Machado Meyer

Machado Meyer is one of Brazil’s leading law firms. We have a fully integrated practice that combines expertise in various areas of the law to offer intelligent legal solutions that contribute to the business growth of our clients and transform realities. We have over 750 professionals and offices in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Porto Alegre, Belo Horizonte, Brasilia and New York, and have been proudly advising many of the largest and most significant companies in the world on Brazilian law.

Our competition and antitrust practice is recognised by clients and relevant publications as one of Brazil’s very best. We have a recognised history of success in representing our clients before the Brazilian authorities, having worked in some of the most complex mergers thus far reported. We are particularly active in conducting cross-border transactions reported simultaneously in several countries, working long before the operations are filed by helping clients to identify potential antitrust risks and develop customised structures to mitigate them. Our team is also highly praised for its experience in the area of investigations and defences in anticompetitive conduct cases, and has also represented clients in many successful negotiations of settlement and leniency agreements. Being leaders in all areas of the competition law and enforcement in Brazil, we have helped numerous clients (often market leaders and major equity holders in their industries) to design innovative business models, thereby assessing the relevant antitrust risks and assisting in the proper structuring of these businesses so as to cope with and mitigate them.
