Compliance and Anticorruption

Since Brazilian Congress passed the nation’s first anticorruption law in 2013, recent developments in the country’s public and private sectors have consistently shown the importance of adoption and compliance with such rules.

In recent years, our team has increasingly been retained by clients for guidance on a wide array of compliance and anticorruption matters, including investigations involving supposed bribery and money laundering practices, implementation of codes of conduct, and compliance programs, as well as internal investigations.

Our lawyers help our clients identify and anticipate tendencies in regulatory standards that may be critical to their businesses, working closely with other main practice areas of the firm to ensure continuing conformity with the highest quality standards in all transactions. We are also frequently retained to perform investigations for our clients in connection with acquisitions, mergers, financings, and other corporate transactions.

“The group is active on behalf of a solid list of clients […] on a reasonable collection of work highlights that incorporate a range of compliance advice and anti-corruption investigations.”
