About the Book
As the world moves closer to a global business framework, business lawyers can no longer afford to ignore the international components of their daily practices. As companies around the world move from the local to the global, lawyers and businesspeople face a myriad of new questions depending on different legal texts and, most importantly, the cultural and legal contexts they encounter. Amid the current financial and economic hardships around the world, South America has increasingly attracted the eyes of the world. While most nations faced recession, South America's estimated GDP growth has increased.
This new book, A Legal Guide to Doing Business in South America, discusses the legal environment of 10 major countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela. Each chapter was written by experts who have first-hand experience advising foreign companies doing business in South America. The chapters focus on national regulations that affect the lives of companies aiming to set up operations in these countries, including the regulatory framework; purchase of property; hiring of employees; aspects of environmental, consumer, and antitrust legislation; and other matters.
