Sophisticated Legal Representation of Real Estate Entrepreneurs and Businesses

In Brazil as in other countries, real estate remains a vital part of the economy, contributing significantly to income, employment and taxes. Construction stimulates business activity by creating a multiplier effect for demand up and down the production chain, from suppliers of raw materials to labor services for properties such as rentals, hotels, maintenance, management and consulting. Our attorneys not only follow, but also shape, developments within the Brazilian real estate market by acting as legal counsel on numerous high-value transactions.
