Overview

By any measure, Brazil is a major economy, what means an active business environment. Our expert team counsels domestic and multinational companies on M&A transactions, corporate governance and the formation of joint ventures in Brazil and abroad. 

Our client base includes a broad range of investment funds and private equity investors, as well as many enterprises that are leaders in their fields. With a comprehensive portfolio of services, the team helps clients to choose and implement the legal structure best suited to their interests. All that when undertaking acquisitions and company reorganizations such as mergers, spin-offs, consolidations and asset dropdowns. We assist in negotiating and drafting a diverse range of agreements:

  • Assets purchase agreements
  • Establishment purchase agreements 
  • Investment agreements
  • Memoranda of understanding, confidentiality agreements, letters of intent and term sheets
  • Share purchase agreements and all associated collateral agreements in M&A transactions
  • Shareholder agreements

However, a deal doesn’t stop at the door. We offer full support to buyers through a range of activities:

  • Legal due diligence and data-room structuring processes
  • Negotiating price and contract conditions
  • Preparing audit reports, executive summaries and risk matrices
  • Risk assessment 

In each transaction, we work closely with the antitrust and competition team and with the industry practices involved to guarantee full compliance with regulatory requirements.
