Abstract
This article aims at exploring features commonly neglected by specialists in their analysis of the brand new Competition Law enacted in Brazil this December 2011. After a brief presentation of the history of Brazilian antitrust evolution, we will move on to explore those upsides and downsides of the new legal text. We start by quickly overviewing the most remarkable changes brought out by the new law – and thus thoroughly commented in the recent literature.
