  • 18/05/2024

We are excited to announce our participation in the prestigious Chambers International Fraud & Asset Tracing 2024 Guide!

Our team has worked hard to prepare the Brazilian section, contributing to the complex regulatory landscape surrounding anti-fraud and asset tracing in Brazil with our expertise.

In the Trends and Developments section, our partners Octaviano DuarteHenrique Forssell and Marcelo Lucidi wrote the article “Leveraging Brazil’s New Cross-Border Insolvency Law for Enhanced Asset Recovery Efforts”, in which they listed the main innovations brought by Law 14.112/2020 to the bankruptcy procedure, including the recognition of foreign insolvency proceedings in Brazil and cooperation with authorities abroad.

In addition, DFA’s participation also included the contribution of partner André Marcassa and senior lawyer Mayara Rufino to the Law and Practice section, in which they presented aspects of fraud-related proceedings in Brazil, measures to break bank and tax secrecy, the production of evidence, the liability of companies and the extension to partners (veil-piercing), among others.

We are proud to represent Brazil on this international platform!
