“One of the best antitrust law firms in Brazil’, Advocacia Jose Del Chiaro fields a ‘small, but highly experienced’ team. The firm has ‘excellent client handling, particularly when dealing with multinationals’, and companies from a broad range of sectors comprise its client base. […] The team also has notable experience advising companies in oppositions against acquisitions. Cartel investigations are another strength.  (The Legal 500, 2019)

Chambers and Partners Latin America has listed our firm as one of Brazil`s top Competition/Antitrust law firms for over a decade.
