We provide advice on matters related to the prior control regime for business merger transactions. For this, we have a multidisciplinary team of lawyers that allows us to advise our clients in all economic sectors, regulated or unregulated.
Our firm has extensive experience assisting domestic and foreign companies in the prior assessment of the applicability of the merger control regime, with respect to various types of transactions. This includes the analysis of thresholds and other factors to determine whether the transaction must go through prior control or not, the design of protocols for handling sensitive information (clean teams), the development of policies for the management of databases (VDRs) in order to avoid any possible anti-competitive behavior resulting from the exchange of information, the collaboration with our other practice areas in the structure and design of the transaction, the review of the transaction documents (confidentiality agreements, sales agreements, etc.), among others.
