Brazil is the second fastest growing economy in the world. This development has been stimulated by the progressive projects that have been put in place. For such an economy to run smoothly there is need of better, strict and flexible laws that are meant to safeguard the rights of its citizens while at the same time creating a room for efficient resource management.
The Brazilian law heavily derives from Portuguese, Italian, French and German Civil Laws. The country’s supreme law is its Federal Constitution, which was enacted in 1988. This constitution looks at Brazil as the Federative Republic that is formed by 26 insoluble federal states and municipalities as well as the Federal Districts. These states have the power to adopt their own constitutions and laws. However, the autonomy of these laws is subjected and limited by the principle of the Federal Constitution.
The municipalities are also experiencing a limited autonomy and are regulated and follow the dictates of the constitutions of the states they belong.
The Federal District, on the other hand, blends the constitutions of both the municipalities and states, and this is equivalent to a constitution. It is known as Organic Law and must also observe and obey the terms laid down by the Federal Constitution.
For one to be able to navigate this complex judicial system, one needs to acquire the services of a highly skilled and a professional law practitioner. In Brazil, these talents are in abundance but only a few of them stand out. One of these few individuals would be Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho.
