Institutional and Governmental Relations – a specialty of Perman Advogados Associados – are of paramount strategic importance for the various associations, companies, social and economic groups in the country.
The focus in this field of action is not limited to simple legislative monitoring. The objective is precisely to bring together and improve relations between the public and private Sectors, stimulating interaction and dialogue.
Our work is done, first, through the identification of our clients’ topics of interest that directly affect their activity. Then, we carry out the legal analysis either of legislative propositions and from the Executive Branch and its agencies. Studies and positioning are elaborated, in order to verify the possible impacts of normative acts and ways to increase or even mitigate them. Later, once the identification of the stakeholders is made, the phase of dialogue with the actors involved is conducted, in that manner, arguments, studies and analyses are taken to the authorities and other people who can influence this decision-making.
This is all done by seeking convergent paths, in order to strengthen the dialogue between sectors, with efficiency, transparency, ethics and security, always ensuring our customers’ interests.
The Firm has exemplary performance in terms of tax immunity, an important constitutional mechanism for encouraging and maintaining activities of relevant social and political aspects. The lawyer has an indispensable role in securing this important tax benefit, in order to guarantee the observance of the immunity to entities that are entitled to it, which is why we act in court to prevent charges that violate this important guarantee. In this sense, we have significant successes in ensuring the recognition of immunity and removing charges that do not comply with tax immunity, acting, in particular, in favor of non-profit entities, assisting in the granting of a Certificate of Social Assistance Charities, which ensures the withdrawal of social security contributions. In addition, we defend entities that are part of the so-called “S” system, preventing the collection of taxes and contributions and claiming the return of everything that was paid by these entities in recent years through the recognition of immunity and ample tax exemption.
