Effective solutions for energy industry challenges

Due to the privileged composition of the electricity matrix and the almost complete interconnection of the system, the Brazilian electricity sector occupies a strategic position in the global scenario and represents an essential vector in the development of the national economy. This reality brings opportunities and complexities in the actions of interested parties, whether in the choice of the operating regime of companies and the consequent obligations, and incentives, or in the operation of projects, which must be carefully guided by constantly evolving regulations.

The sector has an essential role to play in developing tools to enable a secure and coherent energy transition to a low-carbon economy. In this scenario, the development of business plans that take into account the sustainability attribute, as well as assistance in the legal definition and construction of risk matrices related to extreme weather events, are not only beneficial but essential for investment decisions and obtaining the necessary financing.

In this context, our team provides consulting services for the analysis of legal and regulatory issues, assistance in structuring generation and energy trading projects, drafting and negotiating contracts, representing companies in dispute resolution proceedings, and conducting administrative proceedings before legal entities.

We provide effective and tailored solutions to the unique challenges faced by our clients. Our goal is to achieve the best results in every area.

  • Advising on procedures for obtaining concessions and permits for developing electric energy services
  • Preparation of legal and regulatory opinions and memoranda
