We provide counselling on Brazilian Tax Law, especially in relation to the tax aspects regarding daily corporate matters, issues regarding the international financial reporting standards (“IFRS”), corporate reorganizations and tax aspects regarding the Brazilian electric power sector. Our team also reviews tax planning structures in order to identify possible conflicts with authorities and advises clients on how to correctly apply the legislation concerning transfer pricing and capitalization rules.

The firm has a solid presence representing our clients in judicial and administrative conflicts related to Brazilian Tax Law, conducting administrative defenses regarding Tax Assessments, as well as performing strategic analysis and conducting lawsuits related to municipal, state and federal taxes.

We highlight our practice before the Administrative Tax Court of Appeals (Conselho Administrativo de Recursos Fiscais – CARF), especially in defense of assessments related to corporate income tax (IRPJ), social contribution on net profits (CSLL) and social contributions on revenue (PIS and COFINS). Our practice includes every possible instrument available to our clients’ defense.

VBSO Advogados is a law firm striving to be a reference in technical quality and service in Banking Law and Capital Markets, Corporate Law and Tax Law, in the advisory and litigation practices.  We are a team of experts with solid multidisciplinary background and permanent focus on fulfilling the needs of our clients.

Expertise.  Focus on the client. Reputation.  These are the three cornerstones sustaining our practice in pursuit of offering solutions to complex questions and efficient legal answers to corporate demands, helping the development of successful businesses.

Our greatest asset is our people.  And their quality is the key to the success in our mission of serving our clients.  Therefore, we invest heavily in hiring talents and, above all, in developing our people within our culture: the VBSO’ DNA.

As a team of experts, it is essential that we fully dominate the technical tools of our practice areas.  Coming from the best Law schools, our professionals hold solid legal training, combined with deep expertise in their areas, which put them in the center of the main legal discussions in their practice.

However, we understand that expertise alone is not enough for the formation of good lawyers.  These should, a priori, bear solid multidisciplinary training, not only in Law areas (after all, for example, how to become a specialist in Corporate Law without understanding the tax impacts of a corporate reorganization or a tax lawyer without a deep understanding of the legal nature of a certain transaction and its impact on the business?), but in complementary or ancillary areas to their activities, such as business management, accounting, finance, and negotiation techniques, enabling our lawyers to have an overall view of our clients’ businesses and thus the proposition of more efficient and comprehensive legal solutions.
