Government & Public Administration
LCA produces sectoral analysis and research focusing on the identification of bottlenecks and opportunities for various industries, as input for public policy proposals to intensify growth and development. We specialize in consulting on taxation and tax-related issues.
In regulation, LCA has substantial experience in a very wide array of sectors and topics. Our analysis is designed to underpin the development of alternatives and their defense for approval by regulators.
In competition economics, LCA acts for clients in antitrust and merger approval proceedings conducted by the Brazilian Competition Defense System (SBDC), analyzing the impact on competition of mergers, acquisitions, and horizontal inter-company agreements, from the preparation stage – analysis of competitive risks and support for financial planning of the transaction, jointly with LCA’s Investment & Corporate Finance practice – to adjudication by CADE.
LCA’s experience ranges from formulation of argumentation strategies, technical opinions and notes to interaction with authorities and general support for companies and counsel. We also work at the regulation-competition interface.
