Environmental law

Brazil has some of the world’s most modern, complex and demanding environmental protection laws. The laws seek to find a balance between seemingly contradictory needs:environmental preservation and restoration on the one hand, and economic and technological development on the other. For companies whose activities have an environmental impact, Brazil’s National Environmental Policy has established a complex series of legal requirements such as:the establishment of standards for harmful emissions, the measurement of environmental impact caused by companies using natural resources, and an environmental licensing system, among others. In particular, the Environmental Licensing System requires Environmental Impact Assessments to be undertaken and presented in Report form prior to the licensing of any activity considered to be polluting or potentially polluting. The System also requires Reports for any undertaking of any form which can cause environmental damage. Typically, Peregrino Neto acts for clients whose activities are subject to Environmental Licensing, helping them carry out Environmental Impact Assessments and file the subsequent RIMA Environmental Impact Reports. Consistent with the licensing procedure, Peregrino Neto adopts administrative and legal measures in case a license is refused or revoked, and offers its expertise in dealing with the myriad questions related to Environmental Law.

In the context of globalization, the financial and capital markets have become increasingly important to companies, whether by using a third party’s financial resources, or by applying their own. Without doubt, local and international financial and capital markets are fundamental to the growth and maintenance of corporate competitiveness.The coordination of the domestic financial system by Brazil’s Central Bank is done through various regulatory acts, promulgated by the National Monetary Council and by the Central Bank itself, and through Resolutions and Circulars. These form specific legislation applicable to financial institutions and related organizations such as securities dealers and investment firms. As Peregrino Neto was founded at the same time as the Central Bank, we possess considerable experience in advising financial institutions on the interpretation and application of these guidelines and regulations.With respect to the governing and regulatory enforcement role of the Central Bank, particularly through its Regional Office in Curitiba, Peregrino Neto maintains an active practice in the area of administrative disputes, preparing defenses, rebuttals, and appeals. This includes intervention and extra-judicial liquidation of financial institutions and syndicates, plus proceedings connected with white-collar crime.Economic and Financial Law
