Areas of Expertise

Climate Change and Environmental Markets

Our legal assistance in climate change issues includes legal advice on the implementation of investments strategies and vehicles for greenhouse gas emission reduction projects (e.g., MDL, VERs and REDD and REDD+ projects), development and negotiation of carbon credits or other environmental assets purchase and sale agreements, and support for approval of CDM or voluntary carbon projects before the national and international authorities or registers. 

Our expertise also includes supporting private and governmental national and subnational entities in the development of low carbon, payments for environmental services and accounting of environmental assets strategies and policies, and their respective insertion in the national and international markets, including emissions trading schemes (EUTS, Australia, New Zealand, California, and the voluntary market) and the corresponding synergies with the Brazilian and Latin American markets. We also assist companies and governments in capacity building activities in connection with low carbon mandatory and voluntary requirements.
