Increasingly, Brazil is echoing the global trend of expanding protection to free competition by developing new antitrust legislation and bolstering competition law enforcement.

Here at Cescon Barrieu, the Antitrust team has been an active part of this trend, assisting in some of the country’s most complex merger cases, as well as in the recent wave of cartel investigations and leniency negotiations.

Supported by extensive experience in corporate cases, our Antitrust group regularly assists businesses across all industries in dealing with their most intricate issues involving antitrust matters, including:

● Merger review
● Antitrust litigation
● Cartel investigations

“[The firm] maintains a strong reputation for merger filings, although its competition practice encompasses a broader spread of behavioural work and antitrust compliance.”
