Chile

FERRADANEHME is led by founding partner Nicole Nehme Zalaquett. Nehme and partner Sander van der Voorde, who joined FerradaNehme from Allen & Overy, oversee a team of 10 associates – many of whom are former FNE officials.

A substantial part of the firm’s work over the past couple of years has concerned the wholesale and retail distribution of consumer goods, as well as the banking, communication and energy sectors. In addition to representing clients during investigations and merger processes before the FNE and the Chilean Competition Tribunal, FerradaNehme also advises nearly a dozen clients on competition compliance issues.

FerradaNehme successfully defended Nestlé Chile against claims that it and two other dairy companies allegedly abused their collective dominant position in the market for raw cow’s milk. The firm is also acting on behalf of Walmart Chile in a case initiated by FNE against supermarket companies, and is advising port concessionaire Antofagasta Terminal Internacional in a process aimed at modifying the restrictions on vertical integration on ports imposed by the predecessor of the competition tribunal in 2002.
