An Introduction to the Brazilian Legal Marketplace

In 2009, Brazil successfully bid to be the first South American country to host the summer Olympics. The world was optimistic about the emerging economy’s capacity to address the challenges of violent crime, urban pollution and lacklustre facilities. However, since coverage of the 2014 World Cup highlighted a faltering economy with crumbling infrastructure, there are doubts about the country’s ability to monopolise on the mega-event. The World Cup failed to deliver on the promise of increasing the nation’s visibility to investors and tourism; there is now little optimism that the 2016 Olympics in Rio will have a more profound effect.
