitable structure that allows, above all, the dedicated and direct service we intend to provide. This is, therefore, what makes us different: we combine the expertise that great complexity transactions require with the full dedication in all cases and transactions our firm comes to act.
