Public and Regulatory Law - Projects
The number of private companies involved in businesses with regulated industries, public services, and government entities increases as the Brazilian economy grows. In the following years, one expects a significant growth of private investment in privatization processes, infrastructure, oil&gas, power, defense and security, technology, telecommunication, water and sewage treatment, health and life sciences, among many others. New government agencies and bodies are being created or reorganized; industry regulations and requirements are becoming more stringent; public procurement requirements become more complex. Tenders have become more competitive, and subject to tighter compliance controls from government entities. It has become common to have disputes in the administrative, judicial, and arbitration courts.
