Our practices – highlights

Our project finance lawyers have played a significant role in clean energy projects development, having won the “Proximo Awards Latin America Deal of the Year” in the Solar category for the "New Juazeiro" deal, which includes the construction of the Jacarandá solar plant in Bahia/BR. The “IFLR Americas Awards” also shortlisted this transaction, alongside “Casablanca” solar project, in the "Project finance Deal of the Year" category; Dias Carneiro was also shortlisted in the “Brazil Banking and Finance Firm of the Year” category for the second year in a row.

Our digital law and technology team has assisted several high-profile clients in a variety of matters – from general data privacy advice to GDPR issues. They have also advised Riot Games on structuring the new franchise format for the Brazilian League of Legends Championship; furthermore, they have assisted the biggest players of the videogame industry to navigate the legal structures that regulate their activities in Brazil.

The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in many changes in labour relationships and in the applicable legal framework. Our team has the knowledge and experience to safely guide companies and investors through the complexity of Brazil’s legislation and best practices.

Our litigation and tax practices have welcome new partners and associates – a reflection of the spike in legal work over the last year. The dispute resolution, civil litigation and arbitration practice assists with the preventive and litigious aspects across all areas of corporate and civil law, representing clients in numerous economic sectors. As for our tax and customs practice, it helps clients navigate the complex arena involving Brazilian taxes, providing general advice and representing clients in tax and customs administrative and judicial litigation.

We believe that an inclusive environment is fundamental to our success on a global scale. To this end, our Diversity Committee organises round-table talks to discuss strategies and stimulate the attraction, retention and development of our talents.
