The antitrust team at Brazil-based consultancy Tendências Consultoria Integrada is led by Fabiana Tito and Ernesto Guedes and includes highly regarded consultants such as Elizabeth Farina, formerly president of Brazil’s competition authority, who is currently seconded from Tendências to the Brazilian Sugarcane Industry Association.

Over the past year, Tendências Consultoria Integrada’s antitrust practice has advised companies on a number of deals, including the complex merger between Continental ContiTech and Veyance Technologies. The firm also advises various companies on compliance policies, as well as antitrust risk when negotiating deals under the pre-notification merger system.

Tendências has increased its work in cartel cases, working on the global cement industry, hermetic compressors, retail fuel dealers and others. The team has provided economic support to a number of private damages claimants, which in Brazil have begun to gain importance following an increase in the number of cartel fines. The consultancy also provided antitrust advice and data support in a range of behavioural cases and regulatory issues for companies in the telecoms, oil and petrol, online payment and financial sectors.
