Government Contracts and Projects

The Administrative Law and Government Projects practice specializes in public procurement proceedings, as well as contractual, regulatory, and tax-liability disputes arising between private sector businesses and government entities or state-owned companies.


Our professionals possess broad experience in assisting clients at all stages of the public procurement process, negotiating government agreements, and resolving disputes arising from the performance of these agreements.


Since the 1990s, activity in the private sector has rapidly increased. Our Administrative Law and Government Projects practice has met the demand for guidance in industries previously barred from the public arena and regularly advises clients on matters involving the privatization of state-owned companies and infrastructure such as ports, toll roads, railways, and airports.


In addition, the Administrative Law and Government Projects practice has significant experience interfacing on a range of matters with regulatory agencies, as well as monitoring and oversight bodies such as the Brazilian Audit Court.


Our professionals also assist in developing projects with Brazilian public authorities in connection with invitations to bid, structuring of privatization processes, and preparation and drafting of public-private partnership agreements.


The Administrative Law practice is constantly recognized by Chambers Latin America. We are among the best law firms in Latin America according to The Legal 500 and Latin Lawyer 250 and we also have our partners highlighted as the best professionals by LACCA.
