Recent Antitrust Enforcement In Latin America: What Every US Company Needs To Know
January 26, 2011
New York, NY
Latin American antitrust enforcers are now more active than ever. In Brazil, Mexico, and Argentina – Latin America’s largest economies – antitrust is quickly becoming one of the most significant regulatory concern, and is now on the front pages. On September 22, 2010, the Brazilian Competition Regulator, CADE, issued the second largest fine (US$ 1.8 billion) ever issued by any competition agency worldwide. In Mexico, the criminalization of antitrust offenses has been hotly debated by both parties in the current presidential campaign. In Argentina, a leniency bill was sent to congress in December 2010, and is likely to have a significant impact on cartel enforcement. Every US company with investments in Latin America should be attuned to these recent changes in the law and enforcement policies. The goal of the session is to provide insight to executives, policy specialists, and counsel, that they can use in formulating their Latin American strategies for 2011.
Olivier Antoine is one of the moderators and Harry Burnett will provide the welcoming remarks. Crowell & Moring is hosting this event in their New York Office.
