Practice leader Francisco Fuentes-Ostos leads the nine-associate antitrust team at MIJARES ANGOITIA CORTÉS Y FUENTES SC with partner Pilar Mata Fernández. The firm’s biggest client was Televisa until about 2011, Fuentes-Ostos said, but the group has since expanded its client base. Last year, the practice represented Citibank’s subsidiary Banamex in the sale of its acquiring business to EVO Payments. Mijares also advised drinks can maker Ball Corp during the government’s review of its purchase of rival Rexam, and divestiture buyer Molson Coors in the AB InBev/SABMiller tie-up.
The team is acting on behalf of two clients in COFECE’s investigation regarding alleged relative monopolistic practices in the market for the generation, processing and trading of credit information. It is also involved in the commission’s slot inquiry at Mexico City’s international airport.
Mijares, Angoitia, Cortés y Fuentes, S.C. was founded in 1994, integrating a team of highly-qualified lawyers focused on offering professional, sophisticated and quality legal services to satisfy its clients’ business needs. Today, as a leading firm in the Mexican market, its level of expertise is well-recognized in various practice areas. Deeply committed to quality and responsiveness, the firm has consolidated its status as one of the preeminent Mexican Law firms.
MACF’s antitrust group helps clients with merger reviews, cartel investigations and defense, and antitrust counseling and compliance. It has been involved in the most important mergers reviewed and monopolization cases investigated by the Mexican antitrust agencies.
