The challenge of growing in Brazil's complex political and regulatory environment was the topic discussed in the city of Miami - FL (USA), which hosted the annual conference of the International Bar Association - IBA, one of the largest events in the global legal community.

During the conference, BVA Advogados, renowned Brazilian law firm of the new generation, held the event "BVA Talks - Brazilian Business Trends" at Lennox Hotel Miami, which had keynote speakers Georgios Frangulis (founder and CEO of Oakberry, the largest Açaí company in the world) and Rudá Pellini (founder of the cryptocurrency mining company Arthur Mining and author of the best-seller "O Futuro do Dinheiro," edited by Editora Gente).

Felipe Barreto Veiga, partner and leader of BVA Advogados for M&A, Private Equity, and Venture Capital practices, hosted the event and mediated the talk, with the presence of almost 50 entrepreneurs, investors, and lawyers from different countries, including Brazilians in Florida.

The office, which already serves clients in more than 70 countries, is preparing to begin its expansion strategy into the US and has plans to open a branch outside Brazil soon. According to Barreto Veiga: "Miami is the largest hub of Brazilian and Latin American entrepreneurs and investors in the US. Even living outside Brazil, these entrepreneurs and investors have the characteristic of continuing to invest and do business in Brazil - therefore, our main objective is to help them in carrying out these investments and businesses, facilitating the connection with our country, while we have strengthened our presence in the US.".

The speakers discussed the challenges of entrepreneurship in the US and attracting investments in the country and Brazil, as well as talking about their trajectories at the head of their respective companies and commenting on the prospects of the Brazilian economy for the coming years, given the presidential election result. "Contrary to what many imagine, there is also much bureaucracy to undertake in the US, depending on the type of activity.", highlighted Rudá Pellini.

After announcing Oakberry's sponsorship with the only American team in F1, the main category in world motorsport, Georgios reinforces the importance of the American market: "Our global expansion takes place through the US, where we already have a large number of stores. (…) And in the last few weeks, we closed a sponsorship deal with the American team Haas."

Felipe Barreto Veiga commented on the current moment in Brazil, highlighting that: "The election result and the reaction of the national and international financial and capital markets demonstrate that the Brazilian economy is very powerful and that there is an increasing maturation of democracy in the country, reinforcing Brazil's qualities and security against other Latin American nations. In addition, the next president will have challenges in Congress, which is important to expect a moderate term, in line with what the market expects."
