Competition and antitrust

Within: Competition and antitrust

The 'very seasoned partners' at Demarest Advogados have 'both consultive and litigation abilities' and receive plaudits for their 'deep technical skills'. The antitrust team has expanded its cross-border work and also picked up a number of significant new clients. Meanwhile, it has expanded its market share in merger filings, thanks to both the strength of its M&A department and the reputation of its standalone competition practice. Paola Pugliese and senior associate Milena Fernandes Mundim successfully represented several companies, including leading financial institutions, to obtain approval from CADE for a greenfield joint venture. In internal developments, the team was further bolstered by the arrival of Daniel Oliveira Andreoli from TozziniFreire Advogados. Bruno Drago is another key partner.
