Corporate and M&A

Lead Attorney: Ricardo Thomazinho da Cunha


Through sophisticated planning, the members of TMBJ’s corporate law team assist Brazilian and foreign companies with structuring and restructuring, while always aiming for the most efficient business model, be it through the formation of new companies, acquisitions, sales or joint ventures, or splits, mergers, takeovers and dissolutions.

Our lawyers have vast experience in drafting all types of corporate documents, including articles of incorporation, bylaws, shareholders agreements and minutes of shareholders’ meetings and consortium agreements. We also advise on the issuance or public offering of shares and other securities on the Brazilian market.

In conjunction with our tax lawyers and foreign exchange advisors, we assist foreign investors with the legal aspects of establishing businesses in Brazil, from the payment of capital and the registration of foreign investments with the Central Bank of Brazil to the remittance of profits.

We apply our decades of collective legal experience in comprehensive due diligence procedures, while advising foreign and domestic clients prior to the acquisition (buy side) or sale (sell side) of companies and conglomerates. We also assist with organizing data rooms and preparing check lists (required for a detailed analysis of target companies) and red flag or full reports, in both Portuguese and English.

Our approach integrates various areas of legal expertise. As an example, the firm’s family and estate planning attorneys work closely with our corporate attorneys in matters involving the legal aspects of estate planning and asset management.
