The Legal Representative is responsible for recognizing crucial communications and expediting those documents to the individuals who must to take action. Missing critical communications – either through lack of expertise or lack of availability – can expose your company to default judgements and administrative sanctions.

Our partners will represent you on a personal basis. They will be your point of contact with the Brazilian business environment and public authorities from the start of your enterprise and throughout the life of your project in Brazil.

Our Partners can undertake the office of resident directors of your subsidiary or branch in Brazil.

The CEO/General Manager (Administrador in Portuguese) of your company must be an individual with permanent residence. We can take on this responsibility on a non-executive level. It can be short-term in case your soon to be CEO is in the process of getting a permanent visa, or long-term in case you do not have an expat to manage your local company and wish to have a trustworthy professional to control and secure your operations in Brazil.
