Lawyers are your best friend when you want to take your corporation to the big stage, and even more so when you’re looking to invest in foreign nations like Brazil. Whether you’re a Brazilian native or a businessman from the US, Brazilian lawyers can be your best friends if you choose the right ones. Brazil has some different corporate and finance laws than the US, UK, Switzerland and other big banking nations, and as they’ve moved out of the financial crisis of the latter part of the 2000s and early 2010’s, they’ve had some red tape placed around the country. But that’s why law firms like Leite, Tosto e Barros Advogados where Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho is practicing are places where you can go prior to investing in Brazil.
Even if you don’t speak Portuguese fluently or at all, Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho is fluent in multiple languages including English. The firm specializes in all kinds of areas of finance including tax laws, contracts, banking, real estate, compliance and even civil and criminal defense cases. Brazil is generally a friendly nation when it comes to court cases and civil disputes, but you never know when one misstep by you or your business could lead to trouble, and if you ever do have to appear in court Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho will be happy to represent you.
