 |  August 9, 2021

Mattos Filho announced that Eduardo Frade is now part of the Antitrust practice area at Mattos Filho, and will be based at our Brasília office.

Eduardo’s arrival serves to reinforce Mattos Filho’s role in serving domestic and international clients in Brazil’s capital, and in acting as an intermediary with government agencies such as the Administrative Council for Economic Defense (CADE), Brazil’s antitrust authority. 

Eduardo has vast experience in a wide range of antitrust and regulatory matters, including mergers, cartels, leniency, abuse of dominance, compliance, advocacy and general antitrust counseling. He has extensive government experience, having served in senior positions at CADE, the Ministry of Planning, and the Civil Aviation Agency. 

During his tenure of more than 10 years at CADE, Eduardo was one of the leaders in restructuring the agency and implementing the new antitrust law in 2012, acting first as Deputy General Superintendent in charge of mergers and dominance, and later as General Superintendent. Eduardo is featured as a leading antitrust lawyer in several industry publications. 

In its last “40 under 40” edition, Global Competition Review named him one of the top 40 antitrust lawyers in the world under the age of 40. Eduardo has been a consultant to the IDB and the OECD, and is currently a member of the International Cartel Task Force and co-chair of the Corporate Counseling Committee of the American Bar Association – Antitrust Law Section. He was a guest professor at the FGV Law Program, and has published books and articles on competition law in Brazil and abroad.
