Tauil & Chequer Advogados in association with Mayer Brown provides a full range of legal services to local and foreign companies, underwriters, institutional investors and financial institutions in different matters related to capital markets and securitization, financing and fund formation in Brazil.

We offer advisory services related to the construction and application of capital markets legislation in Brazil, particularly in matters of the Brazilian Central Bank (BACEN) and the Brazilian Securities Commission (CVM) competence. These services include consultations and opinions regarding the related regulations and the defense of administrative proceedings and guidance on compliance matters in connection with the National Monetary Council (CMN) regulatory acts. In addition, we provide advisory services in matters related to: the amendments of the by-laws of companies aiming at going public in the special listing segments of the São Paulo stock exchange - BM&FBOVESPA (Levels 1 and 2, Novo Mercado and BOVESPA Mais); the preparation of periodical information required by CVM, including the formulário de referência; the cancelation of the company registration as public company; and the representation of our clients in debenture holders and shareholders meetings.

Our firm provides all the necessary support from the structuring of the concept of a deal and any capital markets or financing product, to the implementation and conclusion of complex transactions in those areas. We advise our clients in due diligence processes, IPOs, equity and debt, public and private offerings (including private placement), fund formation (investment funds and real estate funds), real estate certificates and credit securitization. We also assist with regulatory issues in Brazil and abroad (in this case, with respect to Brazilian legal matters only).

Clients also benefit from our association with Mayer Brown’s global finance practice. This association enables us to provide capital markets and securitization, and financial legal services to our clients worldwide. Together, we offer a complete team of highly qualified professionals, recognized for their outstanding performance and knowledge with respect to public companies’ day-to-day capital markets and securitization, corporate matters and financing transactions (particularly those involving structuring and issuance of debt and equity securities) needs, as well as for the drafting and negotiating of all the related transactional and collateral documents.
