Pinheiro Neto Advogados has practiced in the competition area since the early 1960’s, when administrative proceedings dealing with anticompetitive practices were still incipient in Brazil. During the 1990’s, in the context of the opening of the Brazilian economy, new laws were enacted, which provided for a better description of practices in restraint of trade and defined them as crime. Since then, the firm has gained reputation in the practice of this area of law.
With unparalleled experience on both the domestic and international levels, the competition practice of Pinheiro Neto Advogados offers counsel in virtually every aspect of competition law, drawing on the support of other practice areas of the firm and on the collaboration of renowned economists and technical experts, if necessary. The very nature of the competition practice requires from our firm strict control of conflicts of interests, strict confidentiality, proactive conduct and permanent interface with clients.
