Government Relations

Starting from the capacities developed in the legal assistance and support to class entities we developed our solutions aimed at the interlocution between the private initiative and the Brazilian State.

The theoretical basis of our work is the theory of Lhuman systems according to which the Political, Legal and Economic systems have different functions, language and speeds. The legal system enables and legitimizes the use of power for the political system, in addition to creating institutions used by the economic system as defined by the political system with content, rites and form provided by the legal system.

Our job is to build bridges between these three systems by acting as interpreters and translators among them for the benefit of our clients.

A full Corporate Governance Relations service should address the entire cycle of activities required to generate concrete results that distance or mitigate risk, leverage Customer’s efforts, Identify and Enable opportunities arising from the formulation of legislation, regulation and public policy . All activities below must be covered by the Corporate Governance Service in two areas that provide feedback on Monitoring and Mobilization.

Monitoring is done using competitive intelligence concepts to leverage or protect the customer’s business.

To ensure that the work is really useful to the client the first stage of the work is the understanding of the client’s business, where the client collaborates with the office, educating our team about what the company does and what is essential for its success present and for the execution of their strategies.

With the understanding of the client’s business our team makes a survey of all the rules that form the normative environment in which the client is inserted are laws, decrees, regulations, resolutions, public policies, among others; it maps out which bodies emit them and within those bodies which are the competence of the respective decision makers.
