Brazil’s recent announcement that its long-expected 11th round auction of oil and gas prospects will take place in May 2013 makes our upcoming seminar particularly timely. The seminar will include analysis of the main tax considerations for US oil and gas company operations in Brazil and other topics of importance to US companies doing business in the Brazilian energy sector.

Please join us as members of our Energy and Tax practices address some of the tax issues and other challenges faced by US companies that do business in Brazil. The seminar is geared toward tax and finance professionals and in-house counsel involved in the Brazilian energy market.
