Doing business in Brazil? Considering the Brazilian market? Want to protect your company’s intellectual property?
Brazil, the world’s fifth most populous country with a large and rapidly growing middle class, offers significant economic opportunities to Kiwi companies. Our economic relationship is driven by investment – with New Zealand investment in Brazil estimated to be worth around NZ$300m.
As New Zealand companies, including in agro-technology, get more involved in Brazil it is increasingly important that they focus on adequate protection of their intellectual property. This is a complicated but vital area if New Zealand businesses want to ensure long-term economic gain from their business operations in Brazil.
The aim of these seminars is to raise awareness in New Zealand about Brazil’s intellectual property regime (legal and de facto) and the importance of protecting intellectual property. The seminars will provide companies with introductory, high-level advice and guidance on the issues they need to consider when doing business in Brazil, including discussing potential options for seeking specialist advice as appropriate.
Advocacia Pietro Ariboni has 35 years of experience in advising foreigners on how to best protect their intellectual property assets in Brazil. The seminar (and the accompanying written material) will cover:
