Startups | Digital Business | Data Protection

We believe that Law plays a decisive role in the success of any innovative business model. One of the main challenges of providing a disruptive product or service is to ensure its legal certainty. Entrepreneurs need to be confident that their innovations are law-compliant, while investors do need this confirmation in order to invest comfortably. Hence, legal advice is essential in structuring the activity, so that innovation may develop in practice.

BSBC’s team has the necessary expertise to assist clients in the design, implementation, and operation of innovative business models, grounded on new technologies. Our services include legal feasibility assessment, intellectual property consultancy, corporate structuring, drafting terms of use and privacy policies, review and negotiation of contracts with incubators and accelerators, drafting and negotiation of angel investment contracts and convertible loan agreements, among others.

BSBC takes advantage of its experience in M&A transactions and corporate matters to advise investors who wish to invest in innovative businesses. Our services involve carrying out due diligences and the drafting and negotiation of an array of agreements, in light of the risks and stage of development of the target-company, always aiming at a structure that best meets the client’s interests.

In addition, BSBC assists its clients in implementing measures to comply with the Brazilian General Data Protection Act – LGPD and the European General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR, and represents them before public agencies and courts, in claims concerning unlawful use and/or leaks of personal data.

Among our activities in the data protection area, we highlight the drafting or review of terms of use and privacy policies; the assessment of compliance with national and international rules; analysis of the legal aspects involved in personal data processing operations, including regarding international transfers; and judicial and extrajudicial representation in civil investigations, as well as in collective and individual actions involving breaches of privacy and personal data.
