Special discussion: Brasil Medição, ADPF 46 and ADC 16

rnrnIn October, by request of the business association Brazil Medi��o, our firm conducted in S�o Paulo a day of presentations and debate over matters relating to services of billing and invoicing of public utilities, as well as to its outsourcing by the government and private concessionaires. The discussions were based on legal opinions made by Mar�al Justen Filho and centered on the extension of the so-called ?postal monopoly? after the 2009 Federal Supreme Court ruling in ADPF no. 46. The seminar occurred a few weeks before the Federal Supreme Court, in ADC no. 16, acknowledged the validity of article 71 of Law no. 8.666 of 1993 (Public Biddings and Government Contracts Act) and reduced the scope of application of Summary no. 331 of the Superior Labor Relations Court — one of the issues discussed in the seminar.
