Ana Frischtak and Sergio Aguiar Examine Corporate Restructuring Alternatives for Brazilian Companies on BTGGA Panel

June 26, 2024

Although Brazil’s insolvency landscape is evolving, new bankruptcy laws combined with cross-border strategies in the U.S. and offshore can build the leverage needed to reach favorable corporate restructuring solutions.

This week, Kobre & Kim’s Ana Frischtak and Sergio Aguiar joined the BTG Global Advisory Annual Conference in Sao Paulo, Brazil to discuss these issues on a panel titled “Navigating Corporate Restructuring: Comparative Analysis of Different Jurisdictions.” While discussing recent changes in Brazil’s insolvency legal regime, the panel explored the advantages and disadvantages faced by Brazilian companies looking to restructure in the U.S. or other jurisdictions such as the Cayman Islands and British Virgin Islands.

Ms. Frischtak and Mr. Aguiar outlined the different opportunities and risks within each system, shared alternatives for Brazilian companies considering restructuring outside Brazil, and highlighted the firm’s focus on cross-border strategies.
