The Corporate and M&A area is made up of a notable group of professionals with solid background in the field, both in Brazil and abroad. The attorneys from the Corporate department alone hold 7 PhDs and 14 LLM or Masters degrees. The 25-person strong group has an ample geographical reach, as it is spread across the firm’s Brazilian offices, with strongholds in Porto Alegre and São Paulo.

The team handles all matters related to companies’ day to day corporate and governance routines and their compliance with applicable legislation. The attorneys assist foreign and Brazilian clients in complex transactions including mergers and acquisitions, shareholders agreements, joint ventures, and due diligence procedures. On the contractual side, the professionals regularly negotiate and draft a vast variety of commercial agreements, including those related to construction projects, as well as distribution and agency agreements.

The corporate team works closely with related practice areas such as Restructuring and Bankruptcy, as well as Real Estate, Timberland Investment, Agribusiness and Wealth and Succession Planning. The team also regularly assists clients in foreign investments operations, both Brazilian companies expanding their international presence or participating in joint ventures with overseas corporations, as well as foreign clients doing business in Brazil.
