An interactive guide to merger control activity in South America -
Merger control in South America is on the rise, with many new jurisdictions having adopted and started to enforce stricter pre-closing merger control laws over the past decade. This interactive map provides a general overview of merger control activity in the region and highlights the most important recent developments in each jurisdiction.
Brazil has firmly established itself as a significant global merger control jurisdiction. In addition, following the establishment of a pre-closing merger control regime in 2017, Chile has been increasing its visibility in this space and so has Colombia. With new or amended laws in Argentina, Peru and Uruguay we expect that the number of active merger control regimes in South America will increase.
