Information Technology Law Practice:
If speed is key to your business, don’t let legal baggage slow you down.
IT and communications companies need to be innovative and agile. But a lot of things can slow you down. Operating your business in non-strategic areas. Pricing your products without building in applicable taxes. Partnering with resellers who disregard your trademark rights.
Sorting through Brazil’s 50-plus tax types, understanding complex labor policies and forecasting environmental risks can also slow your progress. For all these commercial and legal matters, you need a partner who knows the rules – and the industry – inside and out.
Trench, Rossi e Watanabe can help you respond to these issues and anticipate them. We have been assisting IT and communications companies ever since technology protection began in Brazil. We even helped write the law. We were involved in one of the first commercial transactions over the Internet, as well as major cases that have established rights for industry players. We’ve helped many global companies set up offshore operations in Brazil.
We can help you properly structure your business to avoid unnecessary speed bumps. We can protect your assets and interests, help you get the best tax treatment, and avoid technology disputes. Every measure to keep you nimble and free to do what you do best: innovate.
