André Marques Gilberto (Marques Gilberto & Oliveira Felix) and Priscila Brolio Gonçalves (Vella Pugliese Buosi & Guidoni) have a short new piece on Settlement as a Way Out in Hard-Core Cartel Investigations in Brazil: Practice and Problems.
ABSTRACT: Since May 2007, the law has permitted settlements of cartel investigations in Brazil. To date, there have been eight settlements, a figure that, while not trivial, is not very impressive (especially when compared to the increasing number of investigations initiated by the Brazilian authorities). This article explores possible reasons why settlements are not adopted more frequently.
