In the past few years Latin American countries have taken giant steps to reposition their competition authorities in the global antitrust arena, granting them much greater autonomy both domestically and internationally. This is the first book to offer an in-depth analysis of this complex scenario. At the heart of the presentation are seven chapters detailing the competition regimes of the most active national jurisdictions in the region - Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia. Mexico, Peru, and Uruguay. Written by practicing experts with considerable hands-on experience in their respective countries, each of these chapters provides a comprehensive description and explanation of the evolution, current state, and prospects for antitrust in the country. Preceding these country-by-country analyses are more general chapters on the use of economic analysis and on the special field of the information and communications technology industry, as well as chapters on the working of competition law in countries with regulated markets and in the cluster of Central American countries. Topics addressed encompass the following and more: * relevant institutions and legislation; * cartel investigations; * unilateral conduct policies; * merger review; * international coordination; * enforcement; and * remedies. Each chapter includes analysis of relevant case law, allowing the reader to gauge the positions, views, and tendencies of each competition law regime. The authors also pay attention to the specificities and idiosyncrasies that are so important for a correct understanding of the practical realities of competition policy and enforcement. With its wide-ranging and in depth-approach, this book provides an incomparable analysis of a challenging region poised to become increasingly important in the international recognition and enforcement of antitrust law. It is in this sense an essential guide for lawyers, economists, corporations, academics, and government officials interested in understanding where competition law is, and where is it is going to, in Latin America.

This book offers an unparalleled analysis of the emerging law and economics of competition policy in Latin America. Nearly all Latin American countries now have competition laws and agencies to enforce them. Yet, these laws and agencies are relatively young. The relative youth of Latin American competition agencies and the institutional and political environment in which they operate limit the ability of agencies to effectively address anti-competitive conduct. Competition policy is a tool to overcome anti-market traditions in Latin America. Effective competition policy is critical to assisting in the growth of Latin American economies, their global competitiveness, and improving the welfare of domestic consumers. This book provides new region specific insights on how to better achieve these aims. This authoritative volume will be of particular interest to competition agencies, academics in law, economics and Latin American Studies, practitioners around the world in the areas of antitrust and competition policy, policymakers, and journalists.

Brazil's power to attract international investors has become irresistible. Large-scale economic development, massive infrastructure projects, substantial agribusiness and commodities markets, and newly discovered oil and natural gas resources-combined with improvements in social standards and a consolidation of democratic institutions-have spearheaded the emergence of Brazil as a formidable global economy challenging the developed nations. This is the first book in English to provide a detailed guide to the ways into and around the Brazilian economy. Thirty seven leading Brazilian practitioners describe and interpret laws and regulations governing business set-up procedures, transactions, contracts, financing, taxation, securities, intellectual property, real estate, dispute resolution, environmental protection, labor, insolvency, competition, trade remedies, anti-corruption, private funds and insurance. They explore every issue likely to be important to investors, including the following: * competition, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures; * contractual clauses, statutory requirements on specific agreements; * tax incentives available for infrastructure projects; * listing and offering requirements in capital and securities markets; * licensing, franchising, and other intellectual property agreements; * civil proceedings, arbitration, and the mechanisms of dispute resolution; * the structure of the Brazilian judiciary system; * rules on conflicts of law and competence of jurisdiction; * real property acquisition and development; * environmental liabilities; * forms of employment and employment contracts; * insolvency and bankruptcy proceedings; * trade remedy system; * anti-corruption legislation; * private equity, venture capital and investment funds; and * insurance and re-insurance. Taking the point of view of a commercial lawyer required to draft and negotiate agreements governed by Brazilian law, each author contributes particular expertise to this incomparable resource for potential and actual investors in Brazil and their counsel. Thoroughly up-to-date in its exploration and understanding of the legal transformations that are taking place in Brazil, this book will be invaluable to corporate lawyers, investors, academics, and policymakers interested in Brazil's role in the global economy.
