Trowers & Hamlins and Manucci Advogados launch initiative to support cross border investment and trade between Brazil and UK
International law firms Trowers & Hamlins and Manucci Advogados / UGGC Avocats are pleased to announce their new initiative to fully support their clients in transactions between the UK and Brazil.
The firms, which are members of Interlaw (an elite global network of law firms) already have solid practices supporting their international clients, but have decided to work jointly in order to provide end-to-end support to companies that have operations in both jurisdictions.
In September 2019 Manucci Advogados / UGGC Avocats announced the opening of their UK branch office in London, which provides in loco assistance and reinforces the level of service which can be offered to the clients of both firms.
The launch of this initiative took place on the 18th of September, with a high profile event hosted at Trowers & Hamlins' London offices to discuss cross-border investment and commercial opportunities between Brazil and the UK.
Guest speakers at the event included leading individuals from Gympass, Tramontina, Oxis Energy, Faro Energy, SalaryFits and Santander. The event, supported by Department of International Trade, Brazilian Chamber of Commerce in Great Britain and the Brazilian Embassy in London, was well attended and widely considered to be a huge success.
Manucci and Trowers are leveraging on their significant corporate practice to support clients in areas such as Infrastructure, Banking, Health, M&A, IT and others, and which already have or are exploring opportunities to establish operations in both geographies.
“UK is an international hub for innovation and tech entrepreneurs – and the Brazilian market is more and more attractive to foreign investments. There is a considerable synergy between both markets”, Daniel Manucci says.
"We are seeing an increasing number of Brazilian companies exploring growth opportunities in the UK and working closely together with the team at Manucci, we are ideally placed to offer a one-stop-shop legal solution to assist them in their endeavours", commented Nick Harrisingh of Trowers & Hamlins.
