Special focus: Latin America (87)

The continuing economic evolution of Brazil is seeing its largest companies maintain a domestic focus while foreign businesses look to access consumer and finance markets
Arbitration disputes are an inevitable biproduct of the rise in investment across Latin America, and for which Miami is playing an expanding role in both the pre-contractual and dispute resolution phases, say Pedro J Martinez-Fraga and C Ryan Reetz of Squire Sanders & Dempsey.
To capitalise on the still significant opportunities that exist in Venezuela it is vital to understand the drivers behind government policy and to adapt to a changing economy

The use of arbitration by both companies and states is growing ever-more sophisticated across Latin America as international and regional investment grows, says Oliver Armas, Head of the IDR practice at Chadbourne & Parke in New York
Latin America is a region of continuing interest to Iberian investors. Historical, cultural and linguistic ties make it the international arena in which Spanish and Portuguese companies have often felt most comfortable, indeed it is becoming the first focus of international expansion for many
Latin American businesses are embracing arbitration to resolve regional and international disputes with Miami a preferred arbitral seat

For many years Brazil's economy had been hailed as the "next big thing", now even among the BRIC countries it continues to stand out

The opening up of the Cuban economy continues albeit on the State's own terms

It is important to Cuba that there is international confidence in the country's legal system and that legal awards will be recognised, says Rodolfo Davalos, President of Cuba's International Commercial Arbitration Court (CCAIC).
In contrast to Europe and North America, Latin America has hardly been affected by the global credit crisis, say lawyers in the region. Many of its economies are even experiencing significant growth, capitalising on the continuing strong international demand for the region's mineral and agricultural commodities. As a result, they say, many parts of the region are seeing an upturn in transactional activity, and increasing levels of both inbound and outbound investment
