Setting up in Rio (Rio de Janeiro)

Hi guys

I am working with a company who want to set up a new LLC in Rio. The company is based in Buenos Aires, but we are aware that the law requires a manager who has a permanent work visa for Brazil or is a Brazilian citizen. We are looking for any general advice on doing this, in particular:

How long is it likely to take to set up a new LLC in Brazil?
Once set up is it likely the company will be able to get a work visa for me (a British citizen) so that I can go and help them on the ground? If so, how long is this likely to take, and is it a costly process?

Any advice would be much appreciated, as we are trying to avoid spending tooooo much time with expensive lawyers on the basics :)

Thanks

Matt
