LATIN AMERICA’S BIGGEST ECONOMY

Comprehensive legal and business experience, plus contacts and knowledge

Brazil’s USD1.8 trillion economy is the largest in Latin America as well as the world’s ninth-largest, and the United States is Brazil’s second-largest trading partner, with two-way trade in goods and services an estimated $105.1 billion in 2019. U.S. FDI in Brazil was $81.7 billion in 2019, led by the manufacturing, finance and insurance, and mining sectors.

Rodrigo Guedes Nunes heads up Harris Bricken’s Brazil office in São Paulo, using his legal and business experience, combined with a vast array of South American contacts and knowledge, to help companies from all over the world conduct business in Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay.

Experienced in and knowledgeable about the Asia-Pacific region, Rodrigo has a strong history serving as a bridge to South America for firms headquartered in Asia and Australasia, especially in the areas of due diligence, contract negotiation and arbitration. More broadly, our Brazil attorneys regularly work closely with our teams in the United States, Europe, Asia and Mexico to manage a wide range of client legal matters across Latin America.

In Latin America, Harris Bricken understands the laws, the legal systems, the regulatory environments and the broader global trade context, and our counsel takes into account all these elements as we help our clients develop winning strategies.
