BMA Advogados


Founded in the 1990s, when Brazil was undergoing structural changes, BMA Advogados was inspired by a mission to find innovative solutions that are legally viable and sustainable in an environment of rapid development, new regulatory frameworks and new business models in almost all sectors of the economy. Inspired to be a pioneering law firm, ready – and more than able – to take on the big projects and big problems that require sophisticated solutions. An active participant in the privatisations that took place in the 1990s, BMA had achieved a solid reputation and both national and international recognition even before becoming one of the leading firms in Brazil in the mid-2000s, when the Brazilian market experienced a wave of IPOs and mergers and acquisitions. BMA has been present in most of the major M&A transactions in Brazil over the past two decades, participating in the creation of corporate groups that do business around the world. BMA has acquired an impressive stock of know-how in infrastructure projects, especially in the areas of ports, railroads, highways, oil and gas, energy and telecommunications.
