PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND

Vinicius is the founding partner of VMCA. His practice is mainly focused on competition and regulatory matters. He has substantial experience representing clients before the Brazilian antitrust authority in complex merger and acquisitions, negotiations for settlements and leniency agreements, and also in administrative proceedings, whether they are focused on unilateral or collusive conduct. Vinicius also advises clients in the stablishing, monitoring, and reviewing of compliance programs, due diligences, and business practices in general. His experience also includes representing companies in the interface with Brazilian regulatory agencies and authorities from various sectors. His clients include national and international companies from a wide-range of sectors, such as telecommunications, fuel, infrastructure, and technology.

Vinicius served in Brazil’s federal government from 2005 to 2016. As President of the Administrative Council for Economic Defense (CADE), he not only took part in decisions and investigations of several cases in a wide variety of economic sectors, but he was also 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 changes in the Brazilian Antitrust Policy led CADE to be recognized three times as “Agency of the Year – Americas” by the British publication Global Competition Review (GCR), and positioned the authority among the eight top competition defense agencies in the world. 

Within the Brazilian Competition Defense System (SBDC, in the Portuguese acronym), Vinicius also served as Secretary of Economic Law and Commissioner at CADE. As Secretary, in addition to his work on antitrust policy, he actively took part in the building of the National Consumer Defense System, oversaw recalls and carried out investigations of consumer law violations.

Vinicius also served as Chief of Staff of the Secretariat of Human Rights, where he took part in the drafting of several public policies, including the policy for education in human rights and policies regarding minority rights. During that time, he articulated the human rights agenda within government and civil society (both private companies and NGOs).

Previously, Vinicius served as legislative advisor in the Brazilian Senate and in the House of Representatives of the State of São Paulo, where he acquired vast experience in the drafting, analysis, and negotiation of legislative proposals.

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 magazine, and was appointed the Vice-Chair of the International Competition Network (ICN), 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.

Vinicius serves as an arbitrator of the Chamber of Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration of the Center of Industries of São Paulo (Ciesp) and the Federation of Industries of São Paulo (Fiesp) and is also a member of the Special Commission of Economic Law of the Brazilian Bar Association (OAB). He has been a featured speaker at several international forums, including the Competition Committee at the OECD, the Intergovernmental Group of Experts on Competition Law and Policy of the UNCTAD, and events of the American Bar Association (ABA), the ICN, Fordham University, Georgetown University and the New York State Bar Association, among others.
