Overview

If the expansion strategy of your company involves consolidations, acquisitions, equity participation increases, business partnerships, or business practices that may involve a material market impact, you need to understand the risks related to competition law and know how to address them.

We have a recognized history of success in representing our clients before CADE, having worked in some of the most complex mergers thus far reported. We are particularly active in conducting mergers related to transactions between large Brazilian companies, cross-border transactions reported simultaneously in several countries, and also in transactions involving regulated markets that require articulation and coordination with CADE and other regulatory agencies involved. 

In the area of investigation into anticompetitive conduct, we have partaken in virtually all important cases analyzed by CADE, including major international investigations replicated in Brazil in recent years. 

Our work in developing and implementing antitrust compliance programs is also recognized. We identify critical points according to our clients' activities, describe the risks and the measures that may reduce them, and prepare training programs and monitor these measures for success.

Finally, we provide support to our clients in litigation involving issues of economic law and prepare studies and opinions in these areas to support our clients’ growth and innovation strategies.
