    O objetivo do trabalho é analisar a defesa da concorrência no Brasil após doze anos de aplicação da Lei no 8.884/1994, que efetivamente a inaugurou. Para isso, inicia-se com uma abordagem histórica, expondo as principais premissas que norteiam o exercício dessa política pública. Busca-se identificar, utilizando dados do Conselho Administrativo de Defesa Econômica (Cade) – como as condenações por setor econômico e decisões em atos de concentração e processos administrativos –, os principais obstáculos ao exercício eficaz da defesa da concorrência. Por fim, é ressaltado o momento oportuno de revisão do marco regulatório e explanados os principais pontos do Substitutivo ao Projeto de Lei no 3.937/2004 com essa finalidade.
