Our M&A Lawyers

We have three major teams of Mergers and Acquisitions in our firm.

1) Financials & Accounting Due Diligence

Profit and revenues are usually the main drivers in a mergers and acquisitions project. Our financials and accounting lawyers and specialists work relentless on the numbers to uncover the truth about businesses located in Brazil.

2) Taxation Due Diligence

Taxation in Brazil is complex and heavy on the companies bottom-lines. It is not uncommon in our M&A projects to find out that a prospective target acquisition has neglected major Brazilian taxes. Due to the number of taxes and rules on how to calculate and apply them, many companies will be out of compliance with the mandatory tax laws. Unpaid taxes may substantially alter the financials for a target acquisition while also representing undesired liability in terms of taxes to be paid with interest in addition to several financial penalties.

3) Legal Due Diligence

Lawsuits, compliance with government laws and governance are just some of the things carefully reviewed by our legal team during a M&A project.
