Brazil

The evolution of the lending and debt markets since the start of the world financial crisis, and the continuing financial crisis in Brazil, has left participants facing regulatory change, greater competition in the supply of debt funding, currency devaluation, financial distress and a flight to sector specialist advice. Our banking and finance practice can help you navigate these challenges. Whether you are a lender, borrower, sponsor, insolvency practitioner or debt advisor, our priority is resolving your challenges by delivering a combination of local and international expertise.

Today’s banking and finance transactions require expertise across a wide range of sectors. CMS is a top 10 global law firm with a strong sector focus. Our driver is to provide clients with pragmatic advice delivered by a multi disciplinary team.
