It is not new that the world is changing drastically. What is new, specially in Brazil, is that laws have begun to catch up with such changes, generating an update in regulations in different areas. In recent years, Brazil approved a law updating regulations on Biodiversity, another one updating the Innovation Law, the President enacted the Brazilian Data Protection Law, and many other bills were approved. Brazil also has approved the new Code of Civil Procedure, an important step towards expediting litigation in Intellectual Property, as well as the Mediation Law, that has brought benefits to those who wish to solve conflicts without involving the judiciary. Additionally, a multitude of bills are currently in discussion in the Brazilian Congress, such as the bill that regulates lobbying activities and bills that target fake news, which goes to show that this proactive behavior of the Brazilian government to update the country’s regulations will not fade.
Brazilian and foreign companies alike, have realized that it is necessary to modernize and conform to these new regulations in order to do business in Brazil in a lawful, transparent, and effective manner.
