With a long involvement in supporting the structuring and modeling of projects with the public sector, we assist clients in public tenders, concessions, and public-private partnerships, providing advice on all aspects of administrative and regulatory law.

We are pioneers in structuring public-private partnerships, a subject that we have developed even before the publication of Law No. 11.079 of 2004. We work in this area since the beginning of the process, providing legal advice on the design of technical solutions for more than a hundred infrastructure projects through the Expression of Interest Procedures. Once public bidding is authorized, we advise private companies on structuring financing and corporate and contractual arrangements to enable complex projects.

The firm was in charge of the most significant privatizations, concessions, and PPPs of the country. In the context of recent sporting events, for example, besides our activities in the projects of stadiums, football arenas, and the Olympic venues, we led the urban renewal project of the oldest port area in Rio de Janeiro.

Our consulting services with respect to public and regulatory law may involve different legal practices in the firm, such as:

  • Project financing​ Joint Ventures
  • Corporate law
  • Negotiation and drafting of complex contracts
  • Tax consulting
  • Regulatory consulting
  • Advice on insurance
  • Administrative litigation
  • Crisis management
