INTERNATIONAL LAW CONSULTING AND LITIGATION
Private International Law: issues involving people, families, goods, inventories, shares and contracts that have effects in Brazil and abroad.
Cases involving international procedural law, in particular questions about international jurisdiction, lis pendens and jurisdiction exceptions, in all instances, as well as ratifications and enforcement of foreign judgments at the Superior Court of Justice.
INTERNATIONAL LITIGATION AND COMMERCIAL DEFENSE IN BRAZIL, WTO AND MERCOSUR
Advice in all areas of foreign trade, such as trade defense measures, barriers to entry of products, tariff preferences, regime of origin. We operate in the administrative sphere, with the Secretariat of Foreign Trade (SECEX), the Department of Commercial Defense (DECOM) and other responsible bodies, and also in the judicial sphere.
With the support of our correspondent offices, we are also able to assist our clients in cases involving restrictions on Brazilian exports or questioning national legislation, processed before foreign administrative or judicial bodies, or in the WTO dispute settlement system. We also offer services related to monitoring the negotiations of international trade agreements for associations and government agencies.
NEGOTIATION AND CONCLUSION OF INTERNATIONAL CONTRACTS
The elaboration and negotiation of international contracts is another important activity of our office. Domestic (national) rights do not accompany the widespread dissemination of clauses, expressions and acronyms typical of international trade. That is why international conventions appear that establish a complex of alternative rules that more effectively regulate international trade relations.
With the advent of technology, the traditional modalities of contract formation were substantially changed, giving rise to new and revolutionary formulas for international contracting: purchase and sale of goods, agency, representation, distribution, service provision, technology transfer, “know how”, “licensing”, “leasing”, “franchising”, “joint venture”, etc.
Our staff of technicians are familiar with the rules for writing contracts, adopting in each case the reflection of the legal system in which the contract is inserted. Strictly situating the analysis in this field, as there are notable differences between the countries of the common law tradition and the countries of the civil law tradition.
