The Latin American Regional Forum of the International Bar Association presents a comprehensive, innovative guide to doing business in Latin America, covering 15 jurisdictions: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru Uruguay, Venezuela.
The guide focuses on the common pitfalls and cultural differences of doing business throughout the region. Each country has developed four different chapters, covering foreign investment, capital markets, rendering of public services and real estate regulations, while Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama and Uruguay each have an additional chapter about offshore companies services.
This is the second edition (2018) of a project that the Forum intends to update every two years. The Forum is grateful for the contributions from all participant firms, which made a tremendous effort not only to cover the legal aspects, but also to work together in the best interest of the legal community in Latin America.
This guide is an important tool for both investors and the legal profession when approaching certain critical aspects in Latin American jurisdictions.
