Ongoing market liberalization and favorable commercial agreements executed with other countries have resulted in a wave of mergers and acquisitions in Brazil. However, expanding through alliances can be complex, since no agreement follows a defined pattern.
How to structure a transaction in a fast and efficient manner? What protections should be established for the parties involved?
At Trench Rossi Watanabe, we understand that each transaction is unique. Issues related to mergers, acquisitions, and other transactions vary according to the company and sector. Whether the client is the buyer or the seller, our purpose is to help carry out the transaction efficiently and effectively, as well as to increase the value of the business.
As a preparatory act to provide our services, our professionals seek to be up to date with the sectors in which our clients operate, as well as with their objectives and main concerns.
