Who's Who Legal Competition: Economists

Silvia holds a PhD degree in economics from the São Paulo School of Economics at Fundação Getúlio Vargas (FGV). Her thesis concerned competition policy, analysing empirically the concept of countervailing power and the Brazilian healthcare sector. The research won first prize in the award sponsored by the Ministry of Finance’s secretariat for economic monitoring. In the academic year 2011–2012, Silvia was a visiting scholar at the Institute of Latin American Studies, Columbia University, where she researched antitrust and regulatory matters of the healthcare sector, and served as a visiting professor for the graduate course on the history of the Brazilian economy.

Silvia is currently LCA’s senior project manager in competition economics, with expertise in sectoral economics and extensive experience in public policy, regulation, commercial defence and the requirements of antitrust authorities. Among the most recent high-profile Brazilian merger cases, Sílvia was involved in the economic team that advised on the settlement reached in JV SBT/Record/RedeTV (TV broadcast), CSN/Usiminas (steel), Sanofi-Aventis/Medley (pharmaceuticals), Pão de Açucar/Casas Bahia/Ponto Frio (durable goods retail), DASA/MD1 (healthcare), Camargo Corrêa/Cimpor (cement) and Oxiteno/American Chemical. The last two cases were nominated at the third and fourth GCR annual awards, for the Merger Control Matter of the Year (Americas). In 2015, at the fifth awards ceremony, LCA’s team won an award for the Anhanguera/Kroton merger (education). She was also professor of microeconomics and industrial organisation at FGV and at Fundação Instituto de Pesquisas Econômicas (FIPE). Sílvia is an officer in charge of economic issues at IBRAC, Brazil's main professional body for competition practitioners.

WWL says: Sources consider Sílvia Fagá de Almeida “a top economist” and praise her ability to provide “innovative approaches to help solve difficult cases".
