BMA took an active part in the development of the Brazilian capital market that marked the first decade of this century. At the peak of the IPOs in the Brazilian market in the second half of the last decade, BMA was among the top five law firms with the largest number of offerings, acting for both issuers and the investment banks that coordinated the IPOs.
BMA gives special attention to the advances in the debt and equity markets. With a thorough knowledge of the governing legislation and regulations, the finance and capital markets team advises clients in matters such as domestic and international credit facilities, currency exchange transactions, swaps, options and futures, debt restructuring, securitization of receivables, debt restructurings and other transactions on the stock market, the futures and commodities market, and the organized over-the-counter market.
BMA's team also advises in public and private offerings in the national and international markets of stock, debentures, ADRS, BDRs, commercial paper, bonds and notes, and in going-private and going-public transactions and takeovers. The team provides legal support in structuring and forming investment funds of various kinds, such as equity funds (FIPs), receivables funds (FIDCs) and real estate funds (FIIs).
BMA is frequently mentioned in legal directories for its work in the debt and equity markets.
