Prof. Susan Scafidi's - the main reference in Fashion Law - #1 advice for anyone who wants to be a fashion lawyer is to first and foremost "excel at law" (read the entire post about this here).
With that in mind, I highly recommend reading (and getting to know) the publication entitled Getting the Deal Through.
GTDT is a database of law and regulation in 52 practice areas and more than 150 jurisdictions containing concise explanations to the most important legal and regulatory matters that arise in business deals and disputes worldwide.
Our firm contributed with the Chapter Getting the Deal Through - Trademarks 2013. The piece was written by senior partner Philippe Bhering and myself.
So, ready to know all about trademarks in Brazil? Read and download the full chapter here.
