 Public Law and Regulatory

​Demarest's expertise in Public Law, comprising the Regulatory and Administrative practice areas, has been accumulating since the early 90s, a time of privatizations and regulation and standardization of business activities.

The Public Law and Regulatory team includes various strategic areas and is constantly updated on any information related to its specific area. That expertise has made Demarest to be included in the latest issues of the Análise Advocacia yearbook.

  • Advice and consulting services on public biddings and procurement contracts, including development of projects and Private Enterprise's Manifestations of Interest ("MIP") in participating in bidding processes and executing procurement agreements with the government;
