Opportunities for members

The activities of the Legal Committee are directed to enabling NBCC members to broaden their knowledge of the legal aspects of doing business in Brazil, from a practical, business-oriented point of view.


Whenever possible, the Legal Committee will distribute to NBCC members papers containing a summary of the matters discussed at meetings. Providing NBCC members with sources for research and references to articles on the matters dealt with at meetings will be one of the committee’s priorities.
