Enhanced Due Diligence in Doing Business in Brazil
Our legal review covers analysing all documents and potential material before contracts are entered into or when their enforcement is at stake. Our analysis takes into account the characteristics of Brazilian legal system and law.
Precautionary legal review is essential to identifying legal risks and preventing financial repercussions.
Similarly, our legal review through both Swiss and Brazilian prisms provides useful inputs in cases of unremedied breaches of contracts.
Companies often enter into agreements or contracts without a sound knowledge of their counterpart nor of the characteristics of the sector in which they operate and even less of the risks related both to the potential business partner and the particular economic sector.
We help companies with the best information for these purposes and for complying with AML requirements and social and environmental responsibility issues.

We advise our clients in every stage of negotiations. Our expertise covers legal aspects of Brazilian law and what we call 'Brazilian Business Behaviour', that is the 'translation' into Swiss approaches and legal terms of what is meant by Brazilian counterparts' statements and references, business proposals, behaviours as well as manifest commitments.
Our legal advice is recommended to negotiations prior to entering into or amending contracts or in cases of persistent unremedied breaches of contracts.
