Legal Glossary – Portuguese/English – 2nd edition

The Portuguese/English Legal Glossary is a publication of Britcham, its Committees and its Legal and Tax Subcommittees from São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Rio Grande do Sul. Due to the success of its 1st edition and requests from Britcham members and the country's leading bookstores, this publication is now in its 2nd edition, with over 5,000 entries.

The aim of this Legal Glossary is precisely to help Brazilians and foreigners use the English and Portuguese languages in their daily activities, given that most international contracts are negotiated in English. It is designed for Brazilians, foreigners, investors, law firms, audit and accounting offices, embassies and consulates, financial institutions and insurance companies.

Comments about the book:

"For Brazilian companies to participate in the global market, many barriers must be overcome, most notably the language barrier. This Glossary is a positive contribution to the common language of international commerce, Communication, an essential element in relations among companies from different countries." - Ivan Clark, Project Creator.

"This Legal Glossary is a valiant effort on the part of our Legal and Tax Committees and will certainly be extremely useful for all professionals who regularly use technical-legal English. The market has been waiting for a resource like this for some time, and it will take its place at the right hand of every lawyer involved in international business. Without a doubt, a best seller!" - Marcelo Moura, Chairman Britcham Brazil (09/2007 to 09/2009)
