The current business environment is predominantly international, dominated by an extensive multiplicity of contractual, regulatory and legislative frameworks. Although these instruments aim to ensure the protection of international investors, in practice, they lead to difficulties in interpretation and navigation.

IIn a constantly changing world, where time is absolutely invaluable and where innovation and internationalization are constant emphases, it is important to be endowed with the competence and experience necessary to fully understand the normative framework. It is just as important to anticipate and prevent, from the first moment, potential litigation, by giving current, differentiated and comprehensive legal advice.

In an increasingly global world where it is increasingly common that contracts are made in an international environment, it is especially important to know the idiosyncrasies of the legal systems involved and how they relate to each other. The first major challenge is thus to ensure that all parties have the same understanding of the contractual rules and their scope.

Equally important is to ensure the contractual basis of the necessary conditions of feasibility and prompt resolution of any disputes, which presupposes not only a conscious knowledge of the legislative framework, but also the practice of resolution procedures.

Recent years have witnessed the creation of favorable conditions for the flourishing of investment property markets, stimulated by innovation in the transport and tourism sectors, increasing ease of movement of people and, in particular, reduced investor confidence in traditional banking savings solutions. These factors coexist in an environment of low financial costs and virtually no deposit payment by the main banking systems worldwide.

This environment has attracted not only institutional investors - such as investment funds and pension funds - but also small savers, and the existence of a global market of real estate investors is undeniable today.

However, real estate investment in an international environment is dominated by broad local challenges based on the diversity of concepts and rules, and it is common for each legal system to adopt a specific configuration of property rights, procedures and costs of acquisition, maintenance, exploitation and disposal of real estate assets, as well as their taxation in the various stages of real estate investment.

The beginning of the 21st century is marked by structural changes in corporate and entrepreneurial realities. Today, more than ever, industries are reinventing themselves and companies are transforming their businesses at a high speed as new global and digital markets are created and expanded.

The pressures of globalization and technological innovation lead companies to seek growth stability in expansion through global business models.

Our mission as legal partners of our clients is to anticipate legal and reputational risks in a world of consumption that is increasingly ubiquitous and immediate.

The globalized world of today is facilitated by the rapid movement of capital, without which it would not be possible.

However, the same globalized world has been imposing increased capital controls and compliance requirements through increasingly complex international regulation.

In order to meet the challenges of finance/banking markets, especially at the international level, it is crucial for international investors' advocates to master the practice of banking systems, mechanisms for greater transparency, and their interconnection with international tax policies.

Governments all over the world are presently implementing tributary policies that seek to provide greater financial transparency over international operations, as well as more effective taxation of international returns.

The capacity to understand these regulatory tendencies and to compare in real time different realities are fundamental for the success of any international investment operation.

Now, more than ever, it is necessary to have a deep understanding of national and international tax laws, as well as practical knowledge on how various tax authorities perform in the respective positions regarding repatriated returns or non-foreign reserves.
