We advise Brazilian and foreign clients on the buy- and sell-side. The foreign clients include companies investing in Brazil for the first time and that require guidance to understand the complex Brazilian legal system, as well as those expanding their activities in the country. We support them in all areas and stages of company and asset acquisitions, assisting and coordinating all aspects of the legal due diligence and competitive processes. This includes preparing letters of intent and offers, drafting and negotiating purchase and sale agreements and other related documents, as well as support during closing and other perfection procedures.
Furthermore, we provide legal support with respect to all accessory aspects of M&A and private equity transactions, such as tax planning and analysis of complex transaction structures, in order to identify opportunities to increase efficiency and preserve clients’ business value.
