Seminar on UK-Brazil Joint Ventures

20 March 2013

With the advent of the Credit Crunch and the consequent decrease in M&A activity, in recent years more and more companies are looking to joint ventures as an expansion tool as well as a market entry strategy, particularly in Emerging Markets.

This event will focused on the global trend for Joint Ventures in a Brazilian context from a commercial, legal and practical perspective.   The panel will discussed the benefits and highlight challenges and pitfalls of entering into a joint venture, focusing on practical points around the creation and management of joint ventures and alliances in Brazil.

The seminar aimed to give companies a view into how to effectively enter Brazil via Joint Ventures, to help them think through the positives, but also the challenges and pitfalls, and how to overcome them to maximize the opportunities offered by this substantial market using the tools available to them.
