Overview

We are the first law firm in Brazil to have a practice area dedicated primarily to the energy segment.

We provide consulting, administrative, and judicial assistance with energy matters. We also work in project financing in the electrical power generation sector, both for entrepreneurs and financiers. Our services involve advice on energy auctions, mergers and acquisitions in the industry, and support in the main commercial contracts necessary for the development of an energy project. 

We operate in the following areas:

GENERATION
We assist investors in project finance, structured finance (financing, securitization, debt issuance), bidding, and privatization, as well as in structuring and modeling projects and contracts. We act in different segments of power generation, including traditional generation and renewable.

TRANSMISSION
This is an area with significant growth opportunities, which needs high investments to accompany the new generation projects. In addition to regulatory consulting and litigation, we provide advice on project financing, structured transactions, bidding, and mergers and acquisitions.

DISTRIBUTION
In this highly regulated area, we offer regulatory and litigation advice, as well as assistance with project financing, structured transactions, bidding, and mergers and acquisitions.

MARKETING
This area has great growth potential, as a result of the consolidation of the free energy market, and calls for our assistance with regulatory and litigation matters.
