No fewer than seventeen merger control regimes are in force in South America, and several of them are new, which accentuates the proliferation of these rules throughout the world. Appropriation and implementation of these rules is considered a major challenge by all the protagonists. This is why this book is of interest to all practitioners dealing with Latin American companies. Pamela Sittenfeld, lawyer and representative of Costa Rica, and Paulo Burnier da Silveira, former commissioner of the Brazilian authority, professor at the University of Brasilia and currently an OECD expert, have the great merit of having been able to bring together a team of thirty members who presented each of the seventeen regimes in parallel, to which was even added a presentation of the regime of the Caribbean Community.
