Climate Change

We were the first law firm in Brazil to form a practice group devoted to advising clients on the carbon market, and today we have accumulated significant experience in assisting both project developers and investors on climate-change and carbon-market-related issues.

Since specific regulations have not yet been developed for several key issues in this area, the challenges in structuring Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects within the Kyoto Protocol rules require specialized assistance, deep knowledge, and constant monitoring of market developments. In such an interdisciplinary area, our firm relies on a team of lawyers experienced in the environmental, capital markets, administrative law, energy, tax and corporate sustainability areas in order to provide comprehensive assistance to our clients in the financing and implementation of projects qualifying for the issuance of Certified Emissions Reductions (CERs) under the Clean Development Mechanism.
