Licks Attorneys is proud to have successfully assisted clients set up their businesses in Brazil and run licensing, corporate and commercial transactions in Brazil and Latin American countries. Our technical team, in the fields of chemistry, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, mechanics, electronics and telecommunications, works seamlessly with our legal team to deliver the best results in due diligences and licensing of Intellectual Property assets. We understand the peculiarities of the Brazilian authorities (Patent and Trademark Office – INPI, the local IRS and the Brazilian Central Bank) for the filing of tech transfer agreements and remittance of royalties abroad.
Our internationally trained team deals extensively with joint development, distribution and procurement agreements of any sort, always aiming at maximizing the return on any investment. We develop and deliver RD&I programs and training for employees and officers of several industries, including high-tech, mining and healthcare.
We offer strategic corporate advice to international investors, either by setting up local subsidiaries in Brazil; by M&A transactions involving local companies; or by purchasing or licensing of Brazilian-based assets. We represent startups and large entities in corporate venture capital transactions. We also assist a number of multinational companies already established in Brazil, working in their corporate governance, shareholders’ agreements, government bids and compliance with local rules.
