Competition Law and Litigation

The excellence and experience of our founders in the area of Antitrust Law was the foremost reason for the creation of Grinberg Cordovil Advogados (GCA).

Since the foundation, we have been recognized for acting in high-profile cases before the Administrative Council for Economic Defense (CADE), either because of the size of the clients represented, the novelty of the themes addressed, or their importance for the development of the area as a whole.

Throughout the years, we have represented the most diverse clients, both national and foreign, from different industries and in various procedures. Among them, we highlight the advisory services to clients who work in new technology markets, such as, internet companies, e-commerce operators, media and telecommunications companies, and also companies in the traditional sectors of the economy, such as pharmaceuticals, chemicals, auto parts, fuel distribution, ports, payment methods, nutrition, among others.

Our team offers legal advice on strategies to be adopted to prevent such cases, conducting audits, and evaluating commercial practices and regulations created by Brazilian authorities, from the point of view of competition law.

Our lawyers act before CADE, the Judiciary, and regulatory agencies in diverse matters related to competition defense, whether it be in the preventive, advisory, or litigation area, including:

  1. Concentration acts arising from mergers, incorporations, joint ventures, associative agreements, among other transactions;
  2. Advisory on cartel investigations and other anticompetitive practices, such as discrimination, abuse of dominant position, refusal to sell, resale price fixing, predatory pricing, etc., with vast experience in defense and negotiation agreements with the authority, such as Settlement Agreements (TCC) and Leniency Agreements;
  3. Compliance Programs;
  4. Evaluation of competitive risks arising from commercial policies, like distribution and supply contracts, discount programs, among others.


Because we are experienced, we are direct and objective.
This guarantees the best response to our customers.
