Models and Guides
The Latin American Private Equity & Venture Capital Association produces localized Latin American versions of model legal documents drafted by the National Venture Capital Association and the British Venture Capital Association. These standardized documents aim to reflect best practices and to educate industry newcomers on how investments can be structured, terms and terminology, and the broader investment process.
Documents are intended to serve as a starting point only, should be tailored to meet specific requirements, and should not be construed as legal advice for any particular facts or circumstances. These documents are produced by members of the LAVCA Legal Committee, with peer review and contributions from local partner organizations, and drafted in Spanish, Portuguese and English.
