We were able to verify that, after being cited in our process, the executor held public auctions of his entire artistic collection, through an art gallery. All works were sold at the auction, to different buyers. We based ourselves on the argument that all purchasers would be able to find out about our debtor’s insolvency status, which was a notorious fact, including being reported by newspapers in the city of Rio de Janeiro at the time. The responsible judge accepted our argument, recognizing the fraud in the execution of the sale of the entire Debtor’s artistic collection.

Opportunities

Precatory

When the Justice condemns a public agency to pay a sum for some lawsuit, that debt is called precatory. It is a court order that generates credit. The debt is recognized by both the debtor and the court, but the payment term is somewhat indefinite. To give you an idea, the payment queue for precatory in the state of São Paulo is in 2002.

And over time there is a market for buying and selling precatory. We are inserted in this market with expertise for buyers and sellers.

In effect, investments in precatory is not regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (CVM), because that asset does not enter the real estate securities hall. Thus, Cruz, Gregolim & Amaral by neolaw .. argues that it is necessary to be careful and investigate companies very well before investing the money. Such is our expertise, we analyze your precatory, helping you legally with all the dynamics that this market requires.

It is worth understanding the rules of monetary restatement and interest for court orders, as shown in the table below.

Contact us, we hope you can make a good deal, either with the sale or with the purchase of precatory.

Acquisition of distressed assets (bad credits)

We have the expertise in due diligence for the acquisition of bad credits, as well as the feasibility of recovering your investment with a strategic plan that reconciles the careful analysis of credit and the profile of the debtor associated with their ability to pay. Thus, by acting in this market, we can also assist you in presenting credit buyers aiming at making it a good deal for the parties involved.

Distressed assets or bad credits become money in the hands of companies specialized in collection, which in the market are known as “vulture funds”. They negotiate loans at very high discounts in relation to the nominal value of the portfolio.

Two major movements have been guiding companies that operate in the purchase of “bad” credits: the prospect of increasing business, with the expected high default rates both among families and in companies, and the greater willingness of large banks to spawn overdue loans, they carry on the balance sheet or even those already written off for loss. The projection of those who operate in this segment is that it will move more than R$ 50 billion per year, considering the book value of the portfolios, by 2019.

We are immersed in this market.

Talk to us and we hope a good deal.

Purchase of complex assets (properties with judicial debts, in RJ or Bankruptcy)

The damage caused by the economic crisis triggered by Covid-19 in small companies, leading thousands of them to close, can bring good financial results for investors and other entrepreneurs who come to buy complex assets (example real estate with judicial debts, assets in Judicial Recovery or Bankruptcy, etc.). Companies in difficulty usually put on sale what they have available, such as goodwill, industrial equipment and real estate, usually offered at prices well below the market to try to recover at least part of the loss.

In the first half of 2020, bankruptcy filings advanced 34.2%, compared to the same period last year. Of the closed companies, 518.4 thousand (99.2%) were small, with up to 49 employees. The majority, (49.5%) were from the service sector, according to a national survey by Boa Vista SCPC. In the face of this scenario, the neolaw. saw the demand grow with requests for verification of purchase opportunities originating from assets of companies that closed their doors or even the companies themselves.

It is possible to know if the purchase is in fact viable or even with the return sought by the investor, through a legal investigation that gives security to the buyer. A property – ready or unfinished – may be foreclosed as a guarantee for the payment of debts; a point of trade may be involved in money laundering or have labor liabilities, just as an industry is subject to environmental liabilities, etc.

With an opportunity or looking for, it is worth a chat with us.

Auctions

Buying real estate through auctions was already a practice aimed only at investors and “experts” in the subject, who had the knowledge on how to seek the best opportunities, in addition to being willing to face a different type of purchase from the traditional, through real estate and developers.

When purchasing a property at auction, the user can choose to participate in the judicial options, which result from the direct order of a judge, ensuring security in the transaction, as the entire procedure is done with the approval of the Judiciary. We believe that these opportunities must be accompanied by legal support. Find out more by clicking https://www.ltn-a.com/shop
