CORPORATE AND TAX DISPUTES

Tax law disputes

In this practice area, Peregrino Neto provides its clients with a number of invaluable services, including the use of legal measures to defend client companies from unjustly appearing on a credit and/or delinquent payment blacklist, and conducting credit checks when clients have been unable to receive a clean financial bill of health. To assist clients in receiving a refund on improperly paid taxes and contributions, we reduce our fee structure and allow fee payments by installment, even when such cases are brought before the Supreme Court. Peregrino Neto also represents client companies which had paid taxes and federal taxation contributions that were later ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. In other cases, companies have continued to pay taxes which were legally contestable. In both cases, we assist clients in recovering these unnecessarily paid taxes and contributions. 

The legal structure of the company and its amendments to meet the convenience of negotiating entrepreneurs have been the subject of constant action of the firm.

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
