We assist our clients in tuning the strategy of communication and negotiation with the other parties involved in the deal; in determining the best legal structure to mitigate eventual tax risks and related expenses; in the incorporation of the investment vehicle and in the organization of its governance; in legal due diligence of target-companies or supervision of legal due diligence conducted by investors; in the negotiation, drafting and review of agreements in the context of investment operations, either through equity, debt or hybrid instruments, as per the characteristics presented by each case; as well as in the regularization of foreign investments in Brazil, among other related services.

We have also worked in several venture capital transactions over the last years, including the organization and development of one of the most innovative accelerator of early-stage companies in Brazil. Our clients can trust our firm in every stage of its business, from the definition of the initial activities to be performed, especially in light of regulation limitations and local constrains, to the incorporation of the company, its internal organization and governance, up to the negotiation of investments from external investors or exits in liquidation events.

We are therefore committed to provide legal services in an efficient and compatible way with the actual needs of each client and case, maximizing as much as possible and in a collaborative approach the gains arising from the transaction.
