Cavelier Abogados is proud to present again the latest edition of Doing Business in Colombia.
The country has experienced significant changes since the First Edition was published in 2000. This volume includes a general overview of the Colombian legal system, regulations relating to business incorporation, labor, immigration and some specific samples of the main civil and commercial contracts used in the country. It also includes the latest developments in environmental law, intellectual property law, unfair competition, zoning law, taxes, international treaties, state contracts and regulations regarding foreign investment.
The authors have prepared special chapters to provide in-depth coverage of certain matters that have gained importance such as asset laundering prevention, economic insolvency and corporate governance that will provide readers with an accurate idea of the legal situation of a country that is quickly becoming very attractive for foreign investment. Given the number of free trade agreements Colombia is party to and the growth of its national economy, Doing Business in Colombia is an important and timely work.
