The article analyzes the historical background of the Brazilian Competition experience, including legislation and practice, culminating with the entry into force of a new Competition Law in 2012.
The new law brought comprehensive changes in the Brazilian practice such as the pre-merger review system and the unification of agencies, as well as new criteria for notification of M&A and fines. The article also examines the recent modifications in the Brazilian leniency and settlements policies and the incipient antitrust private enforcement initiatives.
