COMPLIANCE AND DUE DILIGENCE

The Brazilian anticorruption act went into effect in 2014 and placed Brazil amongst the most advanced and rigorous countries in the world when it comes to the fight against corruption. The change fostered a more mature business setting and strengthened the key role played by corporate compliance programs.
With a multidisciplinary, integrated approach, MARCELO TOSTES LAW FIRM represents and assists its clients in corporate integrity and compliance, in addition to helping develop anticorruption policies and programs in line with each client’s risks and specificities.
We also rely on an efficient, modern internal control policy to ensure the best practices according to applicable laws and regulations. We promote a culture of ethical conduct and an honest, transparent corporate environment.
O escritório conta também com uma moderna e eficiente política de controle interno, que visa assegurar e garantir as melhores práticas em conformidade com as leis e regulamentos. Promovemos uma cultura baseada na observância de condutas éticas e de um ambiente corporativo íntegro e transparente.
We provide due diligence services, a method based on systematic preventive procedures involving detailed review and analysis of corporate information and documents. More complex than auditing, due diligence is a process usually adopted in mergers & acquisitions as a tool to detect hidden contingencies and liabilities in the target company’s labor, tax, contractual, corporate, legal, and litigating areas.
