Banking law in Brazil is known by constant changes, as a result of the dynamism of our financial system and the actions of its regulator. SA Law’s banking legal team works on two main fronts: as legal advisors in complex financial operations and in structuring and validating innovative financial products and services.

With a focus on different segments of the financial market, we advice financial institutions and other players in the industry on the following matters:

  • Acting in structured finance operations (project finance, corporate finance, trade finance and debt restructuring)
  • Regulatory analysis of products and banking operations
  • Assistance to companies that operate in the electronic payments market (issuers, acquirers, sub-acquirers, processors and card networks)
  • Assistance in the authorization and accreditation processes of financial and payment institutions
  • Advising on foreign transactions.
  • Regulatory analysis of products and structures involving the use of crypto-coins
  • Regulatory analysis of the application of blockchain technologies to financial products and services, including means of payment
  • Collaboration with associations and self-regulators in the improvement of financial market rules and regulations
  • Review of remuneration policies for administrators of financial institutions
