Sectors

Agribusiness

Agribusiness is one of the leading sectors of the Brazilian economy. The complexity of this field makes it essential for legal advice on environmental permitting procedures, risk management, compliance, and environmental laws and regulations.

Energy

Brazil is one of the largest energy consumers in the world and the largest in South America. The Brazilian energy sector development and electricity distributor increase has led to the need for legal advice related to the environmental, economic, political and social challenges.

Infrastructure

In a country of continental dimensions, such as Brazil, companies working with infrastructure projects will need to guarantee the service quality they provide. In addition, when there is a significant impact on the environment, they will need to guarantee compliance with environmental laws.

Mining

Mining with proper environmental assistance helps prevent and remediate possible impacts that may be generated, from the suppression of vegetation, soil exposure to erosive processes, and air contamination.

Oil & Gas

Oil is the most exploited energy resource with the greatest impact on the economic development of the world production system. Companies working in the field of oil and gas need specialized legal advice related to production, refining and distribution.
