Overview

Bruchou has one of the most important competition/antitrust law practices in Argentina, both in the fields of economic concentrations and restrictive practices investigations.

We advise buyers, sellers and financial advisors in almost all major M&A deals in Argentina and have a top-tier litigation team, which further boosts the antitrust practice activity in restrictive practices cases.

Our team has a significant volume of procedures pending before the Argentine antitrust authority (Comisión Nacional de Defensa de la Competencia), including notifications, advisory opinions and conduct cases (individual and cartel).  We also advise several companies on day-to-day matters related to professional Chambers, product launches, contingency analysis, etc.

The core of the team is made by attorneys dealing with M&A transactions, assisted by corporate counsels, litigators and regulatory experts at Bruchou.

Our team has extensive experience in the early detection of antitrust issues as part of the advice provided to our clients, both in their individual transactions and in day-to-day matters.
