PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND

Vinicius has served as President of the Administrative Council for Economic Defense – CADE (2012-2016), Secretary of Economic Law (2011-2012), and Commissioner at CADE (2008-2011). Besides taking part in decisions and investigations of several cases in a wide variety of economic sectors, he was responsible for negotiating the approval of the new antitrust law in the Brazilian Congress and, immediately afterwards, for overseeing its implementation. This involved the drafting of legislation and guidelines, including the new leniency and settlement agreement policy, the standards for filling and analysis of mergers, and the compliance and gun jumping guidelines, among other components.

The advances that stemmed from the above mentioned changes in the Brazilian Antitrust Policy led CADE to be recognized three times as Agency of the Year in the Americas, and positioned the authority among the eight top competition defense agencies in the world.

His accomplishments at the national and international level were recognized in 2013, when Vinicius was chosen as one of the 100 personalities of the year by Época, a magazine that then had the third-highest circulation in Brazil, and was appointed the Vice-Chair of the International Competition Network (2013-2016) – an entity that assembles over 130 competition authorities.

In all the positions he has occupied, Vinicius has pursued an intense advocacy agenda, regarding both economic regulation and competition, for the introduction of impact assessment methodologies in normative debates. He has participated in several discussions within the government regarding Brazil’s Internet Law (Marco Civil da Internet), anticorruption legislation, especially Brazil’s current Anticorruption Law, and policies on data protection regulation.
