Competition Law and Policy in Latin America: Recent Developments
Edited by Paulo da Silveira
The Latin American countries, both individually and as a community, are poised to become increasingly important in the international recognition and enforcement of competition law. Recent policy developments in the region are particularly instructive on cross-border mergers and international cartel investigations. Although this book's focus is on Latin America, its in-depth exploration of areas such as information exchange among competition authorities, compliance, settlements and remedies are of great value and interest to competition lawyers and policymakers worldwide.
Including numerous recent cases and best practice indicators, the contributors - competition authority officials, practitioners, academics and economists - cover such topics and issues as the following:
antitrust compliance programs;
bid rigging in public procurement;
use of indirect evidence in investigations;
shareholders' damages claims;
relation between antitrust and intellectual property; and
There are country-specific chapters on particular developments in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Mexico and Paraguay.
Highlighting the importance of international competition regulatory cooperation, this insightful book offers both practical guidance and food for thought to lawyers at national competition authorities, corporate counsel, and other competition law practitioners and academics.
