Portuguese-Speaking Countries Desk

This desk is dedicated to providing legal assistance to companies operating in Portuguese-speaking countries that wish to conduct business in Brazil. The practice also represents Brazilian companies interested in expanding their business into those countries.


Our professionals have expertise in a wide range of matters, including M&A, local subsidiaries, joint venture agreements with local commercial partners, and product sales in the Brazilian market. On behalf of Brazilian companies, our professionals regularly advise on investment procedures relevant to each sector, region, and transaction involved; corporate structuring of foreign subsidiaries; remittance of funds and investment return; government negotiations; tax benefits; labor regulations; contract disputes; and litigation strategy, among others. The practice also counsels Brazilian companies that intend to do business in these countries without a corporate presence such as managing distributor relationships and advising on import/export rules and tax benefits.
