Brazil covid-19 information hub

As governments respond to the pandemic by enacting emergency legislation that will affect all areas of society and doing business, we are providing a central information hub that contains the enacted legislation and other relevant official communication issued in relation to the crisis.

We have collated this information with the help of a group of leading firms from countries across the region: Argentina’s Beccar Varela, Mitrani Caballero & Ruiz Moreno and Pérez Alati, Grondona, Benites & Arntsen (PAGBAM); Bolivia's Moreno Baldivieso Estudio de Abogados; Brazil’s BMA - Barbosa, Müssnich, Aragão, Demarest Advogados, Lefosse Advogados, Mattos Filho, Veiga Filho, Marrey Jr e Quiroga Advogados, TozziniFreire Advogados and Veirano Advogados; Central America’s Aguilar Castillo Love, Arias, BLP and Consortium Legal; Chile’s Carey, Cariola, Díez, Pérez-Cotapos and Claro & Cía; Colombia’s Brigard Urrutia and Posse Herrera Ruiz; regional law firm Philippi Prietocarrizosa Ferrero DU & Uría; the Dominican Republic's Pellerano & Herrera; Ecuador’s Ferrere (Ecuador) and Pérez Bustamante & Ponce; Mexico’s Creel, García-Cuéllar, Aiza y Enriquez SC, Hogan Lovells (Mexico), Galicia Abogados, Mijares, Angoitia, Cortés y Fuentes SC and Nader, Hayaux & Goebel; Ferrere (Paraguay); Peru’s Payet, Rey, Cauvi, Pérez Abogados and Rodrigo, Elías & Medrano Abogados; Ferrere (Uruguay); and Venezuela’s D'Empaire.

Most firms contributing to the covid-19 hub are drawn from Latin Lawyer Elite. In those countries not covered by Latin Lawyer Elite, we are working with top firms recommended in the Latin Lawyer 250.

We believe that by coming together to provide this service we can help provide businesses around the region with crucial facts and legislative developments to help them through this challenging, rapidly-evolving period.

We have tried to assemble the most pertinent official developments issued in relation to covid-19. Although we cannot guarantee this list is exhaustive, our editorial team will be adding to this resource regularly, as and when we are made aware of the latest updates.
