In Brazilian football, the vast majority of clubs is still constituted as associations, whose corporate type, for an enormous range of reasons, is no longer adequate to the moment in which we live.
Currently, it is imperative that clubs constitute a limited liability company for the management of activities related to professional football, enabling the search for investments in the market capable of increasing their sporting and economic results.
The crisis caused by Covid-19 accentuated the financial fragility of football clubs, making the conversion to a company the only viable alternative for their capitalization.
Carlezzo Advogados was one of the first law firms in Brazil to make the connection between sporting and corporate matters, being since 2004 in constant contact with football clubs in Brazil and abroad in order to structure corporate operations that guarantee a financial investment.
In addition, the firm maintains a dialogue with the international market in order to present investment projects in football clubs. From our office in Chile, we also reach the Chilean market, which in South America has the spotlight in terms of corporate transactions with football clubs.
Our reach is also international, once we advise investors interested in acquiring football clubs in other countries.
Based on these premises, Carlezzo Advogados is a leading firm in Brazil in advising football clubs on the planning and structuring of companies for the management of football-related assets, being able to provide the following services:
