Argentina's competition bar

As Argentina touts economic reforms, its competition bar awaits promised changes that should boost its workload. Charles McConnell checks in with the antitrust porteños. Nine firms handle most competition work in Argentina. For years, that has meant substantial hours spent on merger filings, due to the low threshold for notifications. The National Commission for the Defence of Competition (CNDC) spent almost all of its time and resources on the statutory obligation to review these mergers, which could be notified either before or after closing. But that is all set to shift in the wake of a massive overhaul to the country’s competition law passed in May 2018. It creates a new, independent competition authority and a specialist appeals court, as well as establishing a leniency programme, higher fines for antitrust infringements and the introduction of a pre-merger control regime.
