Corporate Law and Foreign Investment

The significantly heightened foreign investment in Brazil in recent years has made Corporate Law and Foreign Investment one of the most active practice groups in the firm and one of our main fields of specialization.


We have extensive experience advising investors on various mechanisms to establish or increase their domestic market presence, and how best to take advantage of the dynamic growth and liberalization of the Brazilian economy and regional market integration.


Our wide scope of services includes comprehensive advice to foreign investors on structuring and implementing multidisciplinary and multijurisdictional transactions. We also advise on investments; compliance; structuring and implementing IPOs, joint ventures, and mergers and acquisitions; investment alternatives, structuring of financing transactions; and negotiations with venture capitalists and financial regulatory bodies.


TozziniFreire’s Corporate Law and Foreign Investment practice is recommended by Chambers Global and Chambers Latin America in several editions of the publications. We are among the best Latin American law firms according to The Legal 500, Latin Lawyer 250 and IFLR1000. We have won three times the Latin Lawyer Deals of the Year – 2007, 2009 and 2010 – for M&A.
