Regulatory & Trade Law
National, Regional and Local Government Authorities, Investment, Currency Exchange and Consumer Prices and Protection Agencies, Antitrust and Anti-dumping Authorities, National Health Service bodies are just a few of the many actors a Company has to deal with to advance its investments and business activities in Latin American countries.
At the time a company determines that an international business operation will take place, its plans are likely to involve fulfilling multiple local administrative consents and authorizations, proceedings, public applications and other institutional and governmental formalities.
Regulatory obligations, antitrust & anti-dumping legislation, price regulations and consumer protection limitations as well as obtaining official licenses, permits and authorizations relevant for a business, trade or endeavor need to be examined when projecting the same and before advancing with them as they tend to materially impact the structure and execution of the relevant business, trade or endeavor.
