São Paulo, Brazil (PRWEB) March 12, 2013
On Friday, March 8, Greg Barnett, American lawyer and foreign legal consultant with Angélico Advogados, spoke as a panelist at the UK / Miami / Brazil Business Conference as part of BritWeek Miami. The topic of the panel discussion was “Doing Business in Brazil - Balancing Opportunity & Risk.”
BritWeek is an annual, week-long event that celebrates the contributions of Britain to the United States in the areas of film, fashion, music, the automobile industry, and science. This year was the first time that the event was held outside of California. In Miami, the event’s Business Conference focused on the dynamic relationship between the UK, Miami, and Brazil while exploring Miami as a strategic location as an international business center and gateway for American and UK companies seeking to do business in Brazil.
According to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, Brazil is the 5th most attractive country for foreign direct investment through 2014. That’s one of the reasons that Barnett is coordinating a unique team of lawyers at Angélico Advogados that specializes in international legal services that help small and midsize companies based in the United States with their business activities in Brazil.
“All eyes are on Brazil. For foreign investors seeking opportunities abroad, Brazil provides an attractive option,” says Barnett. As Brazil continues to actively encourage foreign investment from the United States, foreign individuals and businesses need legal representation from a Brazilian law firm that understands American business practices.
Angélico Advogados is a Brazilian law firm that has been serving the legal and business needs of clients throughout Brazil for more than 20 years. “Our firm offers non-Brazilian clients both the business and legal assistance they need to succeed in Brazil,” says Marcelo Angélico, founding partner of Angélico Advogados.
Barnett has taken up the challenges of representing American clients in Brazil. Not only do language and cultural barriers exist, but there are also significant differences in legal and business practices that must be effectively navigated. The combination of Barnett’s experience and the resources of Angélico Advogados gives international clients an advantage when doing business in Brazil.
