TozziniFreire is nominated for Global Competition Review Awards

TozziniFreire was nominated by the Global Competition Review, a leading international antitrust publication. in the two most important categories of its annual awards: Regional Firm of the Year (Americas) and Matter of the Year.

TozziniFreire has two nominees among the most relevant matters of the year: Luxottica/Essilor and UTC/Rockwell Collins.

We also notified CADE of the ABB/GE Industrial Solutions transaction, nominated in the category "Merger Control Matter of the Year - Europe".

The award will take place in Washington, DC, in March 26.

About TozziniFreire, the publication highlights:

"TozziniFreire has one of the largest antitrust practices in Latin America. Approximately 20% of the leniency agreements signed by CADE were negotiated by TozziniFreire. The competition team also works closely with the firm's top-tier compliance and white-collar practices, especially in face of the large wave of bid-rigging investigations running in parallel by the criminal, anti-corruption and antitrust enforcers. TozziniFreire represented ABB in the gas-insulated switchgear international cartel investigation and in a preliminary probe opened by CADE after receiving a complaint that it hindered competition by requiring hotels to comply with parity clauses when offering accommodation on other websites. The firm also assisted Luxottica in its merger with eyewear product maker Essilor."
